Safari Goes Windows

Today Apple released it’s 3.0 version of Safari for Windows XP and Vista, which you can download here.  As part of my design process means trying every browser combination I can think of (which usually means running Virtual PC, VMWare, and about 10 applications at one time), I grabbed it for evaluation purposes.  It’d take a near act of congress to get me to abandon Firefox, but it’s certainly an indication that Apple is trying to expand it’s market share by enticing PC users via actual applications, as opposed to annoying ad campaigns and coffee shop evangelicals.

    I tried it and it literally crashed after 3 pages.  I realize it’s beta but come on.  …Uninstalled right away.

    I’ve been using it off and on all evening and, while it didn’t crash, it did make a lot of snarky comments about my other applications and how much smoother they’d run on a shiny new mac.  Also, it dressed like it was here to mow my lawn.

    I pointed it at Counterstrike and it shut the fuck up.

    It was a bit glitchy with embedded video, but other than that, it actually as smoothly as Firefox, which I should point out also has an issue with embedded video on my system. I’m going to give it another shot in a few months, let them fix up the apparent issues.

    Looks like we’re not the only ones experiencing problems.
