Surfing with Safari

The New Safari – I dig the new purple icon!

I love stepping just outside of my usual surfing patterns to learn about something new. Today I discovered the preview version of Apple’s new Safari browser*, a fantastically fast and fresh update! In fact, I am using it right now to write this blog. For the most part, Safari is a reliable browser that I use just about all of the time, but sometimes for whatever reason, Safari won’t load certain web pages for me, like a bitly link or YouTube links and then I need to fallback to Chrome or Firefox. Chrome is okay, but I prefer using the native browser. I am hoping this new Safari browser will have fewer compatibility issues and I won’t see the dreaded partial blue progress bar so much. It’s still an early release, so I expect that there will be some quirks, but Apple will no doubt work most of them out. The browser is so much faster than the current version that I have added it to my dock so I can use it as my primary browser. If you are a Mac user, this is worth checking out!
