Apple At the WWDC today, Apple has lifted the veil on a number of features of its upcoming operating system, Snow Leopard. Most of the work on Snow Leopard has gone into under-the-hood technologies and optimisations, but there are also a number of interface tweaks. The company also updated some of its laptops, while also lowering their prices. We got all the news from MacRumorsLive.com.

Downloaded and installed Safari 4, everything is working perfectly, no crashes or problems yet; seems that Apple has really put their foot down when it comes to putting out a stable browser.

Rumour has it that the version shown in the demo is 10A380, so hopefully there would have been some improvements (namely a 64bit driver for GMA 950/x3100 MacBooks).

Safari is blazing for me too - this is seriously an amazing piece of software. And I'm running on an old Powermac G4.

Though... I did sort of get used to the tabs on the top, even if they needed a little tweaking.

True, but I guess they went back to the drawing board and realised it is best not to rock the boat given if you do have the tabs at the top it is very easy to tear them off when you don't want to separate them. I had that happen several times with me when I am using Chrome. Don't get be wrong though, the idea of tabs at the top is a nice idea but practicality wise it can cause some problems.
