Safari tips disguised as a Firefox review

This Daring Fireball article has all kinds of tips for using Safari disguised as a comparison between Safari 3 and Firefox 3. (I won’t name names, but if your initials are peri-renna please take note that your milage may vary since you’re on a older version. )

For example:

I love Firefox’s auto-restoration of tabs and windows. Quit Firefox, relaunch it, and your previously-open tabs and windows are restored. Safari 3 has this feature, but makes you do it manually via the “Reopen All Windows From Last Session” command in the History menu. I’m sure most Safari users have no idea this feature even exists.

And holy heck, there’s a “Reopen Last Closed Window” choice in there too! Damn! Wish I’d known that a while ago.

Apple – Boot Camp

So Apple opened up a beta today where you can run Windows on your Intel Mac. Meh. It might make things easier if I actually was tied to a PC for anything I do, but outside of gaming I have no need for a PC, and generally I console game.

Anyway, Boot Camp still looks pretty cool, and if it gets more folks to buy Mac hardware, hey, my portfolio won’t mind.

Best line of the whole page:

Macs use an ultra-modern industry standard technology called EFI to handle booting. Sadly, Windows XP, and even the upcoming Vista, are stuck in the 1980s with old-fashioned BIOS. But with Boot Camp, the Mac can operate smoothly in both centuries.

Heh. Snarky.
