    Apple have announced Safari is now available for download for Windows today.They claim it is 2x faster than other browsers out there, time will tell.

    Crashed on me first time I ran it but seems fine now

    Edit: make that 3 more crashes, doesn’t work very well with tv-links and stage6 it seems :oops:

    Just trying it out, page rendering does seem exceptionally fast. Yet to crash.

    Safari, a big giant meh as far as I’m concerned.

    In terms of Apple apps give me Omnigraffle and I’ll be happy.

    Crashed a lot for me on simple things like bookmarking or setting the homepage but I guess by the end of the week a host of bug fixes will be out so I will be nice for now and reserve judgement.
    (Had better be in one update and the version numbers better not keep going up each week)

    Page rendering was very fast but what worries me is what RTE are reporting "Apple will distribute Safari software as part of its iTunes online store which sells music, films and other content for the company’s iPod players". Nooooooo! You muppets this is going to be the same anticompetitive crap all over again – If you buy and ipod you get safari. Litigation, Litigation, Litigation.

    Yes, everyone bundles, its the way of things. I insta-unticked other software it wanted to install, as I sure wont have itunes on my machine, one of the worst pieces of software out there.

    Anyone know what has Opera got going for it these days? I know it is on some handled devices and consoles but is there any merit to downloading a PC version after the hype years back?

    I’ve used Flock, Opera, IE7 and various other browsers recently, sick of Firefox’s bloat. Opera is decent enough has a built-in torrent engine, the speed-dial feature is nice too but overall it doesn’t live up to Firefox IMO

    Safari Beta 3.0.1 released today. That added 0.0.1 had better be good (another 9.9 mb).
