Apple Reveals Safari 7

Apple Reveals Safari 7Shows how far behind Apple really is.

Recently, Apple has revealed the seventh version of its Safari web browser, that (like Internet Explorer) gets rarely updated, so it should be a pretty big deal, at least for them.

What kind of crazy features did they add this time? Unfortunately, most of these are just catching up with competition, for example:

Audio & Video tags
Private Browsing
CSS Canvas
Grammar Checking
… and so on

I mean, highlighting Private Browsing and Audio & Video tags in such manner is worth more than just a facepalm. One of the better features though is the iCloud Keychain feature, allowing you to generate and store passwords across your devices.

Lastly, Apple touted memory usage optimizations although actual numbers are lacking. As far as release date goes, it’s coming with OS X 10.9, which is set for Q3-Q4 release.

    Well someone obviously not only have not watched the presentation but also has no clue what they are talking about… All those features that are “highlighted” in the image are one’s that Apple claimed they have been “innovators” and “inventors” of. The real new features they have presented were: Opera style side bar, auto fill forms and password/bookmarks syncing. So if anything this article is “worth more than just a facepalm”. Not that I’m defending Apple or anything but this is pretty bad writing/researching.

    At first I assumed this article was supposed to be a joke. But it appears you were serious. As Maxim pointed out, the slide shown was a list of features they had either created or highly influenced. Considering it’s basically WebKit, I should think you of all people should know these aren’t new features.
