Safari 4 Catchall

Apple today announced that more than 11 million copies of Safari 4 have been downloaded in the first three days of its release, including more than six million downloads of Safari for Windows. Safari 4 is the world's fastest, most innovative browser and is built on the world's most advanced browser technologies including the new Nitro JavaScript engine that executes JavaScript nearly eight times faster than IE 8 and more than four times faster than Firefox 3. Safari quickly loads HTML web pages more than three times faster than IE 8 and three times faster than Firefox 3.

Safari 4 is a free download available from Apple's site.

I'm actually using it now as I make this post, and it really is noticeably faster than Firefox.

I find Apple's new obsession of slapping cover flow on everything pretty amusing.

Of course it looks nice and can be infinitely useful for something like searching through your history. Not many other changes though. A speed boost is nice, but I don't find that to be a mind-blowing "new" feature. I'd consider giving it a go, but i'm stuck on Ubuntu for reasons i'm starting to forget.
