Hm... just updated on Lion (with ML I'm not in a hurry, I'm gonna update in the next few days). The huge tabs and the reader button look a little strange at first, but I think you just have to get used to it. One thing I really miss from Chrome is that if you have more opened tabs and you want to close them, they don't shrink until your mouse hovers over the X button, so you can just keep closing them without always moving your cursor.

The new pinch gesture for tab switching unfortunately doesn't work under Lion.

But hell it is a LOT snappier

And best of all: Top Sites finally seems to work nice and smooth, it doesn't freeze and always highlights the pages without having to move the cursor around!

New features, but none of the serious bugs fixed

Great. Lots of new features. But let me guess. It still has massive memory bloat, and it still reverts your Google searches to whatever you typed into the address bar, not what you typed on the Google page. Any other non-fixed bugs?

Is it just me, or does hitting the 'delete' key no longer go back a page?

Haven't had a chance to download it yet, but any idea if youtube works smoothly?

I ended up switching over to chrome only for the reason that youtube videos embedded in sites would never work properly. And typically on a average web browsing day I would come across 20-30.

I just heard. I'm really happy that they came to that decision in the end. It was never meant to be and I'm pretty sure a lot of money went wasted into developing it. iTunes is great on Windows, so is Quicktime, but that's as far as it should go.

Nope, not just you. Don't know how I feel about that one...I guess they really are trying to make the trackpad as big a feature as possible.

Ugh. Don't care much for the expanding tabs, or the omnibar.

So far, I've just gone on YT directly but it's been smooth as butter. When people say it feels snappier, they aren't lying.

Don't they still offer QuickTime (which IMO is a major fail on Windows).

Anybody know how to revert back to 5.1.7?
I'm using MacBook Air 2012, and 5.1.7 was a lot smoother at scrolling than
6.0.
Thanks!

Thought i'd try the new safari whilst mountain lion downloads, and I have to say, it feels snappier (get mad haters :P) Scrolling is much smoother, even in lion, but looking closely I can still see little choppy bits, but with mountain lion I think core graphics got updated,.

You should upgrade. Apple stopped support for Snow Leopard. There will be no security updates anymore.

Address bar now hides http/https prefix and makes the path after domain name light grey, it's nearly invisible. I guess that's the trend now, with Chrome and Firefox doing the same thing, IE9 being the exception.

That prefix hiding, by the way, is very annoying if you access a site over https that has some content (images, scripts, ads) delivered over plain http. In this case you get no indication that the main page uses https whatsoever.

Maybe there's a hidden pref somewhere to disable this nonsense and bring back the old behaviour?

Looks like scrolling in pages with animated GIF's finally seem to work smoothly.

Nope, 5.1.7 was released a couple months ago.

If you go to the Safari download page, http://www.apple.com/safari/download/, you get redirected back to http://www.apple.com/safari/ and there's no download link.

On http://www.apple.com/downloads/ there's no longer any mention of neither Safari nor QuickTime.

It's official, Safari for Windows is dead.

By the way, it's interesting to note that there are still RSS images in the app bundle, and they even have retina versions.
