"Thumbs down for Apple"

March 29, 2009  |  By Hannibal Fortune

 |  Version: Safari 4 Buddy 1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really wanted to like Safari 4.0. Honest. I gave it a couple of weeks, using it every day. But I really couldn't get used to the tabs on top. Yeah, it saves a bit of window real estate, but I missed being able to read full page titles. Sorry, Apple, but just seeing the first few words are not enough. And with today's big screens, most people don't miss a few more pixels on top anyway. I also definitely did not like the way the tabs kept changing width. Half and one-third window tabs just don't look right. And while I like Top Sites, even though it hasn't been terribly useful yet, I hated the way pages were grayed out for a few seconds when you select a site there.

With Safari 4 Buddy, a few clicks and all's fine again. Thank you! I hope either Apple learns their lesson and gives us the old options again, or at least doesn't block apps like S4 Buddy. There's a little bit of promise there. At least Apple finally got rid of SnapBack (except for search results, where it actually is useful). In years of using Safari, I used SnapBack maybe three times. So Apple isn't completely off in its own world.

If you don't like some of the new features in Safari, let Safari 4 Buddy put you back in control.

I disabled all the new features and Safari is much faster.

Quick and easy. I could not be happier.

"Love It, Hate The \"Competition\""

March 26, 2009  |  By David Nelson

 |  Version: Safari 4 Buddy 1.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This app is clearly better than Safari 4 Modifier. It is smaller, faster, better looking, and better quality.

For whatever reason, VersionTracker has featured the Safari 4 Modifier. All I can say that the world has lost it completely.

The "competition" is said to have more features (removing a toolbar icon). Wow. That really makes me want to use it. It is also said to be better looking. This is seriously laughable.

Well, I have stated my case. Safari 4 Buddy was released first, is lighter, better looking, faster, smarter, more Mac-like, and someone turn me off before I use more adjectives.
