The big news this week revolves around Web browsers, as Apple releases a public beta of Safari 4, showcasing a new tab interface, the graphical Top Sites view, and Cover Flow for bookmarks and history. Doug McLean looks at what’s new in Safari 4, and also passes on the news that the Omni Group has made its OmniWeb Web browser (and three other programs) free. Matt Neuburg reviews his favorite new keyboard, the utterly retro Customizer 104 from Unicomp, designed to feel like IBM’s legendary Model M keyboard. Elsewhere in the issue, Adam shares a look at a wonderful site that obsessively documents iPhoto’s book themes, and Glenn Fleishman offers a hands-on review of Amazon’s new Kindle 2 ebook reader. In the TidBITS Watchlist this week, we look at 1Password 2.9.9, Photoshop 11.0.1, MacSpeech Dictate 1.3, Corel Painter 11, and Cocktail 4.3.1.
