“Setting aside performance tests as marketing, Safari does ‘feel’ faster to me. Using Safari 3 on a 2.0GHz Core Duo iMac and a 1.25GHz PowerBook, my perception was that pages were rendering faster,” Jade reports.
“Safari 3 is a better browser. It’s not only faster, but I’ve noticed better compatibility from at least one site already, Blockbuster Online. Then there’s stability.
