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!"

No IE8 or Chrome-like process management

Its page rendering is lightning fast on my favorite sites and it does have many cool features. Also, I have yet to see the instability that others are reporting.

But, I don't see anything like the 4 process models that Chrome has nor does it have the built-in Task Manager.

So, it's nice and I'll be sure to use it from time to time but nothing yet to displace Firefox as my go-to browser or Chrome as the work-in-progress future-browser.
