Internet & Networking "Apple's Safari is making its way to the Windows platform with the serious intention of making a dent in the market. As brilliant as the people are at Apple, I can't help but laugh at their, to put it politely, delusion. Before I ramble on too much, here are my five reasons why Safari will fail on the Windows platform." My take: Safari on Windows isn't here to take over the Windows browsing market. It's here for the iPhone.

I like safari, it works well and its quick... on the mac

On windows though all the fonts rendered look like a bad jpeg... hopefully this will be improved

The reason it won't catch on to start with is simple, no import of bookmarks from other browsers, this to me is an incredible omission

People will use safari if they have to... after all why would someone download itunes when there is a perfectly good media player included?

When I installed Safari and I checked my bookmarks I saw a folder for Imported Internet Explorer bookmarks and one for Imported Firefox bookmarks. Maybe you mean manual importation, but I have all of my bookmarks imported on the first start up of the browser.
