Comments: Safari now on Microsoft Windows too


Today I discovered via the website Digg that Apple has released the Safari 3 public beta: The world's best browser - according to Apple - now on Windows, too. So I downloaded the Windows version of this browser and decided to give it a try on my Compaq Presario running Microsoft Windows XP.

Read the rest of Safari now on Microsoft Windows too.


It can be zippity in some pages, but in the age of broadband, who cares?

Thanks John, that's quite a list.

So far I haven't been able to crash Safari, and Firefox crashes here maybe once a fortnight.

I agree with you that Apple should switch to the orange RSS icon, which somewhat has become the defacto standard.

I also noticed the lack of the status bar but I guess most users wouldn't miss it - I did though.

Due to the short time I have been playing with Safari I haven't seen the other issues you mentioned yet. But based on the description I would say that most should be fixed. The theme didn't bother me too much, but I can imagine that quite some users would prefer a native looking theme.
