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.

I like Safari but I'm still hooked on Chrome. I like the little things that Safari does like the "Reader" application, but that doesn't persuade me to leave Chrome because I've been using "Instapaper Text" for a long time now. I guess a browser is just based of what you want out of it.

Love its look, it's elegant. Fastest browser for mac. Becomes more powerful with GLims, Safari Adblocker, and Safari Cookies installed. No crashes.

This app is GREAT!

Safari 5 is the best browser out there for mac. READER is just awesome...

ça serait bien de parler en français aussi non?
regards

Best Browser for Mac but for Windows is Mozzila's Firefox.

Simply excellent

Safari 4 is nice and fast on my new MacBook Pro. The new features are awesome. Startup time is really snappy which is a big plus. Haven't run memory comparisons yet with Firefox, Camino.

How to ALWAYS open window in new tab:

Go to terminal and type:
defaults write com.apple.Safari TargetedClicksCreateTabs -bool true

Restart Safari.

Best browser for Mac when used with GlimmerBlocker.
