Safari beta 2

Apple has released the second beta of their browser, Safari. I thought I would be switching now that it has both pop-ups blocking and tab-browsing -- two features that I now can't live without and that are both missing in any IE incarnations but present in Camino -- but it is still not baked enough. Notably, the tab-browsing only works from within Safari, i.e. there is no preference to have links triggered by external applications open in a new tab. A definitive no-no now that I am used to crawl through the news in one batch with NetNewsWire and let it open tabs after tabs in the background for later browsing.

[Update] I was wrong, it is possible to get external applications to open tabs in the same window. Brent Simmons unveils the trick.
