Seems like Apple are selling off bits of their operating system one piece at a time...wonder how long it'll be before we see iMovie or Front Row ported to Windows...

It's still in public beta at the moment, nonetheless it's apparently several times quicker in terms of performance than Opera, Firefox and IE7. I'm downloading it now, I'll post my opinions on its performance when I have time.

It basically does the same stuff that IE 7 does.

Sounds like good news :) I didn't use Safari much (only on some customers' machines while installing their Internet accesses) but I liked it ^^

I've got a Mac, but I don't use Safari :p

Well anyway - from what I've used of it, it's better than any other browser; takes up very little ram, codecs for every type of video, tools to rip audio straight from the net to Audacity or something similar... loads..

But for me, it's all stuff I don't need packed into a fugly interface, so I'll stick with Firefox 3.0 thank you very much :)

Safari was released in 2003 to complement OS X; IE7 was released late 2006.

Personally I've never got on with Safari. I find Firefox and Opera are far superior than both IE and Safari.

There's a big green box on the Firefox homepage that says "Download Firefox - Free"...so let me think...

I use Safari everyday, i find it faster and more responsive than the Mac versions of Firefox or Camino (also made by mozilla). I haven't gotten around the trying the Mac version of Opera yet though.

Firefox just uses way to much ram compared to Safari, same problem camino has. On my Mac they can suck up enough ram it starts slowing my system down, and thats with 768MB ram. They also load pages much slower. I don't have any of those problems with the Windows version though.

Well Firefox still has memory leaks :/ This version of Safari is very unstable though ... they say it's a beta, looks closer to an alpha ...
