Hey guys,

Has anyone else tried the Safari 4 Beta yet? This thing is flying. And they ripped all the good stuff from Chrome to make it happen. Tabs at the top of the window bar, just like chrome, and this new "Top Sites" thing is like Chrome but made bad-ass.

I am impressed.

Yep - I really like how the Zoom In/Out now resizes everything, not just the text. It also zooms via multitouch pinch and un-pinch on my MacBook Pro.

I have noticed something funky with the fonts over at Slashdot, specifically the Re: (Score 2)s that you can see in the attached screenshot.

Also, on the Top Sites thing, if you have any websites with RSS feeds that are updated when the page is updated, you will notice a blue star appear, that means there has been an update.

Extremely handy for sites like http://stackoverflow.com/ and off course forum.osnn.net

I put it on my Win box and really like it, have made it default on that box. Oh and I first saw that "top sites" thing in Opera before Chrome/Google lifted it. ;) It looks like it's gonna shake up the browser market a bit I hope (anything that does away with FF/IE market is good). :lick:

I am very impressed. They definitely took some tips from Chromium which is very cool. I wish they also had the option to close all tabs to the right like Chromium does but that's missing. The tabbing at the top is nice.

I may do some experimenting with this. I have always hated Safari but they've finally given it a face lift that makes it quite attractive.

What tweaks exactly? I don't see any tweaks mentioned that would make Safari any better. Rather all I see is tweaks that destroy the value of the new version.

As for the bookmark handling, I have my bookmarks bar, and everything I bookmark is just dragged to it, I don't use any method of sorting bookmarks.

The only tweak I've done is to restore the load progress bar.
Code:
defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4IncludeToolbarRedesign -bool NO
defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4LoadProgressStyle -bool NO

I prefer the new way, most websites load fast enough that I don't have time to check on the loading status, and with the speed that websites are rendered I find it has even less of a place.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
