Safari Beta 2 released
Authored by: wtmcgee on Apr 14, '03 10:38:02AM

so far, this thing flies. i have only 2 minor complaints so far:

tab switching is kind of slow at times, even with only 2 or 3
tabs open.

i'm still waiting for them to get the 'check spelling as you
type' pref to stick between sessions.

other than that, this browser is truly amazing. loads pages
lightning quick,looks great, and the feature set is starting
to set it at par with the other big time browsers for mac.

that's no problem of safari or the tab handlnig, it's a problem of the gui. I also noticed that it's very very slowly. then I switched off the brushed metal look, so that safari uses the default aqua theme or - on my mac - the very fast platinum theme. after this the tab handling of safari is *extremely* fast. i click on the tab and before releasing the mouse the tab is loading and the page displeyd. i.e. *immediately*.

and btw: using the brushed metal theme on a web browser violates apple human interface guidelines.
