Apple A few days ago, Apple surprised everyone by releasing the first beta of Safari 4, the company's latest version of their WebKit browser. While I generally love Safari on the Mac (my browser of choice on that side of the fence), I've never felt as comfortable with it on the Windows side of things. In any case, this latest beta has made a very bold move in the interface department, and I'm sad to say that it's not for the better. Let me explain where it went wrong for Apple.

You can edit it on Windows with this software:

On Vista, the file is com.apple.Safari.plist in
C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Preferences

You just add
<key>DebugSafari4TabBarIsOnTop</key>
<false/>
somewhere in there.

It only kind of works, though. It gets the tabs out of the title bar, but the tab bar isn't properly implemented, so it's unusable, unless you like navigating your tabs sight-unseen with keyboard shortcuts.
