Apple has launched a public test of the latest version of its web browser. Sadly, it’s still called Safari 4 and Steve Jobs still hasn’t answered our emails suggesting the name Safari Sagoody…
The web browser for Mac and Windows PCs also offers a Top Sites feature, showing a "stunning visual preview" of frequently visited pages.
That’s backed up by a full History Search, to search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages.
Meanwhile, Cover Flow allows users to flip through web history or bookmarks, and a Tabs on Top feature makes tabbed browsing "easier and more intuitive".
"Safari quickly loads HTML web pages three times faster than IE 7 and almost three times faster than Firefox 3."
All testing was conducted on an iMac 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo system running Windows Vista, with 2GB of RAM.
Safari 4 is a public beta for both Mac OS X and Windows and is available immediately as a free download at the Apple website.
