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!"

I think so. I remember when Safari announced that they passed the Acid 3 completely, they also specified a hardware configuration. Let me see if can find the link.

They mention that it passed on a 2.4 GHz macbook. Each test is allowed to take a maximum of 33 ms, with a total of 100 tests. They were able to finish it with all 100 tests in 330 ms.
