Snow Leopard's Safari 4 is now running in 64-bit mode with Java 6. This shows a great improvement of the Asset map in MySource Matrix (finally!!!) and Safari no longer hangs during the load of the Asset Map. Asset map is now actually usable as soon as it loads.

Having used Snow Leopard for almost a day now, I already have a list of improvements I noticed so far.
... and in general:
- Preview.app: CMD-Delete sends the current file to the Trash
- Clicking the pill button in Finder windows has an animation now
- The selection box in finder fades out when you let go
- Preferences icon in the dock shows list of Preference Panes when right clicked
- When expanding a folder down in List View in the Finder, the icon changes to an opened folder icon
- Right-clicking a Dock menu and right-clicking again closes the menu, as it should
- Apple changed the Stacks animation to a zooming animation instead of the scattering icons animation. It's much smoother
- Finder windows keep their shadows during a minimise
- Scrolling in the Finder is smoother
- Finder prefs has an option to show or hide the warning when changing file extensions
- Finder now has a "Path Bar"
- Exposé's "All Windows" mode now shows minimised windows in the bottom of the screen
- New option in the Dock preferences pane "Minimize windows into application icon"
- All animations are much smoother now
- No horizontal tearing in Spaces anymore
- No horizontal tearing in Safari scrolling
- Lots of little subtle Finder animations
