    Safari 3.1 coming... 2.5 times FASTER than 3.0?
    Just read this article about Safari 3.1. Apparently this thing is running circles around any web browser ever conceived.

    As long as Apple makes it an update available to Tiger users as well... That's all I ask for. I find Safari flaky at times and it crashes.

    My good friend macheadcase!(Remember i was the one with the kernel panic iMac that you soo graciously helped out??).Good to see you..
    Moving on with my post entry:
    I tend not to use Safari because it does crash very often,Thus causing me to use FLOCK web browser because of the presets i use for blogging and uploading pictures to Flickr(Flock has only crashed on me 1 time since using it).When i had Tiger it would crash and with Leopard it still crashes from time to time.Maybe this next so called update will gear towards both Tiger and leopard users(Do not see why the updates would stop for that OS ).
    There is another report going around stating that the update is only included within the Leopard Interface.

    Well if it's only for Leopard users, that's a total bummer. I am not going Leopard for a while: not until the OS is more stable anyhow. The way I see it, it might need at least two more updates to correct most of the bugs.

    I didn't realize you were still using Tiger! Me also although I am not experiencing crashes with Safari. I wonder why some are and some aren't. Like you I sure hope this new one applies to Tiger also.

    MHC, I think it's good to hold out on Leopard for now, but I also think that 10.5.2 is the "real Leopard" they were wanting to ship. Just a few weeks away now.

    As for Safari, I tried the latest build of Webkit and must say I didn't notice much. Maybe it really makes a difference only on very high bandwidth connection, I'm on a 10MBit/s here and 25MBit at my college apartment. Tests were done on a fibre channel.

    Nah that Safari update won't change much of anything for the majority of us then.

    I doubt they will update it for Tiger. Judging from the article, this is more than just an update to the Safari app but a whole major tweaking of the Webkit. Besides, it didn't take them long to leave Safari for Panther in the dust also once Tiger was out the door. Good gawd... I tried using Safari recently on my Powerbook, still running 10.3, and you could really tell how far behind it got left.

    I really find it curious how so many people have problems with Safari, and Leopard for that matter. Besides this one quirk I recently had that seems to be related to the more-recent Quicktime update, I've been trouble-free. I can't say Safari has never crashed, but it is pretty rare, and does so no less than Firefox has.

    Interesting, I've been using WebKit nightly for about a year, faster than Safari.

    Hey Yogi - long time no see!

    I'm just giving the latest nightly a test drive as well:

    It might be a little bit faster, but it's not the huge increase the article implies.
    Then again, the only sites I really find "slow" with Safari are AJAX heavy things such as my netvibes personalized homepage.

    Yes im as well giving webkit a run and as i can tell i do see a bit of overall speed difference(By loading the same page on safari and webkit at the same time on the same type of specs on each machine).Webkit did not crash as i visited a friends website whereas safari crashed immediately and always does when i visit his site.

    I have very few problems with safari 3.0.4 under Tiger.

    I don't know why I have so few problems, the only thing I can think of is that I keep my fonts very much under control (outside of the essential system fonts I only load up other fonts when I need them for design work and have them close down at shutdown)
