I finally figured out how to set my default homepage in the new safari 4 beta browser. I ran several tests to compare the total time required to open the browser and homepage and the results were the same for Mozilla Firefox and IE8; they each took 40 to 45 seconds to open the page. Safari,won by a landslide with opening times ranging from 7 seconds to 10 seconds. I am really impressed with the speed of safari !!!!

Thanks to Apple for developing this browser for windows XP....


ps safari automatically imported my favorites from IE too.
