    I tried it a few months ago, don't remember if it was still beta or not.
    It lasted only a couple of days in my computer.
    I can remember it was fast, very fast.
    At that time I was looking for a browser to replace Opera, wich I never really liked, despite it's superiorness.
    I remember not liking Safari becuase the pages looked somehow "not 100% visual quality"... specially the edges and fonts looked a bit rough. Don't know if this will still be so.

    Safari, faster than Opera...okay. The rest....no way! Not on this 'puter (or the last) anyway. Seeing their "test" delayed mine...

    Hello,

    What does the loading time mean?

    If you browse for 1 hour - that's 3600 seconds, the loading time takes only about 1/600 of that time, that's about 0.2%. That said, see that you don't use annoying security software, which can significantly delay work and load times.

    Example: at my work, when McAfee anti-virus was installed, FF would load in 5 sec. Now, it takes about 1 sec, after removing the crap thingie.

    Wrote a design of experiment paper on this, I might publish it.

    Mrk

    I probably should wait for some of my betas (3) to go final before adding another...

    Could someone post some comments or link(s) about the security of Safari compared to Firfox, Opera and IE7 in Vista?

    thanks
