That's a very good assesment of the browser and I thouroughly agress to all your statements.<br>I also like to drag out blocks of text to the desktop.<br>Back in 8.6 I faithfully used an app called NetPrint, in which you could highlight text blocks and either choose to print it, clip it as a clipping (which you could then surf some more, and save more info as clippings, and when you were done researching, save all the clippings as one text file), or just save it right away as a text file. I realy miss that app.<br>I now use Notebook as my Notebook for OS X which doesn't have one.<br>I always have it open or minimized because I store passwords to sites, urls's for my pics and graphics that I use for my posts, etc. I have a note page for all my text that I want to save, and just copy and paste into it. I t might be even better than dragging a clipping on the desktop cause you are now forced to organize it...haha<br><br>I also use DragThing, in which I have Notepad in one of the docks and assigned an F key to open Notebook, or bring it to the front to paste into with the touch of one key.<br><br>

I like it alot for a beta, if it has new builds on it like Chimera that would be nice. I noticed on the bookmarks you can place it as a tab rather than clicking the little book icon, am I right?<br><br>

What would I like to see in Safari?<br><br>How about a Zoom/Magnifying lens and a grabbing hand for navigating page layouts? (Similar to Acrobat Reader). <br><br>Hopefully the other browsers would follow suit. Implementing this as a standard within browsers would help designers/developers a lot by eliminating the need for font size control/layout resolution sniffing, etc. <br><br><br>----<br>S3V3N<br>Washington, DC USA
I've never seen a grabbing hand in ANY browser, so I don't know if the technology makes it possible.<br><br>But that is a good idea. I spend so much time doing just that in Quark and Photoshop that sometimes I hit the spacebar in my browser to try and do the same thing...<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
zoom is always tricky with bitmaps. would be nice to develop an image format that first loads a preview size and gets sharper till it reaches perfect quality to the size that the browser is set to. but this is way beyond safari.<br><br>btw, nice report MacGizmo, you should work for a Mac magazine as a journalist. really.<br><br>i only miss the tabs, all the rest is perfect for me.<br><br>

Good assesment, Giz. I pretty much agree with everything you've said. I'd like to see tabs (or something similar) somewhere down the road. Autofill is a good news/bad news thing. It's convenient, but it also makes personal information available to anyone who might sit down at your keyboard.<br><br>Bottom line ? it's a beta, and the feedback option is there for a purpose. The one thing that Jobs said that I think makes a lot of sense is "... people only use what they understand...". So to start off a little feature-starved is a good way to allow the basics to be evaluated on their own merits. Once you have the foundation rock-solid, then you can start hanging the extra trim on it. I think it's a great start, and I look forward to it's growth. <br><br>
