There is no modification to Safari or the System
Authored by: petersconsult on Jun 12, '09 05:38:10AM

I just wanted to stress the fact that, contrary to one of the posts above, i wrote these instructions specifically to not over-write the Final Safari app.

As far as i can tell, there is no difference whatsoever, which is pretty logical since the Safari app is really just a front-end for the components that really do the work.
I tried all the tests i could think of, including the acid3 test, and they all turn up the exact same results (with the expected standard deviation). Particularly acid3: they complete with the same 100%, but also with the same umber of attempts and the same completion time.

What's more, when Flash misbehaves, it does so in the same manner in both..

Cheers!

PS: i also dream the impossible dream of a world where 'tabs on top' humans and their 'tabs that take the whole screen' ancestors can live in peace and harmony, thanks to an Aqua checkmark in the land of Prefernces...

This is all fine and good until updates are released later for security fixes and other tweaks that Apple tends to do. These do ultimately end up affecting the "front-end" interface and not just the system installed engine and components.

But thanks for the temporary reprieve.

Also - do you or anyone know where we can get a copy of the last Beta - I may have trashed mine?
