    So I just went to http://www.apple.com/safari/download and I see that the latest version is still the 3.0.3 BETA. Is this the same version that comes with Leopard? If it is, that would mean that Leopard does not ship with a production browser. Anyone else (other than me) think this is an issue?

    No.

    The Windows version is still very much a beta.


    PS - Have you used Gmail lately? It's over 3.5 years old and still in Beta.

    I don't think it's an issue I think apple just has to update their website and release Safari 3.

    No, Leopard comes with 3.04. We may see the final version concurrent with the OS X 10.4.11 service pack which is due any time now.

    Mac users will have to get Leopard to use Safari 3 final, though of course Windows users should get a final version sometime.
