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.

What a crap article. These aren't reasons, just opinions and prejudice. Pop into your nearest bar. A couple of dozen other "reasons" could probably be rustled up from assembled beer-heads in a matter of minutes.

If someone wants to run Safari on Windows, why shouldn't they and what business is it of anyone else? Market share certainly isn't a guide. Safari could settle at a tiny share of the PC market and still be judged a success given the size of the market for Apple products.

I'm sure Apple have good reasons for releasing Safari on Windows, but whatever they are, they're not in this article. One presumes this is all to lay some ground for the iPhone and probably other things in the Apple pipeline. But who knows.

Yes, I totally agree with you. That is the dumbest article I have ever read. Safari's main target is iPhone, end of the story.
