Hands on: Safari 4 beta fast, mixes polish, rough UI edges
 
Headlining Apple's feature list is Top Sites, a display of thumbnails of your most frequently visited sites—perhaps more well known as the "Most Recent" home screen in Google's Chrome browser and Opera's Speed Dial (Microsoft also has a version in betas of IE8). Apple has attempted to innovate here though, by applying a pointless 3D effect to the view.

Top Sites defaults to showing 12 sites, but you can switch between larger screen shots (six only) and smaller thumbnails (20). In addition, you can permanently remove any site from being displayed or make a site sticky regardless of its status on your frequently visited list. Clicking any site will zoom and fade the viewport (the area where the page is rendered) into the browser's last-saved thumbnail, replacing it when the site has finished loading.
