Safari now available for Windows!#1

Apple has made the vastly superior Safari browser available for Windows now. I've been using Firefox but it's gotten really glitchy lately.

I downloaded and tried Safari last night and I love it.

If you're unhappy with the glitches of the IEs, Operas and Firefoxs of the world it's worth a look.

I have Safari, and prefer Firefox.

Granted, Safari is not compatible with most website hosts...

Is this a joke or does everyone just not keep up with the news?

Safari has been available for Windows since June of 2007.

I was going to say...
I had it a while ago (and I use Windows) but I switched back to Firefox.

My computer just downloaded Safari all by itself. Maybe that's why everyone thinks its new.

I'm on a Mac and my Firefox has been whacked out too. When I use it for a while, new pages I open start messing up and I have to close it and re-open it. It's not a big deal. I will always prefer Firefox to Safari.

Safari doesn't have any tabs. Sometimes I have 9 different tabs opened, and Firefox keeps it organized.

Good for them though. Apple is obviously not threatened by Windows anything.

iTunes is completely compatible for Windows..iphones + ipods..now Safari.

Windows has never made a decent Windows Media Player for Mac, so we're stuck with a crappy plug-in used in Quicktime. The Internet Explorer for Mac was made 6 years ago, probably.

and Mac users can use Windows on the Mac OS, but not the other way round.

I'm a Mac user and I don't like Firefox or Safari. Every so often, Safari will hang and will not load certain pages. Firefox is just a royal pain. It's always crashing.
I have yet to find a browser on either platform that I truly like. I prefer Camino if I'm using a MAC.

Why would a Windows user want to use MAC OS anyway? teehee

"Safari doesn't have any tabs."

No wonder you don't like Safari, you don't know how to use it. Safari has had tabs for years.

I never downloaded a newer version of Safari after I got my iMac in 2006, I didn't know. Cool it.

Seriously? 75.1%? Maybe that is why people are so unhappy!

I've been a happy little Firefox user for quite some time. I despise IE. What are the advantages to using Safari? I don't want to bother learning a whole new setup unless there are real advantages. Can anyone give me the skinny?
