Apple Apple has released the first version of its browser, Safari, for Windows. Safari 3.1, which was launched on Tuesday, will run on Windows XP or Vista and, of course, Mac OSX. Apple released a beta for the Windows-supporting version in June last year. Apple has claimed that the browser is the fastest available for Windows. In a Tuesday statement, Cupertino said it "loads web pages 1.9 times faster than [Internet Explorer] 7 and 1.7 times faster than Firefox 2 [and] runs JavaScript up to six times faster than other browsers". Don't think you have Safari for Windows installed? You might want to check again.

If you've already got Firefox installed, you're not the target market (unless you're a web developer).

It's all those people who've got iTunes (because they have iPods), but haven't ventured outside of the world of Internet Explorer yet (and personally, as a web developer, the quicker they gravitate towards something, anything that's actually standards-compliant--be it FF, Safari or Opera--the better).
