I thought I would start a thread specific to the Mac version of Safari v3 beta. I will start with a couple of bugs I've found, and then the new features I've found.


1) I've noticed one site I go to uses JavaScript to resize video. This does not work in Safari 3. The window resizes, but not the video.
2) The buttons on some pages look like they do on Windows. Ick.

Cool new features:

1) Anyone used the new Find? It's even better than Firefox's!
I like how things just "pop" out at you. It's like Pop-up Video on VH1.

2) I like the ability to move around tabs, but this ain't nothin' new--FF has had it for a while. But, Command click should move a tab without selecting it, like Command clicking a background window does not automatically bring it up to the front.

3) The ability to resize text boxes. Now, this is cool. But, I have to admit, it should have been there all along.
Funny how, when you see a new feature, you wonder how you lived without it.

Any other things you have noticed?

Added: Oh, and it is faster.

It's certainly quick, lots quicker at rendering pages than FF or older Safari. The resizable text boxes are also pretty neat, but I haven't really found a good reason for that one before.
