Have you guys noticed the new menu option? now you can select if you want a "Develop" Menu to show up on the menu bar, it lets you change the User Agent to Firefox, Opera, IE6 or 7, you also have the manual setting option and thats useful when you run into sites that are IE7 only or another specific browser Smile give it a try


It looks like features from Safari Enhancer were added. I used to use that so that Safari could be used on pages that would not support it.

I haven't noticed much of a speed difference on my Macs and I haven't installed it on the PC yet, will upgrade that later and see how that goes.

Very nice addition. However, still no "disabled animated GIF" option. Confused

Camino failed 47, but I'm not exactly sure what that site is testing... Confused

I don't think anything will pass the Acid3 test. That includes Firefox, Camino, Opera and Safari. Safari 3.1 seems to do the best though. Opera, on the other hand, just crashed on me.
