Safari 4.0, slick and fast

Apple pushed out an update earlier this week, bringing mostly security enhancements and bug fixes to Mac OS X. Included in the update to Mac OS X 10.5.7 is the final version of Safari 4.0, the Apple developed web browser based on Webkit.

At first glance, there are some minor cosmetic changes to the interface. But starting to surf with Safari 4.0, I immediately appreciated just how fast it has become.

If Apple applies the same level of refinements to the OS as they have with this recent update, then 10.6 Snow Leopard is going to be amazing even without any major new features.
