Safari 4 problems and annoyances

It’s been approximately 24 hours since Apple released the public beta of Safari 4 and reports of bugs and crashes have started appearing in various discussion forums and blogs.

One of the issues I had was losing support for 1Password, a password management tool for the Mac. Thankfully, this issue has been resolved with today’s release of 1Password version 2.9.9.

Aside from third-party apps issues, MacFixIt also lists startup fails, crashing of Mail, and Gmail, Hotmail and other web apps not working.

Safari 4 beta has also earned the ire of some Mac users especially regarding the repositioning of the tab bar and the disappearance of the blue progress bar. Turns out that some of these changes can be reversed by accessing some hidden preferences in Safari 4.

The blog, Random Genius, has posted a list of Terminal Commands that, among other things, can bring back the blue progress bar, return the tab bar to its original Safari 3 position, remove Cover flow and more. For the adventurous and truly desperate, check out Random Genius.

For me, I get queasy even just thinking about opening Terminal. Eventually, I’ll get used to Safari 4’s new interface. I hope. Change is good. Hope and change. That’s what 2009 is all about.
