Apple today (June 12) announced that over 11 million copies of Safari 4 have been downloaded in the first three days of its release, including more than six million downloads of Safari for Windows.
Among other features, Safari 4 includes Top Sites, for visual preview of frequently visited and favorite pages; Full History Search, to search through titles, web addresses, and the complete text of recently viewed pages; and Cover Flow, to easily flip through web history or bookmarks.
Other features include Smart Address Fields for automatically completing web addresses from a list of suggestions; Search Fields, to fine tune searches with recommendations from Google Suggest or a list of recent searches; and Full Page Zoom, for a closer look at any website.
Safari running on Snow Leopard also delivers HTTP streaming, making it easy to deliver audio and video in industry standard formats from any web server without the need for browser plug-ins, says Apple.
Safari 4 is available for both Mac OS X and Windows as a free download at http://www.apple.com/safari.
