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!"

Leading the way with innovation.

I know all software giants need a degree of BS to get where they are, but I find the above quote a little offensive given half the features Apple have finally added have been in Opera, Firefox and even IE for years now.

But then I guess the headline: "Playing catch-up with the competition" doesn't earn as many downloads. ;)
