    I'm not sure if I'm the first to post this, but I noticed that Safari now takes advantage of the keyboard shortcuts Google uses for its Gmail service. I never used to be able to use Gmail shortcuts while browsing on Safari, and that always irked me. Now I can! :D

    Cool, i did not even know there were shortcuts. Is there a link for the shortcuts. Also if it irked you, just think that at least you have a great mail app that comes only on OSX ;)

    The editing buttons in the reply box on Macrumors now work correctly too. For example, you can select text in a post, click the bold button, and it will automatically get wrapped in bold tags. Before, no matter what you selected, the bold tags would get put at the end of the post. It worked for a long time in the Webkit nightlies, but for some reason, that feature was never added to the official release until now.

    Yep, there are handy shortcuts for navigating through gmail messages, composing a new message, and archiving messages. You can enable the gmail shortcuts through your gmail options menu.
