Apple Gazette Video: Exploring the new features of Safari 3


I’m trying something a little different here. We’re experimenting with video players. Viddler is my favorite looking one so far….but I want to know what you guys think. The thing I like the most about this is the quality of the video. Hit the full screen button to get a really good look at the screencast.

  1. You also can reopen your last session and even your last closed window if you go into the history menu. Just thought it was an important new feature that I didn’t see mentioned in the video. Very cool though, I definitely am glad that they released the beta before Leopard came out.

  2. I tried it when I got home. It stinks. I can’t get it to record a movie. Blank video when used default settings. Any other settings just causes a crash.

  3. Safari is extremely heavy on memory, at least on Windows. When I open Firefox it occupies around 14 megs of RAM, which isn’t a lot compared to Safari’s 46mb consumption.

    On the other hand, I’ve witnessed that Safari does indeed render pages a bit faster than Firefox does, but I wouldn’t say that it’s performance is on par with the memory it consumes.

    At the moment, I wouldn’t recommend switching from Firefox to Safari, if you’re a Windows user. Right now I only use it to test HTML rendering, but I could very well “convert” in a near future, once they iron out some problems.
