Apple Safari 4 renders web pages at lightning speed, believed to be the fastest web browser in the market. It delivers never-before-seen features that make browsing more fun. And it works on the Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPod touch. Meet Safari, the world’s most innovative browser, some of the new features are:
- Support for the next generation HTML 5 media tags, CSS animation, and CSS effects.
- Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
- The first browser to support International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles
- CSS 3 web fonts
Safari is designed to emphasize the browsing, not the browser. The browser frame is a single pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when needed. By default, there’s no status bar. Instead, a progress indicator turns as your page loads. You’ll find tabs at the very top of the browser, opening an even wider window for viewing websites. A great browser, Safari lets you simply enjoy the web — whether you’re exploring it from a Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPod touch.
IE8, Firefox vs Safari Comparison
One of the biggest differences between Firefox and IE against Safari is the font rendering engine, as critics pointed out earlier, it is unlike for Safari to gain any new converts from Firefox and IE due to their way Safari handles font rendering. The way Apple does fonts is very different from the way Microsoft does fonts, and there seems to be little to no common ground.
Apple begins a design cautious company tries to keep the design of the typeface as close to the actual look, thus explains the blurring. Whereas Microsoft trims the typeface to fit with the pixel on the LCD monitor, thus explain the sharper look.
