Safari 7.0 streamlined and accelerated for OS X Mavericks

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Apple's new Safari 7.0 is faster, more efficient and sports streamlined new interface enhancements in OS X Mavericks.

Top Sites
Safari 7.0 Top Sites


In keeping with Apple's new direction for iOS 7 and OS X, the enhanced web browser strips Safari of some superfluous adornments. One example is Top Sites, which now presents simple thumbnails of previously visited as squares (above), rather than wide, curved images with a faux floor reflection.

Users now have a preference of displaying up to two dozen images on the Top Sites page, and pinning or rearranging the squares no longer requires hitting an Edit button; simply mousing over an image displays its editing controls.

Goodbye, Coverflow



Another rarely useful visualization is also gone in Safari 7.0 (but not from OS X Mavericks' new Finder): a Coverflow display of cached websites in History or Bookmarks, including the Favorites Bar that appears above tabs (currently referred to as the "Bookmarks Bar").

Bookmarks
Safari 7.0 Bookmarks


Instead, History simply shows a simple, hierarchical list of your browsing history. Bookmarks is also greatly simplified, now depicting three types of links; the first is your standard Bookmarks (with a preview rather than a duplicate set of listings and Coverflow imagery, above).

Reading List magazine



The second set is your cross-device, iCloud synced Reading List. To catch up on your saved articles (which you can add to the list via the Share button) simply click on on a page to view it either on the standard page, or via Reader in a simplified, no distraction environment.

When you scroll to the bottom of a Reading List article, the next item in your list follows it, allowing you a magazine like experience even more similar to Instapaper.

The third is a new feature: Shared Links. This combs through the URLs of social networks you've configured your Mac to follow (currently supporting Twitter and LinkedIn) to present a social bookmark list (below).

Shared Links
Safari 7.0 Shared Links


Like your own personal Reading List, you can quickly scan through the webpages shared by users you follow, optionally using Reader, with each article flowing into the next.

At the top of each page is a banner that shows who shared it, what they commented about it, along with a button you can use to retweet it to your followers (above).

Faster and more efficient



Safari 7.0 also benefits from a year of WebKit development, including a new "Nitro Tiered JIT" (Nitro is Apple's JavaScript engine, and the tiered Just In Time compiler is a mechanism to efficiently decide how best to execute code when loading web pages, using one of its optimized alternative processes).

When you perform a search in Safari 7.0 via the Smart Search bar, it immediately begins loading the suggested top hit in the background before you even chose it, resulting in a snappy, responsive feel. You can turn this preloading off, and even turn off the instant search engine suggestions as you type a search query.

Safari also waits to load Internet plugins (ahem, "Adobe Flash animations") until you click, similar to the functionality of Click To Flash.

This saves battery life so the browser isn't constantly loading and rendering lots of inefficient animations, ads and other content unless you opt to actually see this stuff. As a side note, this will be brutal to advertisers who haven't yet migrated from Flash to HTML5.

Safari also benefits from other battery saving initiatives in OS X Mavericks designed to idle the processing of content that isn't visible (or playing desired content such as background music).

As a result of these various optimizations, Safari is not just significantly faster than Chrome and Firefox in both general SunSpider and task-oriented JSBench tests, but also delivers a noticeable edge in CPU energy efficiency (and therefore battery life) and uses much less memory at the same time.

Safari 7 also plugs into other enhancements of OS X Mavericks, including iCloud Keychains for secure storage of not just passwords, but also credit card information (iCloud Keychain sync uses multiple factor authentication), and also now supports web site push notifications, so you can be updated on events you select (such as online auctions, or web-based messaging systems).

Things I don't like:
  • History isn't selectable anywhere but the Menu Bar (might just be a bug).
  • Tab View is still completely and utterly worthless.
  • Activity window seems to be gone for good.

Things I like:
  • Ludicrous speed.
  • Smooth animations.
  • Built-in Click2Flash-style Flash stopper.
  • The look of Top Sites.

Bugs:
  • Dragging out images hangs (and if dragged to an application in the Dock, crashes Safari and hangs the Dock).
  • Bookmarks button doesn't toggle bookmark view.

Not sure if these tests are relevant to what Apple says speed is:

Chrome still beats Safari. I use Safari, but just need to know why Chrome is better at this test suite.

