Safari 4 Public BetaFebruary 24th, 2009
Safari 4 has entered public beta. It’s blazingly fast (unless you’re using WebKit nightlies already) and has tons of features, even outside of the WebKit core.
Some additional notes:
- The Safari 4 Welcome animation is done in HTML5 and CSS Animation. It’s not a video. (Well the compass is) But still very sexy.
- I swiped the welcome animation audio and placed it in this post.
- The Top Sites feature is slick. Those curved preview surfaces are just not ready to be done in CSS Effects.
- CSS Transforms 3D is not available in this public beta.
- Tabs are placed on top. It’s a little harder to drag them around for me when re-arranging, but see if you like them better.
- Safari 4 does not use 1 process per tab contrary to other news reports.
