Apple Safari 3 Web Browser for Windows

Earlier Apple wooed Windows users by letting Bootcamp install Windows on Intel Powered Mac, now they have announced that the popular Apple web browser Safari will run on Microsoft Windows too. They put up a good case for Firefox and IE users by highlighting the prowess of Safari.

The Apple Safari 3 claims to be the fastest web browser on any platform; Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2! Safari executes JavaScript up to 2.8 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2!

They point to 12 reasons you will love Safari
1. Blazing Performance
2. Elegant User Interface
3. Easy Bookmarks
4. Pop-up Blocking
5. Inline Find
6. Tabbed Browsing
7. SnapBack
8. Forms AutoFill
9. Built-in RSS
10. Resizable Text Fields
11. Private Browsing
12. Security

While browsing through the features, I found some unique features –
# The browser frame is a mere one pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. You see no status bar by default
# Turn on private browsing and Safari won’t store your Google searches, your cookies, the history of sites you?ve visited, your download history, or information from online forms you’ve filled out.
# SnapBack lets you instantly snap back to your original search results or to the top level of any website, even after you’ve browsed down a few levels.
# Safari lets you resize text fields on any website, just by grabbing the corner of the field.
# Safari supports SSL versions 2 and 3, as well as Transport Layer Security (TLS), the next generation of Internet security. Safari lets you use standards-based authentication such as Kerberos single sign-on and X.509 personal certificates, or proprietary protocols like NTLMv2 to log in to secure sites and also supports a variety of proxy protocols.

Download the beautiful Safari Browser and get the Mac experience on your Windows PC. Microsoft and Apple grow closer with this. Remember Microsoft first wireless laser desktop exclusively for Mac users and the Microsoft Virtual PC for Mac Computers. See why people love Mac computers.