It's true.
I have Mavericks DP1 installed on my Core2Duo hackintosh and there is a *huge* difference in performance between Safari 6 and 7 (I also have ML installed on another HD as my main release). This is not the usual "snappy" thing. The difference is very real. BTW, it is also true when comparing Mavericks to ML as a whole. Much faster, much more responsive and more productive (full screen apps multi monitor behaviour).
I have the impression that Mavericks is going to be a huge release, quality wise - reminiscent of Tiger.

I remember when Apple streamlined and enhanced Safari by removing built in support for RSS.
That was awesome!

The only thing that matters is whether or not this new Safari is faster than Chrome. If it is, I'll switch back but right now it's no contest.

Are they testing Safari 7 or Safari 6?

I love the new idle feature. I want all the shit in the background tabs to stop.

The exceptions would be loading the content, if I already clicked to load/play it.

Where can you even find results for that? It won't show me anything but my own (2736).

Ah, ran it again and got 2829. This time I didn't switch to any other tabs or Spaces while it was running. Interesting.

Oh, Chrome has an advantage because the test involves WebM, which no self-respecting browser would support in the first place.

for me... it's the memory issue.  I typically have 20+ tabs and 4+ windows running on my 8GB 2008MBP (yeah yeah, it's sometimes a curse to buy such damn fine hardware;-)).   Safari and it's helper apps will eat up a whole bunch of memory (especially if you have some privacy extensions added... e.g. adBlock, CookieStumbler, DisConnect), and you have some auto-updating webpages (I'm looking at you google News!), it's not unusual for the safari suite to take up 2+GB of memory, and the kernel swell to a GB.

 

If Safari (and Mavericks) can keep memory utilization down, I'm  ecstatic (especially because I'm definitely tasting one of those 8gb MBAs after my next paycheck).

I'm hoping the individual processes will help too (swapping out undisplayed windows, etc), but I can't help but think in place memory compression (reducing the times and the amounts of swapping thereof) is a major overall win 

 

Does anyone have a decent assessment of the memory footprint now?  Say running a couple flash based videos and Ajax some AJAX/local storage laden pages?

I find these kind of comments ludicrous.  The difference between the fastest browser and the slowest browser is always just a second or so, often it's just some portion of a second.  

 

It's far more reasonable to choose one's browser based on features and ease of use, or because it's fit to some particular purpose than it is to pick it because you *must* have the fastest browser.  

 

Like most tech workers, I use all the big three browsers (Safari, Chrome and Firefox), all day every day and usually have them running all at once because some tasks are better isolated in a separate browser.  When I switch back and forth, the difference between one and the other in terms of speed is negligible.  As long as you have a fairly up to date browser running on a fairly up to date computer, to say that one is better than the other because of a few microseconds of time is just silly.  

 

Even when I have to use something awful on some old hunk-o-junk laptop that someone lends me, the "glacial" speed is mostly an illusion based on comparative experience.  What seems like "forever" is really just a few seconds.

That's not a standard test of any sort.  I think they just made most of it up.  I quit after the first minute when it said that my browser (Safari 6), didn't even support parts of it, which is patently ridiculous.

Attached is a screenshot from my desktop. I'm running 10.9 DP1, Safari 7 and Activity Monitor. On Safari I have Adblock plus and JavaScript blocker installed.
You can see in the Activity Monitor the memory usage of Safari.
My mackintosh specs are nothing special:
Core2Duo Quad CPU @ 2.4GHz
8 GB DDR2 RAM
Regular Hard Disk
Nvidia 512MB VRAM video card

Opened tabs: Appleinsider, 2 1080HD youtube videos, 1 720HD youtube video, Gmail, Facebook and CNN.com.
All in all it is using 977.8MB RAM

I'm on 10.8.4.  Just updated.  Safari STILL judders on the corner pulling to make the window bigger.  It's the only app that seems to do this.

I hope so.

 

I can't wait for it, if this is the case.

 

With all the features added in Lion/Mountain....I couldn't help but feel we needed to get back to some 'efficiency' and optimisation of the OS again.  Sounds like it's going to be a hard core release.  Refinement.  But also under the hood as well.

If it was that close AT ALL, I wouldn't bother switching. Chrome is significantly faster on my computer (2010 Macbook Pro) than Safari. Anywhere from 2-5 seconds faster for each page load. That's a pretty good amount of time when I sit down to read a few articles and catch up on my news around the web.

