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.

Just wondering, now that Apple behaves like malware or a trojan if you like where it installs irrelevant stuff without asking the user, how is the Antivirus company reacting to this?

Which one will be first to say they managed to find a cure for the Apple Virus they spread?

"offering Safari 3.1 for download" is not the same as "installs [...] without asking"

It has been the nature of the world for a long time. I see most Vista machines fitted with some trial office and works.
