Apple's new Safari 4 Web browser has been downloaded over 11 million times within 3 days of its launch, including 6 million downloads of Safari for Windows.

According to Apple, Safari loads HTML web pages more than three times faster than Internet Explorer 8 and three times faster than Firefox 3.

Safari 4 is the first browser to pass the Web Standards Project's Acid3 test, which examines how well a browser adheres to CSS, JavaScript, XML and SVG standards that are specifically designed for dynamic Web applications.

Features include Top Sites, for previewing frequently visited and favorite pages; Full History Search, to search through titles, web addresses and the complete text of recently viewed pages; Cover Flow, to flip through the Web history or bookmarks; Smart Address Fields for automatically completing web addresses from an easy to read list of suggestions; Search Fields to fine tune searches with recommendations from Google Suggest or a list of recent searches; and Full Page Zoom, for a closer look at any website without degrading the quality of the site's layout and text.

Safari 4 is available for both Mac OS X and Windows as a free download at .
