Holy Jesus, Safari kicks so much performance ass it's sick.  I've been literally laughing while watching it process huge amounts of client-side scripting.  This is Safari for Windows though, so I would imagine it's at least as good or perhaps better on a Mac. 

The whole universe knows I'm no fan of closed source, IP maximalists and the like.  But Credit where credit is due.  The latest Safari is insanely fast, beautiful to look at and my new default browser.  Good job Apple  Applause

Closed source? Isn't Safari basically WebKit?

Apple certainly leverages open source but closes it up for release and other modifications.  Unless I'm mistaken I don't know where you can get the actual source code for Safari 4.0.4, for example.  Am I incorrect here?  I really do get a fun kick out of building open source software myself.  When I can make a project myself is when it's open source in my book

You're right.. they are probably using BSD license so they don't have to put it out.

Just beating a dead horse here, but LogMeIn is totally sweet with Safari.  I ran into enough bugs using Chrome and LogMeIn that I switched back to FF for that purpose.  So far Safari is fast and no bugs found yet.  This is very welcomed since logmein suffers from poor performance, though it's a very handy free tool for remote administration.
