Apple Announces Safari 4 Beta


I don’t know about you, but as a full-fledged Mac user, I get very sick of using the de facto browser, Firefox. It’s big, bloated and uses up all my resources on my iMac G5. Loading up JavaScript-heavy websites? Go get a drink, because it’s going to take a good hour for Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Digg to finish loading. Luckily, help has arrived in the form of Safari 4.

Apple says the new Safari beta handles JavaScript 4.2x faster than Safari 3, which is a decent and much-welcome speed boost. It’s also apparently 30x faster than IE 7 and three times faster than Firefox. In fact, there’s over 150 awesome features in Safari 4. Read the list on Apple’s website and then download the beta to experience it for yourself.
