any tiger users try 10.4.11 yet? I'm hesitant to switch to Safari 3, personally.

Why, works pretty well on my old G4 450, a bit faster than the old Safari 2.

I'd probably wait a bit. My MacPro installed the update just fine, but MacBook Pro hanged up after the boot. Exactly the same thing that happened to them (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1240555&tstart=0) too. I forced the power off after the update had been going on over 15 minutes (showing that grey screen with apple logo and progress circle), and after I booted the update seemed to work and the info shows 10.4.11. So, be careful and at least make a backup before upgrading - it is always a bit risky if you have to turn off the power in the middle of a OS upgrade...

Not a lot of changes in Safari 3 (since it's beta) I've heard - but then again I use Camino myself.

well, it's always good to do a cleanup before updating, in any case. start in single user mode and do a fsck or use applejack to do so. then restart and run the updater. it's not a good idea to run it straight away after a long user session. ...and never update if working on an important project and this is your only machine ;)

Good advices. Many also recommend installing the combo-update (which holds all updates after 10.4.0) just to be in the safe side - although I've to admit that I'm too lazy to do that myself... ;)

PS. Jeremy, have you tried Camino? (http://caminobrowser.org/) Works pretty well for me, especially as I don't like Safari too much.

... ok, i admit, i didn't do all this for myself. at least on my 'personal' powerbook ;)
but i never would recommend this to others. i'm just a lucky guy...

jeremy not one of those issues here... yet (but already using heavily)! (PPC G5, G4, intel)

It's odd, Safari had been crashing on me (v2) at launch intermittently since I installed the summer time correction thing about six months ago, Safari three seems to have solved this and runs just fine. As an aside, I've just come here from Gizmodo where someone had commented in a post on proffering 'moc.odomzig', out of curiosity I Googled it and selected one of the results, at which point the entire page displayed back to front, I'm pretty sure you'll all tell me this is an old gag and I'm the last to catch on.

....

Still works fine here, but its a bit slower now. But this is maybe due to my adblocker running in the back.

To me Safari 3 definitely feels snappier.

However, now Im unable to login to my internet banking account due some issue with "old Java-version" WTF???

There are no issues with Firefox2 so it must be Safari3...

so glad I didn't make the jump.

Not that I'm on boot camp. But I do wonder what other issues there are.
