Although Safari has an attractive design, the previous versions suffered from slow speed navigation. Better performance is expected with this new entry. The browser is using a new JavaScript engine called “Nitro” that Apple claims performs more than 4 times faster than Safari 3. Most of the interface of this browser is same as Google Chrome as both of these browsers are built using the same Apple’s Webkit engine.
