Safari 4.0 release removes the “innovative” interface for tabs
Remember back in Feb when Apple made the beta available and they moved the tabs above the header menu, what an uproar the web community had about it and what were they thinking. After just installing the release of the Safari today I’m sad to see the navigation toolbar has reverted back to the original tabs beneath the url. After using the beta and getting use to the tabs above I believe it was an improvement of navigation because it allowed for easier reading of tabs and and allowed you to separate them from the content area. Now with the tabs below, like every major browser, it seems to disconnect the content or have an invisible barrier between the two content and the navigation. I hope Apple brings back the new design or allows us to choose in a future update, maybe in Snow Leopard. Otherwise the browser is fast and works great, see some of the new features at http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html.
