Apple Safari v.4 Beta For Faster Gmail

On a morning when Google is now on Twitter, given some difficulties with Gmail downtime in Europe and China, the message is clear.  Use the tool that gets the job done.

So if you want the latest on the GmailBlog, then you should check out GmailBlog on Twitter.

While Google was having its Gmail problems, you perhaps missed that Apple released the latest version of its Safari browser, that’s v.4 Beta.  PC Magazine finds it is certainly one of the best around, so you may wish to consider checking it out.  There is lots that is new and the performance is particularly interesting.  It uses what it calls its Nitro Engine

Still the world’s fastest web browser, Safari outraces Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. On even the most demanding Web 2.0 applications, Safari delivers blazingly fast performance thanks to the industry’s most advanced rendering technologies.

Using the new Nitro Engine, for example, Safari executes JavaScript up to 30 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and more than 3 times faster than Firefox 3 based on performance in leading industry benchmark tests: iBench and SunSpider.

You can get the download here.

Like many enthusiastic Firefox browser users, I have a difficulty thinking about any other browser.  However Gmail in Firefox gives a somewhat slower experience than one might like.  You might think that using the Google Chrome browser might be the way to handle your Gmail but unfortunately although it is fast, the user experience is not all it should be.

Enter Apple Safari v.4 Beta and it really handles Gmail well.  It is certainly as fast as Chrome in this application and it is a most pleasing user experience.  Try it, you’ll like it.

  1. I’ve been using it for a little bit and it seems to stall and return a ‘failed to load page’ error.

    I can’t wait till all browsers adopt Google Chrome’s idea of multi-tabs means multi-processors. I had when one tab slows up others. It’s just annoying, especially when it crashes and you forgot (or don’t know) the url’s you were on. 🙁

    It’s nice but could be better. 🙂

    Oh, and I don’t check gmail at, I use the mail application, so it’s all good. 🙂
