Top Sites does seem much faster, but I'm sticking with Chrome.

Safari 4 life! Very Happy


The update feels good. It could be just quitting then reopening it would do the same but I'm always glad for updates on safari. They always seem better.

I was having a bunch of trouble opening certain sites with 4.0.4 and now that is gone. And the funny thing is, I use a Linksys router. Does anyone know what they really changed?

I'm too lazy to restart right now. It will have to wait until the weekend like everything else. Wink

I love having the tabs on top. I wish Apple had kept that option around because it was killer in the Safari 4 beta.

I feel no difference in the performance of Top Sites either way. Everything else seems about the same too.

I hardly ever use Top Sites, so it's hard telling.

After doing the update. It won't open all I get is the spinning ball and Safari not responding. Good thing I had Firefox. Now what? Can I just move it to the trash and go to apple site and try downloading it again? Need help.
Thanks Joe.
Also is there another browser that is popular besides Firefox or maybe I should just stick with firefox. Either way I don't like the idea something may be screwed up.

Okay, yes Safari is faster. However, still weird quirks (does anyone else have the problem where it sometimes decides to open in the top right corner instead of where it was last opened?).

I'm still using Firefox, even with it's memory leaks, etc. I've tried Camino, but it has issues with stored passwords. I love the look and speed of Chrome, but I set my browser window to be NEARLY full screen (use Spaces!!) and with Chrome, when you download a file it EXPANDS the bottom of the window, which then bumps up against the Dock causing it to move up. Chrome on Windows doesn't do this. If they would fix that one thing, I'd switch.

Anyone have a browser that does it all? Smile

Until any other browser offers easy to use AdBlock and NoScript I won't be switching. I haven't found the Safari adblock programs as easy to use or as customizable.
