Safari for Windows

I've been saying for ages that Apple could and should develop Safari, its fast and feature-full web browser, for Windows. Now they've done it! There's a public beta of Safari 3 for Windows XP or Vista, as well as for Mac OS X, downloadable now.

http://www.apple.com/safari/

The market share of Internet Explorer is way down, sapped mostly by people downloading the much better and more secure Firefox, but I can certainly see Apple grabbing a chunk of browser share (beyond the 5% simply from Mac Safari users) with this. Among other things, it's way faster than IE, and also faster than Firefox.

If you're a Windows user who doesn't need to use IE for compatibility with crufty web applications that don't work properly with standards, this is probably worth downloading and trying.
