How to use pacifist to get Safari 4 Beta
Authored by: gabester on Jul 14, '09 02:04:06PM

I haven't played with Pacifist a lot, so I had to fiddle a bit. This might help others who want tabs on top and were stymied, as I was, after opening the Safari 4 Beta package in Pacifist and having the install and extract functions fail to produce meaningful results (I did this for Leopard but the steps are likely the same for Tiger):

1. Open the Safari 4 Beta package from the disk image.
2. Switch to the Resources tab.
3. Expand the Safari4.0BetaLeo.pkg triangle, then select the nested Safari4.0BetaLeo.pkg and expand it as well.
4. Select and extract the Payload file to your target destination.
5. Open the Payload file from the target destination.
6. Expand the Applications contents, select, then extract that to an intermediate location that does not contain your Safari 4 release install.
7. Go to the intermediate location of your Safari 4 Beta extraction and rename it to or something similar to differentiate it from your release install of Safari so that you don't accidentally overwrite the release install in Applications. I'm keeping mine in ~/Applications but your preferences may vary!
