Elegant user interface.
Safari's clean, sleek look lets you focus on the web instead of your browser. The browser frame is a mere one pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. You see no status bar by default a blue progress bar fills the address field as the page loads giving you more room to browse and view the web. And with commonly used tools like a Google search field built right into Safari, you can get anywhere on the web faster.
Now you can enjoy worry-free web browsing on any computer. Apple engineers designed Safari to be secure from day one. For starters, Safari uses robust encryption to ensure that your private information stays that way. When you browse a secure site, Safari displays a lock icon in the upper-right corner of the browser. If you want to know more about the credentials of a secure site, click the lock icon and Safari displays detailed information about
the site's security certificate.
Safari supports SSL versions 3 and 4, as well as Transport Layer Security (TLS), the next generation of Internet security. Safari uses these technologies to provide a secure, encrypted channel that protects all your information from online eavesdroppers. And Safari lets you use standards-based authentication such as Kerberos single sign-on and X.509 personal certificates, or proprietary protocols like NTLMv2 to log in to secure sites.
Safari also supports a variety of proxy protocols services that help firewalls control what flows in and out of the network including Automatic Proxy configuration, FTP Proxy, Web Proxy (HTTP), Secure Web Proxy (HTTPS), Streaming Proxy (RTSP), SOCKS Proxy, and Gopher Proxy.
Say goodbye to annoying pop-up ads and pop-under windows that clutter up your desktop and distract you from your browsing. By default, Safari blocks all unprompted new windows. You can open new windows when you click links, but you'll get no surprises from unexpected, unwanted pop-ups.
Graphics and fonts.
Apple brings the same amazing graphics technology to Safari that's used in Mac OS X to ensure great color in everything from iPhoto to Final Cut Pro. Safari is the only browser that employs advanced color management to deliver web images with the most accurate color possible.
