Safari BETA

I have been trying out Safari for Windows XP over the past couple of days, and my initial reaction is one of absolute loathing.

According to Mr Jobs, HTML and Javascript loading times are nearly cut in half from the ever popular FireFox. This may be so, I have not tried their testing program, but what use is this when communication times are so slow!

From what I’ve seen, Safari takes a lot longer to process the actual request, making the improvement of HTML loading times un-noticeable.

If Apple want to dominate this market, at least put out a piece of software better or equal to the competition! However, in my opinion: the layout of Safari for Windows puts it on a par with, or even behind, IE7

Safari on Windows

Hasn’t Mr Jobs just shot himself in the foot?

He always bangs on about how “crap” Microsoft is… but now decides to release a version of his browsers for Windows…

Hypocrite.

Still… if you can’t beat them – join them πŸ˜€
