Oh mah gah new Apple stuff

The Safari web browser is now open for public beta on Windows. It claims to load pages twice as fast as Internet explorer and 1.8x as fast as Firefox. Download

The next incarnation of the OS, dubbed Leopard, looks pretty fucking pimp with new shiny features.

There's probably more stuff to sift through as well.

I've never noticed any slowness issues with FireFox (besides when I'm torrenting like nobody's business and the connection itself is slow), but I suppose if I ever do I'll consider Safari. Now that FireFox has the IE emulator though....

So far the new Safari seems just like the old one. It does seem faster, but that might just be in my head.


eta - actually, it does seem somewhat faster.

I'm so excited for Leopard now too!

I was watching the MacRumors.com live text and picture updates throughout the entire keynote speech.

i just downloaded safari for windows, and i've lost count of how many times i reported bugs already. it wasn't completely unexpected, but i didn't think it was gonna be that messy. i'm gonna keep using firefox until they release the next beta version.

I'm noticing an increase in speed on my Mac with the beta. I also really dig the resizable text windows.

I'm using the beta on my Macbook right now...and it's been great so far. We'll see though. I won't be too disappointed if something doesn't work out since it's a beta.

So, I started using Safari over Firefox. It actually is faster (Lies, I never had speed "issues' with Firefox, either...but now I know it could be faster! ).

One MAJOR complaint, though: With Safari, you can't do Gmail chat. If anyone's figured out a way, let me know...but for now, it doesn't even show me who's online/that I'm online/etc.

I told my mom about the next iPod upgrade coming this holiday season and it turns out she and my dad were going to surprised me with an 80 Gig video for my birthday.

So we decided to send the 80 gig back and wait until the next iPod model comes out and get that. So yeah, I'm hoping there's an upgrade.

I still feel bad about it though.

I'm trying out Safari on my XP and I gotta tell you, its faster than firefox.. not that many features though. Maybe new release will have extensions? I watched the Apple keynote an i'm amazed.

just realized the resizeable text windows here now!! Safari and Firefox are loads better than IE!!!
