Apple Apple's first Windows beta release of Safari had some nasty bugs, most importantly one where bold text wouldn't render on non-English versions of Windows. Since the 3.0.2 release has 'fixes for text display, non-English systems', this bug might by fixed. In addition, Security Update 2007-006 for Mac OS 10.3.9 and Mac OS 10.4.9 and later has been released. The update addresses two vulnerabilities in WebKit, one of which could lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution.

What's the problem with metal brushed theme? I don't own a Mac but it is really not an issue for me, if that's the case then I should be hating Microsoft right now because their WMP 11 is a themed-app.

It's not so much the theme (though it looks hideously out of place on Windows) as it is the fact that Apple doesn't follow Microsoft guidelines for menus, active vs inactive window highlighting, etc...they use their own in house paradigms which if you use a Mac, no problem, but I always have to tell newbies where to change Apple application options is (Edit/Preferences on Mac vs Tools/Options on Windows). The guidelines exist for a reason.

"if that's the case then I should be hating Microsoft right now because their WMP 11 is a themed-app."

It's themed for Vista, and IMO it's no less different looking than WMP 10. One of MS's new guidelines is no menu items, or menu items that only appear when you hit Alt (which is configurable in both IE 7 and WMP 11).
