    Hey everyone. Do you want a pie-chart loading thing instead of the blue bar? Well, just go into Terminal (Spotlight > Terminal) and type in:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugUsePieProgressIndicator -bool true

    And then press return. Quit Terminal. And quit Safari 3 Beta if you're in it. When you reopen the program the loading thing should not be the blue bar of progress anymore, but rather a pie chart that fills in as the page loads.

    There you go, in case you want to see before using it.

    I got this news from RobotSpacer on ign.com's forums, just want everyone to know that this is not my discovery.

    Nice find, looks better than the blue bar at least.

    I like the blue bar...I even got a FF extension when I used it to be as similar as possible...

    EDIT: I just changed true to false and Safari is faster again

    Agreed! I really like the integrated progess bar. Now, if only Camino had it too.....
