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.

This is a bit offtopic but...

Does anyone else get a lot of text (most of the time links) simply not rendered at all? On this same page, the title of the news entry, all the menu links on the left on the Ads from Google I can see but the underlined links only display the underlining ut not the text, the text of the news item also (I only see Thom's "Safari on Windows isn't here to take over the Windows browsing market. It's here for the iPhone."), etc.

Is this normal or is it maybe wrongly installed or something?

That sometimes happens on very old browsers; whatever darling-standard-of-the-week OSNews is using isn't implemented on old software. I'm on IE7, it shows up fine to me.

Oh, uh... I'm sorry, what I meant is this is happening to me on Safari 3 on Windows.

I have the same problem. Until solved, Safari is useless for me.

This is an issue related to bold text not rendering on Safari 3. This is an issue with Safari 3, and has NOTHING to do with OSNews. It is related to how Windows renders non-English unicode text or something. I'm having the same problem.

Yes, thank you. I know it's not related to OSNews. It happens in a lot of pages. I just explained the problem using OSNews as an example.

I just wanted confirmation that this is happening on all Safari 3 on Windows, not that my particular installation was corrupted or something.
