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!"

Apple should copy more stuff from others.

So should Google! (Multitouch for Android please.)

MS has a long history in doing just that ;)

Tell that to MS and many others who makes a boat load of cash on the patents they hold for software. it makes sence when your a business trying to make as much money as possible, and most businesses are in it for the money.

I'm not a big Microsoft fan, but to their credit, I don't recall any cases where they've tried to use patents to push people around. They, and other large companies have no choice but to file a patent every time they take a crap in order to fend off patent trolls.
