I'll be honest. Apple's new Safari 4 really sucks. Freezes. Slow. So sad to see this from Apple. I'm not the only one, either.
Agree. It's very slow compared to Safari 3. But it's still beta? - Håkan Dahlström
As much as I love my iMAC I've always preferred Firefox over Safari. Now, if Roboform would just port their software. 1Password just doesn't do the job. - Brandon Hall
Is this based off the latest and greatest WebKit? If so, I'm really surprised. - WiseYoda (aka Patrick)
Have not experienced those problems on a MacBook Air. - Michael Osterman
It also causes other apps to stop working. I've gone back to Safari 3 on all of my macs. - Sufian Siddiqi
Isn´t it still beta ? People are spoiled because everyone through "beta" on every service and app for a while because it was hip. It really means not stable. Use a stable release (ie. 3) for critical work. Production releases from them are usually good. - ɯɥøq sɐɯoɥʇ
I love Safari 3 on Windows. - Alp
The tabs are really unusable. - Ben
Have not tried it out. But is it really that bad!! - Sujay
I can't think of anything Apple's made that's great in beta. Final release is always wonderful. Firefox betas may have spoiled us. - Mike Lewis
I really don't like Safari 4's implementation of tabs. Apart from the fact that they shouldn't be on top, they go all the way to the top edge of the window, which means you will probably accidentally switch tabs while trying to move the window. - Joey Gibson
To their credit they did make a little headway since 3.x on Windows. They can thank Google for showing them the way by making an instantly appealing and fast webkit browser. - Arawak
Never had a problem with it, I use it full time at home on a 3 year old MBP and my very old Dell PC - Caspar Aremi
I use it all the time without issue. Initially I didn't like the tabs but now really like the position. I can now have lots of tabs open without the crashing I experienced with Firefox. For a beta, it's working well for me. - Howard Keziah
Perhaps Apple should stop working on browsers. I think that area of consumer computer use is well covered by people who really know what they're doing. We, as an internet, need another browser on the net like we need more trolls. Just my $.02. That and $4.48 gets you Starbucks. - Dan: Bibrarian
Wondering if this is semi-intentional: Let's forget about the Web, folks, it's too unreliable, come to the App Store and buy that far more trustworthy MSM content. - John Blossom
I agree, sucks. I prefer Chrome on the PC but like having my bookmarks synced between my PCs so I use Firefox on the Mac and on the PC a lot as well. - Jim Graham
Yah Safari 4 is a major let down, and seems to screw up a LOT with flash based websites. Not impressed - Angus Burton
Jim: are you using a plugin to keep your firefox bookmarks synced between your Mac and PC? - Angus Burton
I actually disagree. I've been running the Beta since it came out and have now pretty much moved over to it full time. I usually run 3 windows, each with multiple tabs open all the time and it's been pretty stable and useable. It crashes every now and again, but with the Saft plugin, I get auto resume when I start it up again. Saft also gives you the option of moving the tabs back under the address bar. All in all, I've been very impressed with it. - Keith Bennett from Nambu
I've noticed pages often seem to be endlessly loading, but they function OK. I've had a few freezes as well. The latest Webkit seems more stable, although whenever it crashes the next time I start up it says to get rid of the plug-ins. The only thing I have going is Gears, so I guess that's a problem. My Gmail offline features works though. I don't see the big speed drop from Safari 3, and the latest Firefox ends up hogging all my resources on my Powerbook, so I end up using Safari 4 a lot. - Steve Wright
It beachballs for me consistently ...Safari 4 + Flash = Crash. Yes, that rhymes. - Bwana ☠
Wonder if it's time for a "Plug-Ins" spring cleaning!!!! Go to /Library/Internet Plug-ins/ and nuke away! - sean andersen
Safari 4 beta (with Flash turned off) hasn't crashed or hung for me yet in the last two months. - Victor Ganata
I've only had a few crashes with Safari 4 with the Webkit nightlies. It's pretty much rock solid and I've been running it since it was released. - Akiva
Still waiting for Chrome for mac here :P - Napolux from twhirl
im waiting for chrome on the linux.... - Chris Jackson
Funny, I was having so many problems with FireFox 3 I switched to Safari 4 and have been happy as a clam. - ChiliMac
You can download it again now, it´s updated (you´ll have to upgrade the OS to 10.5.7 first too). - ɯɥøq sɐɯoɥʇ
I find it to be very fast when its working but it does hang and freeze too often, especially on the "top site" view. - Justin Luey
I like how it randomly decides not to load a web page now and then. It's as if Safari 4 knows when I need a break. - A Gunny named Slickback
Yeah, it really doesn't like flash either. - Drew Lucas
Yeah I mean, it hangs up every 5 minutes or so, on simple small embeds! *sigh* - Drew Lucas
Flash remains a problem. Other than that Safari 4 Beta with Webkit is running fine for me. - Peter Kruit
Maybe that's why Safari 4 Webkit runs so well for me: I avoid Flash like I avoid shooting myself in the face with a bazooka. - Akiva
No kidding. What's up with that - I use Apple products cuz they rawk, if I wanted something to suck I'd go back to a PC and use MSFT products - Mary McKnight
Mary, something tells me you just really love those I'm a Mac/I'm a PC ads. - Akiva
What do you think of it now? - Byron McCollum
Keep in mind. That was Beta. - Drew Lucas from email
I'm using Safari 4 on Windows 7 and it's great - really, really flies, even compared to Chrome. And no crashes so far! - Ian Betteridge
Safari 4 seems to be running much smoother compared to Chrome and Mozilla Firefox on my system. In fact, I've already configured Safari 4 to be my new default Web browser! - Thomas Ward
Funny my experience has been positive. On the PC it runs well and is fast. I wasn't expecting much, now I may use it as much as Google Chrome, we'll see. - John Hardy

