I have been using the beta version of “Safari 4″:http://www.apple.com/safari/ recently released by Apple and so far I have found it much better and faster than Safari 3. There are plenty of new features found in the beta – some for the better, some not so.
Here are a list of reviews and tips for those who wants to use Safari 4 beta:
- “Download Safari 4 Beta”:http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
- “150 features – New and Old”:http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html
- “Safari 4 benchmarked”:http://crave.cnet.co.uk/software/0,39029471,49301219,00.htm – fastest so far?
- “Safari 4 review – Daring Fireball: Ob”:http://daringfireball.net/2009/03/safari_4_public_beta
- “Safari 4 Hidden Preferences”:http://swedishcampground.com/safari-4-hidden-preferences – to help revert to some old UI
- “Safari 4 Buddy”:http://www.swoon.net/site/software.html by Swoon to easily enable those hidden preferences
As it is, this is still a beta version and might break some functions or have some infrequent crashes, so do use it with caution.
I have also tried it on local Citibank and OCBC Internet Banking sites with no issues, and they do load much faster.
