According to the rumor, the new Safari 5 will include improvements such as a "smarter" address field, hardware acceleration of Web page elements for the Windows version, improved history searching, a new private browsing icon, and a plethora of other improved features. Safari 5 is rumored to have multiple new features including: Safari Reader (which sounds like a new version of Safari's built-in RSS reader), improved performance, better page caching, faster DNS prefetching (which should improve page loading times), a Bing search option, improved HTML5 support, and more developer tools.
