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.

There's a big difference between "confident" and "arrogant", and I'm afraid Apple is rather guilty of the latter: Apple has a complete disregard of its competition on Windows, even going so far as to say it won't exist soon enough, and it's touting the superiority of its browser--when it has little to no edge on what other Windows browsers already have.

Safari's compliance with CSS standards alone make it a much better choice than IE.

safari on Mac's compliance... I haven't tried myself, but from everything I've read the Windows version is having trouble rendering the ACID2 test.
