    Mozilla did a great leap forward in their Javascript engine. I hope Webkit Catches up as well.



    I'm more concerned about getting a stable Firefox. Maybe the problem is with JS stuff, but I don't like having to restart the program every few days because it quits loading images or pages. I've begun to use Safari a little more as a result.

    Last I checked, there were a few ad blocking add-ons for Safari. Have they all gone away?

    As a web designer, I absolutely love the pace set by Safari.



    I never thought I would be wishing the folks over at Mozilla could keep up.



    Now all the community needs to do is find the right people in Microsoft, threaten them suitably, and get Internet Explorer's team to kick it up a notch. At least they've made fair improvements since they started on IE7.

    Think I can't read? Just thought I would help somebody if they really wanted to do it. Actually it only takes a few seconds.



    And for your information, it is probably not a good idea to make sorting simple.



    When Microsoft IE first featured sorting with a simple click, it was highly praised. That is until it was realized that once done, there was no way to unsort the list. Since most users prioritize their Bookmarks, sorting them alphabetically soon became a feature that drew more criticism than it was worth.

    There is a program for Safari that allows you to alphabetize your bookmarks by folder, if you wanted to. The name is SafariSorter.



    Another is Bookdog.



    SafariSorter is pretty good. I haven't used Bookdog.



    SS is free, and Bkdg is shareware.



    If this link will work, it's the link to both in VersionTracker.

    Sweet, I thought that the new Safari JS engine is faster then the upcoming FF JS engine?

    The new version of the popular web browser bakes in a slew of new features for developers, including a new "develop" menu, redesigned Web Inspector, integrated JavaScript debugger, and JavaScript profiler.



    this sounds interesting though, redesigned develop menu? I wonder what is the enhancements.



    I seriously hope Apple will release some sort of IDE or a feature similar to Interface Builder to use with SproutCore. If Apple does this, expect to see some cool web apps by next year.

    Now that IE8.0 will default to standards-compliant, what we really need to do is convince the idiots over at Microsoft to push out 8.0 on the automatic update system! Well, that or have someone hack the windows update system so it sends a script to every windows computer that deletes old versions of IE and replaces them with Firefox!

    I stopped reading what Microsoft to say about the subject about the twentieth time I heard them whining about 'breaking the internet'.



    I might sacrifice a goat to them or something if they can finally get the box model down 100% with IE8. That would give me a warm fuzzy feeling. I need to go back and read where the story left off with their nonsense about freezing rendering engines unless web designers specifically opt in/out. I wish they'd just let all the broken sites break...



    Anyway, this has been whined about through hundreds of pages on other forums.



    If IE died and was replaced with Firefox my job satisfaction would go up considerably.

    So back to my original question.



    it may be nice if you could even do a google search yourself. But i did it for you anyway.

    I am not sure if this trace routine can be implemented in Webkit. Since it promise to bring performance close to native speed.

    I'm glad to see OS X continue to improve. I use it nearly every day, would not like to go back to Windows or Linux.

    Fixed the ugly buttons for web clippings.



    Apple used to have Aqua buttons on a purple background which looked UGLY!



    Now they have fixed this? purple buttons on a purple background.



    Interestingly the purple button pulsates as well.



    Is this style of recessed button (not necessarily in purple) a sign of things to come from the UI?

    Unfortunately many websites are built around IE's "standards" so no matter how genius Safari, Firefox or any of the other browser develop it's still the Microsoft bottleneck in place.

    I just snapped this from the latest version of Safari.
