I like it, its very fast, very very fast. It doesn't work properly with my favorite website though, a problem with cookies. Check Spelling as you type does not appear to be on permanently which is a pain.

Safari and FTP
Authored by: macmath on Jan 07, '03 03:41:07PM

Downloads are fast too! I downloaded the X11 beta with Safari from my office at an university and it came in at an incredible 426 Kb/sec. So I turned around and downloaded it with Mozilla 1.2 and it came in at 93 Kb/sec. I did the same with X11 SDK and the speeds were 435 Kb/sec with Safari and 127 Kb/sec with Mozilla. I then went to VersionTracker and downloaded two files at random: File1 (AIM) 439 Kb/sec with Safari and 343 Kb/sec with Mozilla. File2 (ezemotion) 131 Kb/sec with Safari and 118 Kb/sec with Mozilla.

Also, if you use ftp in Safari, it will mount the site on your desktop just as if you were using the menubar 'Go:Connect to Server...' in the finder.

ftp://ftp.barebones.com gives you ftp.barebones.com mounted in the Finder.
