Call me lucky, but I haven't had an ounce of trouble. I'm absolutely loving all of the new features. It's also super fast and passes Acid 3. Cool

Just noticed on the Top site page, some sites have a page curl in the top corner and a star highlighting them, it seems to be highlighting that they have updated since the last time you visited.. nice

I just noticed the same thing. That's really going to come in handy.

I'm sticking with Firefox for now. It looks promising though.

I just installed Safari 4 for Windows on one of my other systems. Good lord, that's one fugly looking browser. The fonts are better looking, but the rest is hideous. Sad

I think Cover Flow is a gimmick especially for a web browser...

Thanks for the link, I'm going to stick with Tabs on top till weekend and see if it grows on me, nice to know I can turn it off though if I need to.

I agree. I hardly ever use the Cover Flow view in iTunes or the Finder.

I don't mind the Tabs being on top though. I just think they need to be a little bigger and shaded differently. It's sort of hard telling them apart right now.

Can you use it alongside Safari 3, or does it replace 3? Safari 3 has been freezing up on me a lot of late, so this would be a good time to try 4.

It overwrites Safari 3.

That's true, but you can option-drag Safari 3 out to your desktop (or somewhere else) before installing Safari 4. This will let you run both versions.
