Apple claims that more than 1 million copies of Safari for Windows were downloaded in the first 48 hours since the free public beta was made available on Monday.

The announcement follows the first update for the new browser that was released late Thursday, which fixes some early reported bugs.

Safari 3 renders web pages up to twice as fast as IE 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2, based on the iBench tests, according to Apple.. The browser supports HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java.

Safari 3 for Windows requires Windows XP or Windows Vista, a minimum of 256 MB of memory and a system with at least a 500 MHz Intel Pentium processor.

Hi
Apple claims..................Heard that before
Safari is awful. IE7 & FF upto 3 x quicker. Opera 2x.
Safari also has problems with Vista 64 & posting on some forums.
Security is riddled with flaws.
My advice .....just don't go there.

Probably a good portion of these people are running iMac's and Parallels with Windows XP and trying Safari there.

Yeah, I agree. They must finish it well if they want it to be competitor to FF and IE.

Finish it, hell!!!  They better innovate and provide fresh ideas and direction for the web browser... anything short of that and it won't even take a fraction of a percentage away from IE and Firefox users... And though I don't use it, Opera really isn't too bad and has some nice features.  I'm just a fan of open source...
