    Yes it's true apple have start a testing on the Apple safari browser on the windows platform

    you can find the beta safari on their site on

    www.apple.com/safari

    allthough i see the keynote and steve jobs was mostly focus on the firefox market share nor the ie7

    it is more than 2 times faster from ie7
    and 1,6 from firefox

    let the browser war begins
     
    Zero Cool and Fox34 say thanks.

    Safari is crap. Not even Mac users use it.

    I like IE7 (I know...but I'm just used to it, we use it at work as we have plugins for GM Service Information for it), and Opera, both treat me well and are stable for me. But I may try Safari just for something new...

    I'm not quite sure what you are getting at. Are you refering to Apple as the uber darkside or am I off base here?

    I am definitely no huge fan of Apple but I have to give them credit where credit is due. They have been in the forefront of inovative computer technology for many years. Many things we use on our PC were either created or standardized by Apple. Sure, they've had their fair share of flops but then again, so have every other PC company. I definitely do not think Apple is bad and/or to be considered uber darkside...

    Missunderstood and perhaps missguided, yes. Uber Darkside, no.

    If you want darkside, all you have to do is take a look over in Microsoft's and Creative's direction for the ugly lockdown they have in their respective markets. Gotta give em credit though, they took advantage of the situations they were in...

    I couldn't agree with you more. I use Firefox on my PCs AND Macs. Tho I have to say, Safari is much better than IE7, imo.

    even if mac had any sort of influence, it still all boils down to a pc, you can actually mod a PC, change out the hardware, get programs, games and what not. Macs just dont really do much for an enthusiast, for a more business oriented way its good, such as video or sound editing but that is about as far as they go.

    i want to reply almost to all 1 apple is a young skywalker going to the dark side (the want more ;) ) actuly the safari is a 3% of browsers (steve jobs admin it i have him on video) so he admit that nor the mac society use it and as he says the safari is not competitor of ie7 but firefox

    the ie7 is a global standar it will never die like windows but that doesn't mean they are the best

    apple is a great company with a lot of history and any pc guy should be say thank you, but they always bet on the wrong horse(as they do now with blue ray)if they adopt firefox (and release a linux safari) a lot of people gonna make the change..

    It's ugly. To each his own, thankfully. Apple.com took about a minute to fully load, too.

    I think I'll stick with firefox. Also, what is apple trying to gain? You don't see IE on Macs.

    I have to say, my jaw did drop a bit at how fast it was compared to ie7 and even firefox in most cases. However, it did not have the versatility of firefox that I like. However, this is just the beta version so maybe they'll add more features later.

    I loaded it up. I really don't like the font it uses. Everything is a lot more bold, and the the text isn't as crisp. Compare it next to Firefox, and you can see a large difference. I'm going to un-install it right away.

    And apparently people found tons of security flaws within hours. Beta or not, it's not very close to a final product with so many holes.

    Actually in your case, I can shoot the messenger because Apple released the beta last week and there've been threads about it already.
