Apple Apple has released the first version of its browser, Safari, for Windows. Safari 3.1, which was launched on Tuesday, will run on Windows XP or Vista and, of course, Mac OSX. Apple released a beta for the Windows-supporting version in June last year. Apple has claimed that the browser is the fastest available for Windows. In a Tuesday statement, Cupertino said it "loads web pages 1.9 times faster than [Internet Explorer] 7 and 1.7 times faster than Firefox 2 [and] runs JavaScript up to six times faster than other browsers". Don't think you have Safari for Windows installed? You might want to check again.

OK, I will download it, and try it... May be... Or not. The problem is, I just fail to see a compelling reason to use anything else for Internet browsing, other than IE7 or FireFox. For those who like to be different, there is always Opera, Konqueror... So my question would be - why? What is Apple trying to accomplish with this?
