Friday night Apple released Mac OS X 10.3, a.k.a. Panther. A great new version with loads of improvements. I don’t normally write about operating systems here, so I won’t bother you with the details.
However, one thing that does belong here is the new version of Safari that ships with Panther. The version number is 1.1(v100). I haven’t seen any mention of it being available for those who haven’t upgraded to Panther. Maybe it will be, maybe it won’t.
At Surfin’ Safari, Dave Hyatt writes about what’s new in Safari 1.1. Besides bug fixes and UI refinements, things like better standards support, speed, better support for CSS2, CSS3 opacity and support for the XUL box model are great. He also mentions that more recent builds finally have support for displaying the title attribute in tooltips.
Update: Even more Safari goodies to come are revealed in Safari 1.1, part 2. Also check out Todd Dominey’s little text-shadow demo (Safari 1.1 + Mac OS X 10.3 required).
