hehe i knew it. i didnt want to post anything cuz it was all speculation. this info first appeared in the comments of dave hyatts blog. no one knew whether or not to take it as truth and of course dave neither confirmed nor denied. looks like thinksecret has gotten a real scoop.

great find; tabs are especially usefull to users with ibooks and the small powerbook because it really helps you browse alot of content on a small screen. I hope they develop a good keystroke to move between the tabs. I feel that Chimera still lacks this.

Yeah, once we download the version Apple wants the masses to have, apply all the hacks and open all the hidden/debug features - it'll be the way it should've been on Day 1.

From ThinkGeek.com:

Use it as an interjection or a celebratory statement! As in...'Hey! I just upgraded my 56k modem to 1.1 SDSL. w00t! w00t!'. Works every time. True it's an independent clause, but really the best clauses are always independent. w00t.

w00t belongs to gamers the world over. It seems to have been derived from the obselete 'whoot' which essentially is another way to say 'hoot' which itself is a shout or derisive laugh. But others maintain that w00t is the sound several players make while jumping like bunnies in Quake III. Still others want you to believe that it comes from the phrase 'wow loot' used in multiplayer RPGs many moons ago. Fiction or fact? I suppose you'll just have to decide what 'w00t!' means to you...

I assumed it was only speculation, good stuff . I think we'll see 1.0 sooner than later

There's more than tabs, here.

I have been developing CSS right sites recently to test Safari's rendering engine and at the moment, while it is very good, it isn't quite as good as Gecko with CSS. All the normal stuff works fine, but when you throw in tons of <div>s and <span>s with margins/borders/padding/background/position/float/etc. it sometimes doesn't come out right.

Of course, nothing is perfect and I appreciate the challenge of getting all this CSS to render correctly.

I remember David Hyatt posting that he zapped a lot of CSS bugs. I'm anxious to see them.

[edit: the point doesn't really shine through here... basically I'm saying that it isn't interface alone that warrents a total switch. BTW, Safari is my primary browser anyway]

- RMG

Note: The CSS in question is valid and the HTML in which it is embedded is XHTML 1.1 valid...

Ha ha haaa!
While this is a welcome feature, it probably won't make me switch just yet. I'm waiting for keychain storage of logins in Safari... I sure hope they implement it someday!

Near a Mac since 1993.
Alright!
Safari is my default browser anyhow and this should make it even better!
Safari is my default browser for this reason: You can always expect Apple to improve things. One step at a time and easily through Software Update things become better on this side of the fence!

Assuming that day 1 was sometime in April (or later, since they wouldn't have been getting bug reports) in your alternate reality. It's a BETA. Sheesh...

w00t! The tabs work really well...

The only flaw noted in my minute or so of testing is that after 10 tabs, they go off the edge of the browser. Luckily, this is irrelevant for me.

It's also really fast.

shift-apple-arrow (from what i hear;)

As to the poster, Safari doesn't *have* autofill, meerly a menu option for forms and ThinkSecret doesn't mention autofill being a feature yet either. But I guess it's a done deal regardless.

i haven't spent much time using tabs, but it seems a lot like how windows allows you to minimize multiple windows within a single frame. is it the same idea?

Where is this 'debug' menu?? :confused:

I know its not out yet...but is that menu new in the next version? Or am I just a little slow?
