Macworld Video: Safari 3

Apple released a public beta for the new version of Safari this week—Safari 3 will run on Windows as well as the finished version of Mac OS X 10.5 that arrives in October. If you haven’t downloaded the beta and tried it for yourself, I take you on a guided tour of some of the browser’s new features.

Specifically, we’ll look at dragging tabs, Safari’s new expandable text fields, the enhanced Find feature, and new dialog boxes to merge windows and prevent you from quitting with multiple tabs or modified text boxes onscreen.
