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!"

Security?

One of the major advances Chrome made was the multi-process isolated renderer/plugins architecture. IE8 is also going in that direction, but Chrome managed to be released first. Is Safari doing anything to ensure that their (inevitable) security bugs do not result in a total compromise of the user's account?
