Safari 3.1 for Webdevelopers

Safari 3.1 adds some important updates for web developers:

  • Adds option in Safari preferences to turn on the new Develop menu which contains various web development features
  • Allows access to Web Inspector
  • Allows access to Network Timeline
  • Allows editing CSS in the Web Inspector
  • Allows custom user agent string
  • Improves snippet editor
