Tech News: Safari 4 (Beta) Launched

" Apple has released a new beta version of its Safari 4 Web browser with technology that the company claims makes it the world's faster browser. Apple says it's built on a new Nitro JavaScript engine that can execute code up to 30 times faster than IE 7 and more than three times faster than Firefox 3. And what about Safari 3? The Nitro engine in Safari will run JavaScript 4.2 times faster than the previous Safari build.

There's more than just a JavaScript speed boost. Safari 4 runs on both PCs and Macs, and it brings innovations from Mac OS X and even the iPhone to the browser.

For example, Safari 4 utilizes Apple's Cover Flow interface for flipping through a Web history or bookmarks. It makes Web pages appear in a layout similar to the Cover Flow interface Apple first introduced with the iPhone and added to Mac OS X for browsing through files.

Plus, there's a new Top Sites feature, which shows off a visual preview of frequently visited pages, displaying them as though the pages were all displayed on a wall full of monitors. "

----> I picked this news coz I'm using Safari.^.^ Just want to share this to everyone. Maybe you might be interested in using this browser coz from my personal experience, it's really a bit faster than the other browsers.^.^