Guardian interview: Sara Waters - http://www.guardian.co.uk/books...
Ghosts, Gothic horror, lesbians, poltergeists, female hysteria... There are hidden depths to Sarah Waters. Here, the most 'remarkable storyteller since Daphne du Maurier' talks to Robert McCrum about effete boyfriends, postwar austerity and why she's kicked out the corsets in her latest novel - Caspar Aremi

Toyed with the idea of doing Star Trek tonight, but really do want to watch one of the original movies to set the scene. So I'll wait.
I wouldn't, to be honest, much better to see it fresh! It's very different to what's come before... - Caspar Aremi

Twitter Crowns Bit.ly As the King of Short Links; Here's What It Means http://www.readwriteweb.com/archive...
Analytics, analytics, analytics. Precisely - or should I say precise.ly (sorry). - Michael Turro from FriendFeed MT Plugin
Thanks for the nice write up on Bit.ly! btw, about the time this went to live, Nick over at Tweetmeme was showing me stats on Bit.ly doing the official passing over there of TinyURL. All in all, quite a successful Bit.ly day. Rex Bit.ly Community Mgr. - Rex from FriendFeed MT Plugin
Ari, FF did, invest in ff.im for own urls; now if only I could convince them to put it to full use, as in http://ff.im/2uBFP - ianf ⌘
URL shortening provides traffic tracking, but the introduction of such concentrated points of failure will come back to haunt us in a few years when the disappearance of a service takes millions of links down with it. I am not sure that the traffic tracking is worth it - I would rather let the web retain its integrity. Even within the current rule of the 140 characters format there are... more... - Jean-Marc Liotier from FriendFeed MT Plugin
Do any of these shorteners produce the same URL for duplicate links being shortened. Actually, WTH hasn't Twitter created it's own so that content would always stay integrated? And links could be cached a la Google search giving the links permanent results and Twitter search some juice. www.twit.tr? - Gregg Scott
@Gregg, when Twitter sells to Google (or MSFT), it'll be left to the buyer's engineers to figure this sort of thing out. I think people are still confusing Twitter with a technology company... :) (It's really all about social psychology and smart branding) - Alex Schleber
I've been using bit.ly manually on my corporate twitter posts for quite a while. By entering the API key into Splitweet, it would automatically shorten URLs that way and link it to my account. Is there any chance of posts shorted automatically via twitter.com being linked to your own bit.ly account, for easy tracking? Users could pop their API key into their twitter settings page. - Caspar Aremi from FriendFeed MT Plugin
