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!"

Pff. Tried out Safari 4 Beta and it scored only 98/100 on Acid3 (@ Windows 7 Beta 1). Had a Mac-using pal check it out too and he got the same results.

I am getting 100/100 on Acid3. Safari 4 could not render the animation above 30fps on only two tests and I am running this on an iBook G4.

I don't know how that could possibly be true...

I have the following systems with Safari 4 now installed:

G4 PowerBook 1.33 GHz - OS X 10.5
G5 iMac 2.0 GHz - OS X 10.5
Intel i7 3GHz Desktop - Windows 7

All of these machines have scored 100/100 on the Acid 3 test.
