Apple Safari 4 Is Like Whole New Browser

By Jim Rapoza
In previous versions of Apple Safari, the Web browser was a capable if somewhat basic and utilitarian tool for surfing the Web. But with the release of Safari 4, Apple has gone in a very new direction, creating one of the most attractive and interactive browsers on the market today. Borrowing liberally from Apple's iTunes, Safari 4 provides visually attractive site tracking and searching tools that help users scan through their favorite sites. Along with its excellent standards support and other strong browser features, Apple's Safari 4 has gained considerable ground on its browser competitors.
