    HI.
    Well, took a chance and downloaded Safari 4 beta and found it to be pretty spectacular. Yes, it is somewhat faster than Safari 3 and the top hits pane and the cover flow-like feature of the bookmarks window, including the search button really speeds up the ability to find one’s bookmarked websites. So with this version, getting around the web is even more streamlined and efficient.
    I like the even cleaner look of Safari 4’s interface, leaving more room for website content. Very nice.
    I use 1Password and by mid-afternoon on the day Safari 4 beta was released, Agile Web Solutions had a fix and then later in the day, an update that enabled seamless use of 1Password with Safari 4 beta. Brilliant!
    Growl works fine and I found the Speed Download app to work flawlessly as well with Safari 4 beta.
    Highlighted this post and clipped it to one of my Notebook 3 notebooks and that, too, works fine.
    Haven’t come across any problems so far on either the PowerPc Mac Mini or the Intel Mac Mini.
    I think Safari 4 beta is a fantastic browser. Thanks so much!

    I think that Safari 4 is really cool. The tabs on the top of the window is really cool. The Top Sites feature is a really sleek way to navigate around the web. Same with the Cover Flow bookmarks. Now only if they put cover flow history/bookmarks on the iPod touch. Not many major problems so far except on my PC it doesn’t have the top sites feature because my graphics card is too low. I hate that PC anyway… So far I think Safari’s OK. I usually like Camino, but now I am going back to Safari.

    I found a glitch in Safari 4. If you go to History > Mark page as snapback, it’s not there. I’m downgrading to Safari 3. I just downloaded it today. I use that feature ALOT!!!!

    I keep getting indication I need to upgrade to the beta upgrade.
    Been there, done that.
    I like the speed.
    I did have to run Disk Utility from the DVD last night. Mac seemed to be in permanent sleep mode after attempting a hard start up. Probably not related.?
    Also was having in previous Safari and am having (Beta 4) to use option click to download.?
