ss_safari4b_01.jpgApple has released the first public Beta of Safari 4, a new version of its web browser that packs a powerful new JavaScript engine and support for the latest web standards.

Dubbed "Nitro", the engine in Safari 4 is said to run JavaScript 4.2 times faster than Safari 3. Other new features include Top Sites, for a visual preview of frequently visited pages; Full History Search, to search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages; Cover Flow, to easily flip through web history or bookmarks; and Tabs on Top, to make tabbed browsing easier and more intuitive. If you are a Windows user, Safari 4 will look very home as it features Windows native look and feel.
