Re-enable the blue background loading progress indicator in the address field of Safari 4 beta.
I’ve been using Safari 4 beta for a while now, and so far really liking it. It took a while to get used to the tabs on top metaphor but I am slowly being converted. And it is fast as all get up.
One of things that I really missed from previous versions of Safari was the blue “loading” background given to the address bar while pages are loading. The new spinner icon at the right of the address bar looks really nice, but is pretty useless other than to say, “Hey look, I’m doing something, and will continue to be doing something until I am not.”
So, if you miss that lovely blue progress bar as much as I do, fire up your Terminal and execute the following commands.
defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4IncludeToolbarRedesign -boolean false
defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4LoadProgressStyle -boolean false
Restart Safari, and presto. The loading/progress indicator is useful again.
