Geez, we're a bunch of wankers. It's 5:30 in the afternoon, and no one has posted about all the new announcements. (I kinda have an excuse in that I'm not going to the show until Thursday.)

I downloaded Safari, the new web browser. Looks like the iTools, yup yup. Brushed nickel is your friend. But there was a bad start: there is no way to import bookmarks from programs like URL Manager. I played with Safari a bit, and it is certainly zippy.The position of newly-opened windows is completely lame and pretty unpredictable for large windows. I tried the "block pop-up" feature by going to a few random pr0n sites, and it does seem to work well. It's a spiffy product, but I'm not changing yet.

OK, the rest of you with post privs should start chiming in...
