Safari for Windows Public Beta

I read with great interest the news titled "Safari for Windows Public Beta Downloads Top 1 Million in First 48 Hours".

Apple just announced on June 14 that more than 1 million copies of Safari™ for Windows were downloaded in the first 48 hours since the free public beta was made available on Monday.

Safari 3 is available as a free download at Apple's website here.

Apple claims that 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. Testing conducted on an iMac 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo system running Windows XP, with 1GB of RAM.

Safari features include SnapBack™, one-click access to an initial search query; resizable text fields; and private browsing to ensure that information about an individual’s browsing history isn’t stored.

Safari 3 supports all modern Internet standards including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java. The first update for Safari for Windows Public Beta which fixes some early reported bugs was released already.

The final version of Safari 3 will be available as a free download to Mac OS X Tiger and Windows users in October.

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

I will give it a try. I have just downloaded it. What about you?

  3. Safari beta memang masih banyak bugnya. Dulu pertama kali coba fontnya error, dan untung sudah bisa memperbaikinya sendiri. Jika ada yang mengalami kejadian yang sama, saya sudah mempublikasikan cara mengatasinya.

  7. I downloaded Safari and tried it for a few weeks just to see what it is like. Now it is just sitting on my desktop idle. I haven't touched it for like three days now. Back to Firefox and Google Chrome beta.
