Random Technology Note: Safari for Windows is Pretty Good

Shares

This is an odd post for me. One of the things I hate most about sitting down to a Mac is using the Safari browser, because I am so accustomed to using Firefox. For the past couple of days, though, I have been playing around with the latest (first non-beta) release of Safari for Windows, and I am very impressed.

Pages render beautifully, it’s fast, and it doesn’t seem to suffer from the horrendous memory leaks that plague Firefox. I’m not sure that I can make the switch entirely, as I am attached to some great extensions for Firefox, and I’m not thrilled about the Microsoft approach to installing Safari Apple has adopted, but I have to admit to being impressed.

Give it a spin.
