so has anyone checkedout Apple's new web browser? SAFARI? I want to check it out. I think I'm going to look at it this week. Has anyone else seen it? Any opinions?

i've checked it out... looks really nice. their Xwindows is pretty decent as well.. one of my forum members was bragging about it.. he seems to swear that it's outstanding... it's about time too because there seems to be a true lack of good web browsers for the mac.

I've tried safari, and although I think it is pretty fast I have 2 major problems with it.

1. The brushed metal makes it ugly.
2. No tabs.

Its is just a beta, and a very strong beta release so hopefully improvements will come.

The best browser IMHO for Mac OS X is Chimera. Looks great, fast and solid, and does tabs. Easily beats safari right now. Based on mozilla...


Download the nightly build from December 20th, which is there latest release... Its right on the page.

The Apple X11 is great in my opinion too, take a look at this thread on SE when it was first released.

Safari is ok, but now that firebird is out, there is no reason to use it IMO.
And I am also real tired of the brushed metal look.

I can't stay away from it now. Firefox just sits there on the desktop untouched. Of course, there are tabs now, and no trouble with any plugins.
