Apple Announces Safari 4 Public Beta
Tuesday, February 24, 2009 - 10:22 AM EST
Posted by: Glenn

Apple today announced the public beta of Safari 4, a new version their popular web browser for the Mac and Windows PCs. According to the company, Safari 4 is the world's fastest web browser. The "Nitro" engine in Safari 4 runs JavaScript 4.2 times faster than Safari 3. It's also the first browser to pass the Web Standards Project's Acid3 test, which examines how well a browser adheres to CSS, JavaScript, XML and SVG web standards that are specifically designed for dynamic web applications.

Other new features in Safari 4 include the following:

  Top Sites, a display of frequently visited pages in a stunning wall of previews so users can jump to their favorite sites with a single click;

  Full History Search, where users search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages to easily return to sites they've seen before;

  Cover Flow, to make searching web history or bookmarks as fun and easy as paging through album art in iTunes;

  Tabs on Top, for better tabbed browsing with easy drag-and-drop tab management tools and an intuitive button for opening new ones;

  Smart Address Field, that automatically completes web addresses by displaying an easy-to-read list of suggestions from Top Sites, bookmarks and browsing history;

  Smart Search Field, where users fine-tune searches with recommendations from Google Suggest or a list of recent searches;

  Full Page Zoom, for a closer look at any website without degrading the quality of the site's layout and text;

  Developer Tools - built-in web developer tools to debug, tweak and optimize a website for peak performance and compatibility; and

  Windows-native look in Safari for Windows, that uses standard Windows font rendering and native title bar, borders and toolbars so Safari fits the look and feel of other Windows XP and Windows Vista applications.

Safari 4 for Mac OS X requires Mac OS X Leopard version 10.5.6 and Security Update 2009-001 or Mac OS X Tiger version 10.4.11, a minimum 256MB of memory, and is designed to run on any Intel-based Mac or a Mac with a PowerPC G5, G4 or G3 processor and built-in FireWire. Safari 4 for Windows requires Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista, a minimum 256MB of memory and a system with at least a 500 MHz Intel Pentium processor.
