Apple makes available Safari 4 beta


apple-safari-4.pngSafari, the default browser on Apple computers, has just been upgraded. The company claims the new beta is “the fastest and most inovating web browser for Mac and Windows PCs”.

Apple’s lifted some of the best features of other browsers – Chrome’s speed and tabs in the title bar, and Opera’s top sites. They’ve also added a cover-flow style interface for browsing through your bookmarks too. Pretty, but a little pointless?

Interesting, Safari 4’s default UI on Windows looks like Windows, unlike previous versions where it looked like OSX. That’s a pretty significant change for a company that usually prides itself on its design.

If you want to try it out, it’s available from Apple’s website right now. Let us know what you think in the comments.

One thought on “Apple makes available Safari 4 beta

  • I love safari.
    Everyone bangs on about firefox and I can see that you would prefer firefox if you were used to IE, but firefox is still slow and clunky.
    Safari is very simple and very fast
