    Meh, since it still can't beat even Chrome in speed, I'm sticking with Safari 4.

    There's a lot of people saying that - including me :) I've been surprised how good Safari 4 is. No download manager integration though :( & I'd miss my downthemall.

    about time, was the only real thing I used IE for. The awesomebar can be extremely incriminating.

    is that true? I thought Safari 3.4 & 4, Opera and Chrome3 already had this?

    I don't think it's available on any released - i.e. non-beta - browser, although I'm prepared to be wrong.

    Aren't those all technically still betas?

    As for 3.5 shipping on Tuesday, I think 3.5 Beta users may have gotten the download early (or at least my "about" window no longer says anything about a beta).

    Mine doesn't either, no beta notices anywhere. Then again, probably just a mistake on their part perhaps. I haven't updated Firefox since downloading the Beta.

    I know it's a lame name, but that is what Mozilla call it.

    Safari 4 went gold a couple weeks ago, and I remember Apple was making a big toot about having HTML 5 support then, or at least the http-streaming parts. Maybe Safari et al just haven't had full support, and so FF3.5 is the first to support all the new features?

    The overlay features are more fully supported in FF 3.5 than Safari Opera or Chrome (unless you use the dev branch of chrome which is way ahead of FF 3.5).

    So has the W3C completely finished the HTML 5 spec and just waiting for browsers to implement it, or are they still developing it?
