Tear-away Tabs in Safari 4

February 24th, 2009

safari I installed Safari 4 today. The tabs inline on the Windows title bar was the first thing that got my attention. At then right end of the tab was a gripper icon, which allowed me reorder the tabs or to tear away the tab so that it is in its own window. Very cool!

Here’s a video that I captured of the Safari 4 tabs in action.

    Safari v4 seems to have been inspired by Google Chrome, and not just by a little.

    I agree. Safari 4 is by no way original, but they do improve on the other browser’s existing functionalities. For example, inline search looks very pleasing in safari 4 compared to firefox.

    Must suck to have to wait until Apple got around to copying Google Chrome because they only released for Windows…

    I really like the use of Cover flow for Safari’s history – very nifty.
