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!"

dragging the only tab out of a window does not destroy the window, and the animation, while nice, is way too slow.

That being said, this is an awesome release. I would use it over firefox any day, but I will keep chrome for my day to day browsing for now

Really? The auto-destruct of a Safari 4 window when the last tab is dragged out works on WinXP.

The animation isn't all that slow but it could be faster.
We'll see how it works for the release candidates.
