With the release of the sexy New Apple G5 in America yesterday, it isn’t surprising that news begins to circle the Web on the launch of the next generation Intel and AMD processors.

Coincidently Apple the other day released a sneak preview of their next generation Operating System OS X 10.3 code-named Panther due for release in August. Yesterday also, Apple removed the Beta label of the Safari browser bumping it up to release 1.0. I have been testing for a few months with this browser and it appears this final release has fixed a bug which I came across in the beta version with nested Font sizes in EMS.
