Safari

Version: 6.0.2 || Release Date: 2012-10-28 || License: Freeware Developer: Apple, Inc. | App Owner: marcus

Browsing made beautiful. And smart.

Before Safari, browsers were an afterthought. Something you put up with if you wanted to surf the internet. One browser looked and felt just like another, so you chose the one that worked the best and crashed the least. They were ugly, cluttered affairs, whose interfaces competed for your attention and made browsing — the very purpose for which they were created — more difficult. Safari changes all that.

Safari is designed to emphasize the browsing, not the browser. The browser frame is a single pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when needed. By default, there’s no status bar. Instead, a progress gear turns as your page loads. And if you so choose, you can hide almost the entire interface, removing virtually every distraction from the browser window. A great browser should get out of your way and let you simply enjoy the web. Safari does just that. And it does it regardless of platform.

The first browser to deliver the “real” internet to a mobile device, Safari renders pages on iPhone and iPod touch just as you see them on your computer. But this is more than just a scaled down mobile-version of the original. It takes advantage of the technologies built into these multi-touch devices. The page shifts and reformats to fill the window when you turn it on its side. You zoom in just by pinching and extending your fingers. Of course, no matter how you access it, Safari is always blazing fast and easy-to-use.

4.0 final is incredible. I like that they reverted back to normal tabs instead of that crazy titlebar hack.

[pt. 1] the safari 4 beta is much faster [than safari 3] on my macbook pro (running os x 10.4.11). clicktoflash, safariplus, safariblock & greasekit all still work, which is fantastic.

[pt. 2] i had to use almost every plist edit i found [on this page: http://xrl.us/behmmx] to get back some semblance of a sensible interface, otherwise, safari 4 is a more than welcome change. plus, even icab (it uses the webkit version installed on your system) works great with the new engine. amazing stuff.

It's great but it doesn't have tagging for bookmarks

Didn't crash, did freeze up. Needed to force quit. Happened twice. Don't have input managers or simbl. Be sure to have a backup copy of Safari 3 stashed somewhere, in case you need to revert.

wow, full-page zoom is awfully nice. one of those things I'd never have wanted but love now that it's here.

To all the people having problems with Safari crashing right away. Uninstall all the SIMBL stuff and Input Managers that are supposed to expand Safari's functionality. 1Password, SafariStand, Saft etc.

Tried it 2 times, one time with a complete uninstall of Safari 3, but the beta crashes every time I try to start it. Anyone else having this problem?

Just wonderful

I'm back to using Camino as my main browser, because I got fed up of restarting Safari every hour due to excessive memory usage.
Been using Camino for 9 hours (600+ pages visited, 12 windows still open) without having to restart it, and it's only using 120 MB memory (Private Memory).
