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.

The point that bothered me the most was that OSX users all loathe Safari. Most OSX users I know of either use Safari 99% of the time or at least like it. I use Safari for my default browser when using OSX except for the few sites that have issues with it. Then I fire up either Camino, Firefox or Opera.

I also agree with Thorin that the main reason for the Windows version of Safari is development for the iPhone. I installed it on one of my XP systems and like it, but there is a lot of work yet to do before I would use it as a main browser in Windows.
