“Is Safari coming to Windows? There have been rumors floating around for a while that Apple might be porting its Cocoa language to the Windows platform which would allow WebKit, the engine behind Safari, to run natively in Windows,” Scott Gilbertson blogs for Wired News.

“With the announcement of the iPhone the possibility of a Window’s WebKit port does seem like it would make sense… Some people think Apple would be better off not porting its software to Windows and keeping the ‘Mac experience’ unique to their own platform, but as Apple becomes less a computer manufacturer and more a device manufacturer it might make more sense to strive for interoperability.”
