I'm not an apple fan, but anything that takes away users from google chrome is fine by me

I've been using Firefox for about 3 years, but I thought I might as well give Safari a go seeing as I'm a Mac user now, so at the moment I'm favouring Firefox. I'm giving Safari a week though.

I like the fact the tabs are at the top of the window. Gives you that tiny bit of extra page height.

aw, for some reason I pictured some sort of safari game with graphics in the realm of Far Cry 2 but more animals and ****. I am dissapoint.

hmmm, using it now, seems a bit resource hogging. The fan came on almost instantaneously when I started it up, unlike firefox, and it isn't as quickly responsive as firefox. Altogether runs slower than expected given that I'm on a 2Ghz Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM and nothing else running.

edit: now, that I've said that, it suddenly sped up and the fan stopped. Also very sleek looking, I like the new Tab bar arrangement very much, minimalist like chrome but not lacking features in the same way. New 'top sites' thing very nice, if a little buggy (it is a beta mind).

currently I'd give it 4/5, could beat Firefox 3. The only thing I'm missing so far is Adblock.

doubleedit: also, it has a porn mode, same as older versions of safari.

Private Browsing

The only redeeming factor about Firefox is Ad-Block. I'm really getting tired of FF. It's pretty glitchy and takes way too long to start up. Make an Ad-Block for Safari already...

...modes and scales are still useless.

Yeah "porn mode" is like Chrome's "incognito" where it doesn't add your browsing habits to your history, lol.

It will support add ons when the final version is out (Safari 3 does). It might now, I'm not sure, it disables my 1 add on on start up because it says it's stability with the new version isn't known.
#18
now been playing with it for about 10 minutes, definitely faster than firefox, I love the UI (so small!) and the top sites thing, as I said before is fantastic.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

I'm so pissed at Apple right now. I can't install it on my Mac because it's already too old. I bought it 6 months ago! What the ****, Apple?!

You sure? What Mac you got and what version of OSX?

EDIT: Just upgrade. Click the Apple logo in the top left corner and click software update and there should be an update in there.

Don't be so quick to blame others before you evaluate your own intelligence.

5.6 is a free upgrade from 5.5. Click on the Apple logo on the left and click Software Update.

Firefox has a porn mode already.

In run, type "Firefox.exe -profilemanager" to set up multiple profiles.

If they've got a version that works for my tiger version 10.4.11, I doubt your computer is too old.

On the browser, I've yet to see any big changes other than the top sites feature. I like the look of it, but I don't think I'll do anything differently that I have already.


edit- aww, man, they got rid of the refresh button and put it inside the URL bar.

I would prefer if the scroller remained as the Apple Safari scroller that looks uber cool. I hate the generic Firefox scroller.
#32
ugh, and they got rid of the feature that shows the website loading inside your URL bar. Now it's just a little icon that doesn't show you how much still needs to be loaded
#33
I think it looks great.
I don't like the menu layout. That's it. lol
#34
Okay, yeah, I'm a dumbass.

I had to run 3 software updates though. I finally have it, and I must say, it's indeed nice.

lol ofc I know how to create a bookmark, but when I do what I'm supposed to do I get nothing.

Edit: Is it possible to speed up the scrolling speed?

not that I know of, try System Preferences/Control Panel. I have to say, I love Safari scrolling, I always missed it when I moved to Firefox - FF feels too jerky, not as smooth I suppose it's designed for a normal scroll mouse with notches, rather than two fingers on a trackpad.

You can get Adblock for Safari, I have it.
