Safari Tab View

Today during the WWDC 2012 keynote, Apple revealed the major features that Safari 6.0 will bring with it in Mountain Lion. First, it was revealed that Safari 6 processes Javascript faster than any other browser. As for features, Apple is bringing a unified search URL bar to the browser, which is a very welcome addition. Reading List picks up an offline mode as we uncovered a few weeks ago. There's iCloud tab syncing, a feature that collects all the open tabs across all your devices, allowing for easy access from any of them. You pick up right where you left off. I've been playing with the feature for a few minutes, and it's actually way more convenient than I thought it would be. Lastly, you now have live tab view. On any page, you pinch the page and it zooms out, showing you an iOS-like view of all your open tabs. Swipe through them for a preview of the content, and click (or tap) to go to that tab. Safari 6.0 will ship as part of Mountain Lion in July.
