Bookmark manager is oddly disabled, but it seems to work very nicely. Quite snappy and looks like a "proper" OS X application.


1Password doesn't work with it yet, so I'll be sticking with Safari until it does. (Firefox has issues with a couple of sites I use or I'd use that instead).

The attraction I have is the process separation - it does come at a price in terms of it being heavier with large numbers of tabs but it is a small price to pay for stability.

I've switched to it, much, much faster than Safari (and Firefox) for the work I've been doing.

I really like the "porn" mode as well - it's really nice and obvious in which mode your in.

I must confess, I thought it had been just hype, but ... it really does seem to be working really well.

I've just found the developer tools, too. I'm impressed.

I imagine that this will become my default browser once the beta moniker is dropped.

Why not just use Webkit Nightly, I like knowing every couple of days I get an update to make it a wee bit faster :D

Add to that ClicktoFlash and you have one very fast and non resource hogging browser!

Basically because I don't want to download a new update every single day ...
