one more thing: safari on windows

Fresh from WWDC 2007 - Wow!

Safari 3 on runs on Windows XP/Vista.

  • 18 Million Safari users
  • Marketshare has climbed to 4.9%
  • IE has 78%, Firefox 15%, others 2%
"What we've got here is the most innovative browser in the world, but also the fastest browser on Windows."

Some benchmarks:
  • javascript: ie 2.4 sec, ff 1.6, saf 0.9
  • ibench html performance ie 4.6 sec, ff 3.7, safari 2.2
"Twice as fast as IE 7, 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2."

Hold your hat, folks. This is going to get interesting. A public beta should be available today from

An early benchmark from a non-Apple source can be found here.
