Internet & Networking The Shiira Project has announced the release of latest version of their Mac OS X Web browser, Shiira 2.0. Shiira is a web browser based on Web Kit and written in Cocoa. The goal of the Shiira Project is to create a browser that is better and more useful than Safari. All source code used in this software is publicly available. One of the features of Shiira is Tab Expose. Tab Expose shows all open tabs the same way that Expose shows all open windows (similar to IE7). Shiira 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.

Safari Cache

I tend to use Safari, Firefox and Camino, Camino is great, but it's still got a few issues with sites, although the beta is currently better than the stable release.

Firefox always seems slow and sluggish to me, but it works like it should.

Safari, I use it for nearly everything, nearly because as soon as you start working on site development and coding, that caching will seriously, DRIVE YOU INSANE.

It's caching is pathetic, I've been able to hit the back button and have something come up from last week. The amount of times I've changed code, to refresh, thinking it didn't work when it did, but you don't find out until another 10 changes down the track.

I know you can turn the caching off, but that then has problem with some uploading scripts etc.

Safari really is a nice browser, so long as they fix this caching problem in leopard, I'll be happy.

Downloading this Shiira, give it a bit of a road test.
