Apple Safari - Now on Windows too!
« on: June 11, 2007, 08:16:22 PM »
Just a few Minutes ago at the WWDC keynote Apple announced that Safari 3.0 will be available for Windows XP and Vista. They are claiming that it is twice as fast as IE. We will see when it is released but  this is good news! available today as a free beta (will post link when available)

Isn't this the same Safari Browser (albeit a new version) that Mac (A.K.A. Kyle) prefers to use Firefox instead of ???

At the moment it doesn't since you can't add any safety features to it.
I for one don't intend to give up safety to gain a little speed.

Hi malware fighters,

This new browser is a beta. It may not be secure. There were three null pointer crashes found up within three minutes of browser launch-up: Further were serious security issues with this browser.
