‘Safari 3.1 on Windows: a True Competitor Arrives (Seriously)’

“While pundits have been lamenting the fact that Apple’s ‘software update’ program on Windows is now pushing Safari 3.1 to users, we thought we’d check out Safari 3.1 to find out if Apple has made any real progress on the Windows version of this browser. After all, it’s about the software, right? We put the Safari 3 beta on Windows through the wringer last summer, and we weren’t too terribly impressed. The problems were significant, such that we’d have a hard time recommending the browser to any Windows user. As of last summer, Firefox was still the Windows browser of choice here at Ars. Have things improved for Safari? Wow, have they.”
