CNET News Video: WWDC 2009: Safari 4

2:07 /

At Apple's WWDC in San Francisco, the company's VP of Mac OS engineering, Craig Federighi, shows off improved features of Safari 4, including faster display speeds and full history search.

>> The next big area I want to cover is Safari 4. Snow leopard ships with the final version of Safari 4. And if you are a Safari user, I hope you are, like me, it is the fastest browser on any platform. If we want to visit an image-rich site like ESPN, we hit it--boom, stunning speed and that speed extends to JavaScript sites as well. Let's go to Google Maps--loads quickly and whether it is zooming, panning, switching modes, just stunning, stunning, speed with that nitro JavaScript engine. But you know Safari also makes it faster and easier than ever to track my top sites--the sites that I visit most. I click on the top sites icon here and I get an intelligently laid out, beautiful panoramic view of all the sites I visit most. Getting to one of them couldn't be more natural. I want to go visit ESPN, I click, it fades in and I'm viewing. I want to go back, fades right back out; and top sites is even tracking for me when a site that I view has changes since I've last been there with this little blue star. The final really great area of Safari I'd like to cover is full history search. So if I want to go back and find a site that I visited recently, I just click search in this Search History filter in the lower right, and I get a colorful view across my browsing history. Very easy to find what I'm looking for. ^M00:01:32 [ Audience clapping ] ^M00:01:38 >> But not just that. I have full spotlight search of this content and not just of the URL's or the window titles, but of the text and the pages. So I type Maui not K Maui. Let's type Maui; and I get all the pages that I've been using visiting to plan my Maui vacation, find the one I want, click, and I'm browsing. Very easy way to get through my history.
