    Safari 7 review: Mavericks browser saves battery life, brings further refinements

    Posted October 29, 2013 - 2:48 pm

    The new OS X Mavericks seems to offer far better performance and power management--but its programs often pack fewer features and less elegant interfaces. The same holds true on both counts for Safari 7. It's as fast as its predecessor in rendering HTML, and far zippier with Javascript, but the changes to its look and feel aren't all improvements.

  • How to save search URLs in Safari 6

    Posted August 11, 2012 - 7:25 am

    As you’ve probably heard, Safari 6 has a new combined URL and search field. If you type a search term into that field then press Return, you’ll get a Google page with search results. But, oddly, the URL for that Google search won’t appear in that search-address field; instead, the search term itself will remain there. This can be frustrating, because sometimes you want the URL for the Google results page, either to save or to share.

    Opera 12: a work in progress finally shows real improvements

    Posted July 14, 2012 - 7:45 am

    If Opera 11.5 ( Macworld rated 3 out of 5 mice ) was a browser that wanted to be an operating system, Opera 12 happily seems to abandon that dream. This free, open-source browser’s designers are shedding the nifty but pointless bells and whistles that made previous versions so charmingly eccentric and overstuffed. In their place, Opera 12 takes a respectable stab at assembling a finely focused modern browser.

    Chrome for iOS nearly worthy of default browser status

    Posted July 14, 2012 - 7:11 am

    Google's Chrome browser for iOS is well made and a pleasure to use, particularly if you're deeply entrenched in Google's ecosystem. But owing to a few unfortunate limitations--many of them outside of Google's control--it's tough to recommend that anyone rely on Chrome as their main iOS Web browser.

I took it for a spin to see how it compares to Apple's built-in Safari browser. In brief, the Chrome iOS mobile browser has some innovative features, but is hampered by the fact it can't tap into Apple's Nitro JavaScript engine to Safari.
