Apple We're a little late with this one, but hey, I have to sleep too. In the middle of last night, Apple released version 5 of its Safari web browser for both Mac OS X and Windows, and it contains some very interesting improvements, including an extensions framework.

I'm I the only one annoyed that Safari for Windows is 50MB download that is bundled with Quicktime and Bonjour? What total crap. We'll ignore the fact that the UI was almost entirely ripped from Chrome, except for tab placement (Which they tried, and failed miserably at, and fixed it before Safari 4 went final).


It's a big download with QT. But, on the download page you can choose one of two Windows Safari versions for download - one with Quicktime and one without (saves about 20MB). Bonjour is coming in either one, although you can choose to not have that bothersome app installed during setup.

Regarding Safari ripping off Chrome's UI... Safari was released 5 years before the first beta of Chrome (back in 2003 on Panther) and overall UI design for Safari hasn't changed significantly since then (just tweaks).

Take a look at a screenshot of safari 3, then safari 4, on windows. Safari 4 came well after chrome, and it shows.

Also, when I downloaded Safari last night, having it bundled with QuickTime was the only option available. The standalone download was added some time today, so that, at least, has been corrected ;)
