John Gruber reviews Safari 4

John Gruber today posted a lengthy review of Safari 4. If you’re keeping score at home, I:

  • Agree with his request to bring back the Safari 3 progress indicator.
  • I like the way the new tabbed interface looks, but I agree with nearly all of his complaints about the difficulties they present for users.
  • His complaints about the tab colors are something I’d never have noticed, but I agree should be rectified.
  • I love the new Top Sites feature, and I didn’t even know you could edit the list or that it checks for updates to those sites automatically.

All things considered, I’m pretty sure Apple should hire Gruber as QA lead for Safari. If nothing else, I hope the QA folks at Apple are reading his blog and filing bug reports.
