After unleashing a beta version of its Safari 3 browser upon the Windows-using masses last spring, Apple has finally taken the browser out of beta with the new 3.1 release. This new version introduces several enhancements, including a snappier rendering engine, new developer tools, support for HTML 5 audio and video tags, and support for CSS 3 animations. You can read more about Safari 3.1 in Apple's official product overview (PDF).
Safari 3.1's performance isn't all numbers, either: the new browser really feels incredibly snappy and smooth, whether it's browsing TR, posting in the comments section, or sifting through e-mails in GMail. However, Safari does defy Windows convention, and its Apple-style font antialiasing and lack of support for autoscroll certainly aren't for everyone. The browser can be downloaded from this page.
