    Why does the beta have the same brushed metal look?

    I thought it was over?

    I think Jobs meant brushed metal is gone from the general UI, not apps - never understood why it was the finder anyway...

    I'm thinking when running under 10.4, its brushed, otherwise not?

    Second that. My understanding is that Safari calls a standard set of OS widgets. This means that in Tiger, it will receive the brushed metal information from the OS, and in Leopard it will get the grey version.

    Durr, Brushed Metal will be gone from everything in Leopard. Does not apply to Tiger, though.

    But in this screenshot, at the top, it is definitely tiger. It has a solid menu-bar and the current style dock, and no spaces, time machine etc. in the dock.

    This screenshot definitely has a non-brushed metal interface (in the pictures at the top of the screen).

    How does the iTunes non-brushed metal look work then?

    Just a press image mockup probably.

    It has a non-standard interface built into the app. iTunes has always been like that. And the scroll bars are still different, too... I wonder if we will see iTunes 7 style scroll bars in Leopard as an Appearance option.

    Pretty much. In Interface Builder, there's a checkbox with which you specify a Textured window. If checked, the window (in 10.4) is brushed metal, if not, it's 'pinstripe'.

    I don't have the 10.5 dev tools, but it'll be interesting to see if Apple even offer a choice in Leopard.

    Personally, given that OSX windows tend to have a lot of title bar/toolbar/status bar/border space, I think that's an awful lot of bland gray to have onscreen at once. I'd rather have options. :eek:

    (safari (3.0) Tiger)

    I Totally Agree With You On The Same Look. Also, I'd Thought Safari (3.0) Was Going To Be Reserved For Mac OS X (10.5) "Leopard". This Version Is Really Unstable Because It Crashes Alot. I Just Hope That When Mac OS X (10.4.10) Update Gets Out It'll Be Cleaning-Up The Bugs Leftover.

    I'm in love with Safari 3 right now, I switched from 2 to Camino (which is awesome) but having used the beta of Safari 3 and seeing just how fast and smooth it is, I switched back, fickle!! :D

    I'm not getting any of the trouble lots of you seem to be complaining about, lots of Windows Users are having terrible trouble ( not just because they're stubborn Windows Users) and I hope it improves for you guys soon!

    As for the brushed metal, I think they don't want to make it 'Leopard' whilst its still in Tiger, if that makes sense, there's no Webclip either, its just Safari 2 on speed with some under the hood improvements, we have to pay $129 for the eyecandy. Thanks Apple! :rolleyes:

    Still brushed metal for the time being. When Leopard comes out it will probably go by-by. The more I use Safari 3 the more I love it! :D :)

    Yes, this means all of your ugly brushed metal apps in tiger will be the new style in Leopard

    Im just upset that my contacts list does not show up in gmail =(

    I assume that has to do with shoddy AJAX support. Hopefully it works in the final release. Its the only reason that I keep other browsers. Anyone have any info about this?

    I've got to admit that I'm pretty impressed with Safari 3 so far, excluding a few things. I haven't had any problems with the browser itself, but it's still lacking a few features I love. For one, I've always wished I could specify that I want links to always open in new tabs as opposed to having to Command-click to get them to do so. Also, I wish I could use aliases like in Firefox or Camino--by typing in the alias (name) of a bookmark I've set, it directs me to the web site specified by that alias in my bookmarks.

    Example: Type MR in the address bar and it would take you to macrumors.com, assuming that you've got the appropriate bookmark.

    If anyone knows of a plugin for this, it'd be more than enough to make me switch to Safari full-time again. I've looked long and hard without any results. Safari 3 is -really- fast. I don't have brushed metal either, I'm using a unified Illuminous GUI (MyTenFive).

    The previous Leopard beta looked like that.

    Why Are You Capitalizing Everything?

    I downloaded the Beta... love the tab moving... but, 1) wont load a plugin (and tells me everything time I open the app) 2) it doesnt load a homepage


    so it got uninstalled and I'm back to the old Safari... meh!
