    They're pretty much exactly the same, except the Public Betas don't get updated as often.

    If you want more frequent beta releases, yes.

    I will stay with DPs - makes things more thrilling and I have 2 stable macs besides the MB Air.

    However - I do remember in the past when they rolled back features from DPs to PB if I am not mistaken.
    PBs are going to be 2 or 3 - DPs will be much more.

    Someone's posted that PB1 doesn't have the individual speaker controls on Safari tabs. If that's not just a problem for them(*), then it means at least one feature isn't in the PB so it could be worth (i.e. more fun) to stick with the Dev betas :)

    There's a beta supplemental update which has just hit the app store; make sure you're not getting confused with that.

    * Edited to add: Seems like an individual problem, according to the post below. Umm, well, one difference is that DB3 is version 15A216g ...

    right now the DP B3 build is slightly higher/newer than public beta. I wouldn't be surprised if they sync up going forward with the next update.

    it seems both got the update today that fixes 32bit stuff too.
