Safari 4 Beta

safari4betaI feel like a James Bond Villain, sitting in front of a 23 inch HD monitor with the latest version of Safari running. It’s like sitting in front of my own bank of TV screens. 🙂

I have been using the new version of Safari 4 for the last few days and I have to say that I am impressed with some of the features. It also seems to refresh fairly quickly, and I do like the new Top Sites function. I haven’t come across any bugs yet, (this is the public beta version) which doesn’t really surprise me.

It is available to download from Apple.com. I will report back in due course if I find any problems.

So lugging a 6lb laptop, plus charger, plus Datacard and CF card reader and other ancillaries is a real pain. Even though many companies have tried to design camera bags to accommodate laptops, they invariably forget the stuff that goes with them.
