Apple Apple released the Safari 4 Beta today. Features: Tabs on top. "Top Sites" 'Speed Dial' feature. "Smart" address/search fields. HTML5 Canvas. HTML5 Audio/Video (though no Ogg). Acid 3. CSS Animation/Gradients/Masks/Reflection. CSS Web Fonts. New "Nitro" Javascript engine - "Up to 4 times faster than Firefox 3.1". 'Native' look and native font rendering on Windows Vista/XP. I can think of only one thing: "Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!"

You can specify multiple video sources with . Thus, annoyingly, you can encode OGG and H.264 files and the browser will pick the right thing.


That's all very good and well, but it's twice the serve space and extra development work for what should have been standardised.

As much as I hate flash, I can't blame web developers for using FLV to get around the lack of video embedding standard.
