I'm not quite sure I understand "Safari." Is it a reference to the song "Surfin' Safari" or something else?

I think Safari makes a big metaphor. It calls the internet a jungle, and tour this jungle by going on a safari (through the browser). Get it?

The "safari" thing immediately hit home with me. You're out and about, exploring, searching, tracking things down, etc.

Seems perfect.

But the "surfin' safari" thing is kinda cute too. Didn't think about that. If they make a commercial about it, they've already got their song chosen!

Paging Brian Wilson?

I don't care what you call it -- but so far I'm really impressed. Its page render speed is blazingly fast, and despite comments elsewhere to the contrary, I find its download speeds to be acceptable. I quite like the GUI too, and so far haven't found a site that I need to use that doesn't work yet, so clearly its Java & JavaScript support works pretty well!

I am having a small problem with Safari. On my TiBook, it did import all my Exploder favorites upon first run, but on my wife's iBook, it only imported the Toolbar Favorites. Both computers running 10.2.3.

I already tried deleting it's preferences twice to no avail. Any clues?

Other than that, Safari does indeed ROCK! Bye bye Internet Exploder.

You'd think they would have at least checked versiontracker once over the past year to make sure it rendered properly...

I'm SO glad it's not iBrowse or something. Apple used to have only their digital hub applications be iApps (iMovie, iTunes, iPhoto, iDVD) while their other applications didn't have the i (Mail, Address Book, Text Edit, AppleWorks). They broke consistency with iCal and iChat, which really aren't part of the digital hub. You could stretch it and say iCal is a digital hub application because you can sync calendars with your phone, but that applies more to iSync. Since they broke their consistency, people expected them to do it over and over again. But they didn't. Keynote isn't in the digital hub, it's not an iApp. Safari isn't in the digital hub either. It's a good name. As soon as I heard it I knew exactly what it was and I liked it.

How about names for the (probably) upcoming Office competitors? We already have Keynote against PowerPoint. Imagine if they were also iApps: iWrite, iWord or iType for a word processor, and iSpread :eek: for the spreadsheet (oh my god is there any worse name than iSpread?!). As usual, Apple will think up some really cool non-iNames for them

ALSO! safari is a safe way to look at the jungle (the internet) AND THUS! popup blocking/hopefully ad blocking this is going to get apple some good publicity consumer side when this thing gets going.
I think ichat /ical can have the i because maybe JUST MAYBE
i IS FOR INTERGRATION
ahh im a genius, unless someones guessed that already, or they said when they introduced ilife or something

The metaphor doesn't hold at all - so the browser is really a hunt for the browser's operating system (Jaguar) ? Or is it looking for the Next Great Beast - Panther ?

Consistency hasn't been Apple's strong point after the return of Jobs....

Absolutely.

I'm hoping and praying that "iLife" represents the last gasp of the iWhatever naming strategy, software productwise.

Time to move on. "Safari" is great.

Safari seems an appropriate name.

Navigator and Explorer worked off of a vast ocean metaphore. This was excellent when the internet was new and sparse. You were going around the world to visit something new. The voyage took you through uncharted, but more importantly, unpopulated expanses of ocean.

Now that the internet is bursting at the seams, 'Safari' alludes to a more appropriate analogy. The internet is more like a thriving, populated, and untamed wilderness through which you must pick your way.

Or then again, maybe it just sounded good to the Apple-ites?

I think the Safari icon echos too much of Netscape's icon. Shoulda been this...

The issue with VersionTracker's front page has been addressed. The page is actually malformed, and we had to improve our error handling code to deal with the malformation. (A stray div wrapping random table cells inside a table.) Note that this was not a bug in Konqueror but was a regression in Safari only.

what's wrong with chimera's history seen by side?

i prefer tabs. and i like more the bookmark system of chimera (by side), i had an overdose of the brushed metal (not only safari, also ichat &gt; adium) and the history tab exists if you havent noticed it yet... at least the boosted chimera is faster so i'm one of those who didn't go nuts about safari.

The minute I clicked on to the Apple page post MWSF keynote here in Australia and saw the button for Safari I knew straight away it was their iBrowser. I think the name is very suitable indeed for internet. For me when I use the net I am always 'Hunting' and 'Exploring'.

Love the name, love the app!
