    Safari 5 definitely sounds interesting. I hate it in Windows though.

    Right on! Sounds good. Man, Monday is gonna be freaking epic. Well if there's gonna be Bing support for Safari, then I'm sure we can see Bing support for Safari Mobile. I won't be using it though. I really hope 10.6.4's graphics drivers boost my performance in Steam.

    Read about this over at Appleinsider earlier today. Is it coming, or is it rumored to be coming?

    I'm interested to see that. I hope it's better than Safari's or Mail's current implementation of RSS feeds.

    I wonder what the new Xcode will do. All of this is for sure? I wonder if there will be anymore surprises at all.

    Extensions?

    What extensions do you "need"? I have Ad Block and FlashBlock on Safari. Are you not looking hard enough?

    If everything rumored to be at WWDC actually happens, it's gonna be a great show.

    Xcode? Say it isn't so! A developer tool at WWDC...too good to be true. I bet the new features only matter for iPhone, though. :D

    Disappointing. It doesn't say anything about security. That should be the #1 priority in any web browser right now.

    I want only one thing in Safari: auto close Downloads window.

    And no, I don't wanna use third-party plug-ins.

    Just a small want, but get rid of that spinning bezel in Safari 4 when the page is loading, and go back to the loading address bar in Safari 3, or surprise us with something better.

    Yes, Apple, please create a library of second rate hack addons like Chrome. CHROMEZ ROXORZ. Seriously, gag me with a spoon.

    If you want competent addons use Firefox. No other browsers can match them in that regard.

    Apple should be focusing on improving performance and stability. Also bring back the blue progress bar, please.

    I hope XCode 4 has at least:
    * more refactoring tools
    * hassle free debugging of unit tests
    * optimize #imports functionality ( like Eclipse )
    * Quick Fix ( like in Eclipse )
    * less buggy!
    * A decent plugin manager - for extensions
    * Configurable code templates within XCode
    * generate protocol methods in implementing class
