Apple has released a new beta version of its Safari 4 Web browser with technology that the company claims makes it the world's faster browser. Apple says it's built on a new Nitro JavaScript engine that can execute code up to 30 times faster than IE 7 and more than three times faster than Firefox 3. And what about Safari 3? The Nitro engine in Safari will run JavaScript 4.2 times faster than the previous Safari build. There's more than just a JavaScript speed boost. Safari 4 runs on both PCs and Macs, and it brings innovations from Mac OS X and even the iPhone to the browser.

OK, I used to use Safari, now use Firefox after some update or other rendered Safari useless as it crashed immediately after starting (or attempting to start) ..... yes I use a mac. The new version is no better, even after deleting the old version deleting prefs, zapping p-ram etc etc. 1/10 for effort Apple, I'll stick with Firefox. After all what exactly does 4 times faster mean when Firefox doesn't seem to be slow?
