    Cool... Konquerer for Windows (sorta).

    Safari is based off KDE's Konqueror (KDE is a desktop manager for Linux and Unix).

    Personally, I'll stick with Firefox (which is what I use in Windows and Linux), but there is nothing wrong with choice.

    I've tried it... I know it's a beta but they need to work on it... a lot!

    It crashed few times and didn't display pages correctly. Plus read this article.

    Don't like it, I'll stick with Firefox.

    Why don't we just finish the job by flushing our brains down the toilet?

    Post Safari web browser

    I would try it but in the PC I commonly use at the internet café, there is no Service Pack 2 but 1, so Safari will not install on this PC.

    I would like to check it. I use Firefox, of course, but I would love to try Safari.

    Lightbulb News about Safari

    From Slashdot:

    Safari for Windows Downloaded Over 1 Million Times

    Posted by CowboyNeal on Saturday June 16, @11:05AM
    from the popularity-contests dept.

    ClaraBow writes
    "Apple reports that it took Apple just two days to reach 1 million downloads of its newest Safari Web browser for Windows. If these downloads manifested into regular Safari users, then we just might have a third major browser on the Windows platform. If Safari can obtain a 10% market share on Windows, then it would further weaken IE's position and give standards-based browsers more leverage with developers."
    I have read somewhere that security problems detected on the first day were corrected in a new version. Check here.

    Also: Apple brings Safari to Windows, at MacWorld.com.
