    Well, it looks like Safari v67 is out, there are already screen shots over in the Spymac gallerys; and I'm in the queue to download it now (;)). So has anyone else got it yet? (Other that u ADC guys)

    edit: Anyone with any version of Safari may find this thread of interest.

    edit2: After contacting the author of Safari Enhancer, they have updated it to work with v67. You can download it here. With this you can add/remove brushed metal, as well as various other things, full info can be found here.

    We can't talk warez here, get me on iChat ;) (see profile)

    Yeah, it seems better, tabs are now included as default with proper prefs, and it seems faster too.

    it's a good build. autocomplete forms are better and external links (from mail, etc...) open in tabs of the current window.

    safari is going to be good after all. shame on me for doubting. it remains to be seen if chimera will really be over-shadowed, at the moment it still conforms to standards better than safari. wait, i meant to say camino. still getting used to the name change:D

    Why is Apple putting out so many versions and not making it publicly available? Are they waiting for something, or will this go through the testing and come out with v70 for everyone else eventually?

    Very strange, cause they have to know that its relatively easy to get online.

    my guess on their thoughts, go something like this...

    build v60 was a good fundamental build

    with v64 things got a little more drastic. the evolution of tabs and autocomplete has taken many obvious steps. despite calling all safari build's beta. you could say v60 is a beta a build, like a significant beta, while v62 v64 and v67 are more like interim builds until those features being tested are complete.

    v60 was basic feature complete and v70(???) will be tab & autocomplete feature complete...

    my opinion anyway... and there are probably flaws in my thinking. oh well.

    200th post!

    someting else about this build with the tabs, they no longer show up as brushed metal using skins, which is good, since they were the only bit still brushed metal in previous builds. hating brushed metal with a passion, as i do. hate aqua too =)

    My god! I can't tell you how much of an improvement this is! I have been using it all afternoon, opening and closing tabs, accessing multiple websites in separate tabs etc. And doing all of this has also been MUCH faster than it was in v64, and not a single crash :D Now I think it can compete with Camino 0.7.

    I really think Apple should release every build they make, everyone knows and understands that this is a beta and will accept any flaws. Releasing regular updates will no doubt keep the interest of many more users in the quickly developing browser. Also having more users using and testing the latest builds will surly provide more useful feedback for the developers, what's the point in them receiving bug reports from an outdated beta?

    Nice job so far Apple, now all you need to do is let the rest of the world in on this build, C'MON! :rolleyes:

    i have safari v67, and it is way way better.
    i would be happy to share it, but
    1)i don't have a server to put it on
    2)apple would probably get very mad

    IMPORTANT!
    On this note, anyone who does have the file and the webspace, PLEASE do not post any links (either that u got from me or another source) to download v67, I don't want this thread getting closed down for breaking the forum rules. Thanks.

    Autofill still needs some work. Have not had any luck with it. Hopefully, that cookie fix is not in this version. Overall, looking good but does not work with Citibank as of yet.

    Did what I could.

    And I'm not having much luck with autofill either. Does the debug menu matter any, now that autofill is part of Safari's prefs? I have both autofill options activated under debug.

    Autofill is automatically on, I'm having some problems too but it works once you use it the 3ed time. :D
    I have access to de-bug menu, nothing too special.