True that. Benchmarks are just one metric of many when assessing user impact. Chewing through javascript doesn't do much good if the UI thread suffers.

it's too bad I really rely on Chrome's bookmark syncing. I use Bookmarks on 10 or so devices, laptops, desktops, tablets, phone, set-tops and a few dual booting. The only thing that really gets my bookmarks everywhere is Chrome.

Just a few things about the performance.

This is tested on 64bit, where Chrome and Firefox has spend less time on tuning.
The Firefox results were based before their New Baseline and Tuned IonMonkey works. Which is scheduled on Version 22. The tested version was Version 21.

But it is good Safari finally makes big jump in performance. As they have been lacking in that department. Cant wait to see when it is finally shipped. Chrome has been on top for nearly 3 - 4 years. And It was only recently Firefox make a come back.

I'm on Firefox 22.

 

 

 

 

So "peacekeeper" takes away points from Safari over WebGL and WebM and from Firefox over H.264.

 

As soon as an "unsupported" test comes up it indicates inherent bias.

 

I do not want Chrome even though they advertise it on Australian TV, I choose Google No!

 

Why are Google paying for TV ads for something that is "free"?

 

The "real" price may be too high.

I'm getting the impression this will be a huge release. I've been following WWDC when I can and frankly it is a major overhaul. For one it looks like the transition to LLVM/CLang is complete. XCode has went through a major refactoring with lots of new tools and capabilities. It looks like Apple has put these new tools to work optimizing much of Mac OS/X. As such Mac OS/X should be a huge advance for pro users as well as any user that works with laptops that are battery powered.

There are some concerns I have, especially with the power saving feature for background apps. I think Apple is off on the wrong foot here in that the default behavior seems to be to suspend background apps. This will suck for old software as often you want these apps running in background. To have to manually manage this feature seems to be very un Apple like.

As far as the current release I don't think it is the features per say that have made Mountain Lion sluggish but rather some poor coding. I run an old machine that needs more RAM and it often comes to a crawl running Safari when really it shouldn't. Lets face it Safari isn't rocket science, it is a web browser, it shouldn't grab GB of RAM for no reason. It really looks like Apple is addressing this issue in Mavericks along with several other issues that have made Safari a bit of a hog.

In any event I urge anyone that is interested in the coming technologies to gain access to the WWDC videos. Some are a bit technical but those can be ignored. You will get the sense though that contrary to popular myth, Apple isn't standing still. In fact it is rather the opposite, it really looks like Apple is actually improving its OS, making it even more competitive than the alternatives.

To put it bluntly this WWDC seems to be more impressive than the last couple for Mac users.

What is judders?

As for Safari, they may have to redraw the screen when it gets resized, this is probably expensive for HTML/CSS.

I found it annoying when they darkened the line because it makes me think I haven't dragged the window up high enough. I wish they'd make the menu solid white too.

I think Memory Pressure is going to scare people - they'll be on to tech support saying their memory pressure is really high. Memory Capacity or Usage would have been fine.

Thanks for replying to the post, as always.

 

Yes.  I keep hearing how 'fast' Safari is at all this Java stuff and it renders pages fast enough, sure.  Yet, on the 'user thread' ie the interface window...when you try to resize a Safari window it's really, really choppy.  Jerks.  Stop...pauses then appears where I dragged it two.  Corner re-sizing on the windows is jerrrrrkyyyy.

 

'Choppy.'  Not 'teh snappy...'

 

It's frustrating.  No other app behaves this way.  Has to be a software optimisation problem in Safari.  

 

So I hope to the Lord above Safari 7 solves that.

 

?

Hmm.

 

Yes.

 

Though, these aren't the days of memory starved, low cpu non gpu machines.  You'd think Apple would be on top of Window drawing in a web browser.  At least Saf' 7 offers hope that it will get resolved.

 

Sounds like a 'teh snappy' is coming for Saf' and the entire system?

 

Just frustrating being on a top of the line system and windows chop...thought we left that kind of thing behind in 10.0 Beta...in fact...was it this bad in Snow Leopard?

That menu bar is only consistent with the Macbook Air's silver screen border. For everything else, there's MenuBarFilter.

Is there any way to get the kind of visual bookmarks organization you can make in the Chrome extension "Speed Dial"?

 

This is my only ongoing big pet peeve with Safari.

Assuming Top Sites doesn't suit your fancy, I would suggest setting your homepage to a local html file that you create, customized to that end.
