Apple Releases Safari 4 Beta To The World

This press release just hit the wires announcing the availability of Safari 4 as a BETA:

Apple® today announced the public beta of Safari® 4, the world’s fastest and most innovative web browser for Mac® and Windows PCs. The Nitro engine in Safari 4 runs JavaScript 4.2 times faster than Safari 3.* Innovative new features that make browsing more intuitive and enjoyable include Top Sites, for a stunning visual preview of frequently visited pages; Full History Search, to search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages; Cover Flow®, to easily flip through web history or bookmarks; and Tabs on Top, to make tabbed browsing easier and more intuitive.

That’s all well and good, but we’ll let web surfers be the judge of how fast and innovative it is. I’ll be downloading a copy shortly and playing with it to see what the fuss is about. If you do the same, please leave a comment and let us know what you think of it.

It’s available for Windows and Macintosh platforms now at
