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.

"Seeing as Safari is secure on the Mac, the Windows bugs were obviously introduced during porting. Not knowing exactly how that process goes, I can't really comment on how "elementary" these mistakes are. "

There is no real evidence that Safari is secure on the mac, it is OS X that is providing the security for Safari, because of it's Next/BSD/Unix heritage and the fact that there is no real incentive for malware writers to bother with OS X. To state that the errors were introduced during porting is just nonsense
