Safari 4 Beta March 3, 2009

Posted by Jake in Uncategorized.

The new Safari 4 Beta has been released for Mac and windows. It’s looks good with its 3D effects and the windows release is slightly less Mac looking, making it look right on your PC’s desktop. But when your using it you can’t help but feel that it is a copy of another browser, Google Chrome. I use Chrome and i like it but Safari just feels like a Chrome copy with some more 3D effects.

It even has the tabs at the top of the window in which Chrome is the only other browser like it. However Googles big aim was speed and apple has come up with the new “Nitro JavaScript Engine”. It claims to be 6x faster than Internet explorer 8 and 4x faster than Firefox 3.1. However Firefox 3.2 is going to be released soon which may be faster.

However they don’t mention Chrome and I think there is one reason. I think that Chrome is simply faster, I feel Chrome more respnsive with less time waiting for pages to load which may be the JavaScript engine is faster or the 3D effects on Safari is slowing it down, but I will go for speed over 3D effects any day.
I’m sticking with googles mighty Chrome.
