Well......

Sorry guys, Chimera still loads my favorite sites faster. Still not too happy with it.

And the Wells Fargo Bank thing is pretty bizarre, if you ask me.

Definite improvement, although it still has some issues. Hotmail works better than with .51, but it's still a little quirky.

No tabbed browsing yet. Hopefully it won't take too long before that option is oncorporated.

anyone figure out?????

Has anyone figured out how to turn off web address autocomplete. This is one of the most annoying features. At least everyone else except apple offeres this option in there browsers. I would have thought that it would be easier to write safari without autocomplete rather than include it. Apple please give me the option to turns this off.

<edit> d'oh.. quoted the wrong post.. Meant to quote the one about the auto-complete URL feature.. really annoying... </edit>



I wholeheartedly agree.. This is easily the worst feature of Safari...

On another note, it seems to handle Java a little bit better, but I still can't properly play Monopoly at http://www.playsite.com.

I also still have trouble with sites with expired security certificates.

Dock

Hotmail works, that's good. But I am having a new problem, with the dock. I drag a copy of the new safari over to the dock to add it and it appears. Then when I click on the icon there, a new icon appears at the end of the dock, doubling the space and making everything else smaller.

Anyone else with this problem? Am I just doing something stupid-like?

Apple's own site...

I don't know if it's fixed yet (I haven't been home to download the update)... but did anyone notice that with Apple's OWN site, if you had a large monitor and opened the browser window, the buttons at the top would not be centered with the text and graphics in the main part of the window, but would get more and more off the further the window was opened up?

Wow... you'd think their own site would be the one that looked the absolute best with their own browser.

I love Apple, but this surprised me.

flash playback speed

I'm doing some test about flash playback speed. This is what I get on my TiBook667

old safari V50: 10 fps
new safari V60: 25 fps
chimera : 22.88 fps
ie 5.22: 22.70 to 23.1 (not absolutly steady)
ns 7.0: 23.8 fps

okay the new safari is the fastest browser when it comes to flash playback.

interessting: if you move a browserwindow with a playing flashmovie, the movie doesn't stop in chimera and safari.

Solves my issues...

OK...I'm now switching to Safari. I had several important sites that previously would not load in Safari. This update has solved that, so I am making the switch and dumping IE.

I trust that Safari will only improve from here. The absolute key, whatever else is added/removed from a browser, is a universal ability to load and view pages. Absent this, none of the other features matter.

Good update.

Is anyone else finding that the lines on macrumors no longer seem to line up?
