Safari 5 Rumored to Launch at WWDC ➝

MacGeneration reports that Apple may be launching Safari 5 at tomorrow’s WWDC keynote. They’ve managed to get their hands on what appears to be a changelog which lists some of the major features.

25% faster JavaScript performance, DNS prefetching, the option to use Bing as your search engine, and improved HTML5 support are among some of the features listed. There will be a new “Safari Reader” feature which will let you “view articles on the web in a single, clutter-free page.” There will be new Safari developer tools and my favorite new feature, tab settings that allow you to force links that open new windows into tabs instead.

It’s hard to tell if MacGeneration’s feature list is legit or not, however John Gruber has previously hinted at a new version of Safari being announced at WWDC. So, whether this feature list is fake or not, Safari 5 will likely be at tomorrow’s keynote.
