  • Safari 6 Available Now


    Safari 6 is now available for both OS X Mountain Lion users and for Mac OS X Lion users. OS X Mountain Lion comes with the new Safari Web browser and includes all the of the new features, while Mac OS X Lion users will find the update from the Software Update function in the Apple menu and the Web browser update will include limited features. By limiting the features in the Mac OS X Lion version, it is clear that Apple is trying to push people into buying OS X Mountain Lion.

    Safari 6 gains some requested features such as a Google Chrome-like unibar that integrates Web searches and the URL bar into a single bar instead of the usual separated text fields Ė one for search engine queries and one for Web site URLs. The new unified bar has auto-complete so when you start typing, the text field will bring up suggestions that you can click on to shorten the amount of letters you need to type. This feature is available for both OS X Mountain Lion and Mac OS X Lion users.

    The rest of these features are for OS X Mountain Lion users only.

    iCloud tabs are now available in Safari 6, which allows you to start reading someone on one device and pick up on it later with another device. It works across both Mac and iOS platforms so you can always find time to read what you left off on. The feature is used with a new button on the browser's interface that resembles the iCloud icon and after you click on it, you can select the Web page you were just viewing on another device to see it on your Mac.

    Safari 6 also comes with a new tab view function that is similar to how to switch through tabs on the iPhone. A simple pinch gesture can be performed and you will see all your opened tabs in a line that you can swipe through and click on the one you want to open. The animations look really cool too!

    What's more is with Safari 6, you can easily share the Web page youíre looking at on Twitter, Facebook (coming this fall), via e-mail, or with OS X Mountain Lionís new Messages application, which is the desktop version of iMessage. It's possible to do over half of these things without this feature already, however the integrated button makes it easier than having to manually navigate to your Facebook or Twitter page to copy and paste a link.

    Apart from the larger features, the browser also comes with stability improvements, speed improvements, and privacy enhancements. These smaller improvements target both OS X Mountain Lion and Mac OS X Lion users.

      How can you share the pages you are looking at through Facebook??? Please explain this! From what I have read and understood, Facebook compatibility is scheduled to be added later this fall through a software update!

      Ya know, thats disappointing as that was actually one feature I was looking forward to. Oh well. Its still a great update/upgrade overall. However, for some reason, Im getting the impression this is going to become a yearly paid upgrade. Im not sure how I feel about that.
