Safari 3.1

Fire up you SW update, people. Safari 3.1 is out.

And according to at least some accounts, there's a decent speed boost on this new release.

Safari 3.1 to Bring Performance Boosts ("Snappier") - Mac Rumors

Quote:
Webkit Build r30090: 3495.8ms
Safari 3.1 Beta: 3408.0ms
Safari 3.0.4: 9302.3ms (extrapolated)

Amongst other improvements, the latest Safari beta does seem to incorporate the speed optimizations found in the latest Webkit builds. Webkit is an open source project that serves as the basis for Apple's Safari browser. Webkit's nightly builds offer end-users access to the latest (potentially unstable) Webkit updates. A number of other browsers also use Webkit and will also benefit from these improvements.

Definitely faster. Doesn't seem to do much else though. Still can't run Pith Helmet.

Recommend having a look at FFx Beta 3. Has come a long way and finally looks respectable.

Wow! This version is blazingly faster then the last one. No matter which site I go to, it just loads it so much faster. Incredible.

Quick question: What does the new Database function do in the Security Preferences of Safari? What sort of information will be put there? That seems to be the only new thing I found while checking out Preferences.

Mine continues to load sites slowly, stumbling on something or other. It has been doing this since at least version 3, if not before. Running Firefox immediately after, I get a much quicker response. I wish I could figure out what the problem is because I prefer Safari to any other browser.

Acid2 test still fails on reload.

Acid3 test has a long way to go. The WebKit builds do a much better job.

Version 3.1 seems snappier to me, which is a big enough improvement in and of itself. Now, if only the random page stalling would go away...

Good question. I did some banking sites and nothing showed up there. I'd like so see some better cookie removal management. Specify locked cookies and erase all the other junk automatically. Although my biggest want this is to be able to highlight a bookmark in colour and a better sort.

I miss my Safari Enhanced "Debug Menu" already,
Now I have to wait until Safari Enhancer catches up to this version of Safari.
(I tried to reinstall Safari Enhancer but it won't work with this version of Safari,
I reinstalled Safari 3.1 because I think I damaged it with the old Safari Enhancer installer)

Not sure if I like that because I like to periodically flush all of the caches.

What a relief...
Java seems to work better now on the online game web site I frequent.

They have fixed some CSS display issues that were around in the previous version...that's good. Speed seems about the same for me. I prefer Firefox still
