Safari 4 Has Landed
Apple has released a new beta version of its Safari 4 Web browser for both PCs and Macs claiming it the world's faster browser executing code up to 30 times faster than IE 7 and more than three times faster than Firefox 3. It brings innovations from Mac OS X and even the iPhone to the browser such as Cover Flow interface for Web history and bookmarks and makes web pages appear similar to the interface first introduced with the iPhone.
A Top Sites feature, is similar to Chrome, previewing frequently visited pages, displaying them on a wall full of monitors. A Full History Search, searches through titles, Web addresses, and the complete text of recently viewed pages and Safari’s tabbed browsing looks more similar to Chrome. Finally Full Page Zoom makes it easier to zoom into a Web site without degrading the quality of the site's layout and text.
