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.

Apple makes money off every entry into the built-in Google search bar.

The $100 million figure is only an estimated guess, but Apple does make money off Safari. It's a no-brainer, really - Mozilla includes a Google search bar in Firefox too.

Now i wonder: Why doesnt Konqueror get that cash for including google search? .. that would have been a great anouncement from Google at the KDE4 release event if you ask me.

At a guess because Apple and the Mozilla Corporation were doing buisness while the KDE folk were developing software?

What, you don't know this fundamental basic tenet of humankind? ;)

Those who do all the work are compensated by just a tiny fraction of what those get that then take that work, wrap it up nicely, smile at you, and take your cheque.
