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 think the more browsers out there the better.

I would think it would make the web sites (html and css) better as well as the browsers.

The important thing is to take share away from Internet Explorer, the single thing that is ruining the internet. I'm tired of reading books on css and html saying how to do something only to have a section at the end of each chapter saying how to hack it to work in IE.

It used to be that you would code for IE and you're getting to 95% of the people on the net....Don't know where it is at now, but once it falls enough people will have to start coding to standards and hope their visitors are using a standards compliant browser. It should also help the browsers, they'll be competing each other for compliance, not gimmicks and features.
