Press Release:Apple Safari tops 1 million

Safari 3 is the world’s fastest and easiest-to-use browser, and is available as a free download at the Apple website.

Safari 3 is the fastest browser running on Windows, rendering web pages up to twice as fast as IE 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2, based on the industry standard iBench tests. Safari 3 supports all modern Internet standards including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java. Safari updates are delivered seamlessly through Apple’s Software Update, and the first update for Safari for Windows Public Beta which fixes some early reported bugs was released last night (13th June).

Safari 3 for Windows requires Windows XP or Windows Vista, a minimum of 256Mb of memory and a system with at least a 500 MHz Intel Pentium processor.

Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital media revolution with its iPod portable music and video players and iTunes online store, and will enter the mobile phone market this year with its revolutionary iPhone.

Its more buggy than Firefox & IE7 put together and when I read that security holes have already been found in Safari I uninstalled it straight away.

Not a nice experience, I'm back to using Firefox now

Warning to Windows PC users, Both Win XP & Vista.

Have just finished testing Safari on both Vista & XP, The Vista PC is a 64 bit machine.

This program is unstable, Thats when it works at all, OK it's a beta version, But even a beta should actually work, It has way to many issues, bug's, And other anomalies in it's current state.

Even the on-line Demo failed to work.

Having uninstalled it from both system, I can say that there appears to be no lasting damage to the system, In my case IE7 back up and running great as ever.

Not a happy Cat Sad

Cheers Mike, all donations appreciated, The funny thing is how The billing is for how many downloads have taken place in the time, But no mention of how many have been Uninstalled.

That's advertising for you Smile .

Safari look a ringer for Firefox eve though it is more buggy.
Are Apple fobbing us of with an old re branded version of Firefox

Maybe the reason for the claimed 1 million downloads is they are counting people who already have firefox or ... it's included in evey itunes download.

Safari is based on Webkit - a browser 'base' if you will. It's entirely different code to the mozilla browser, but built in the same style.

I kinda like it, bit wierd to get used to, but not a bad browser by all means. Something to keep an eye on me thinks Wink

It's only crashed on me once, and I'm running Vista Ultimate 64bit...
