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 100 million downloads of iTunes a day.
iTunes comes bundled on some manufacturers machines in Europe.

Firefox gets 50m a day. Just by including Safari with iTunes, 100m people a day will be unwillingly downloading Safari. This is inherently wrong, because those 50m downloads of Firefox are willing participants who know what they're getting.

The Mozilla blogger's comments about Steve Jobs bleak view of the Internet refelects very much on Microsoft's view of the net when It was just them vs. Netscape, with Netscape with the larger share. They killed netscape by bundling IE, and Steve Jobs showed on stage that Firefox, Opera and all other browsers did not exist in their desired view of the Internet.

Those numbers cannot be accurate. I think a day must = a year?
