“Safari on Windows looks pretty much like Safari on the Mac, save for the shape and positioning of the close, minimize and zoom buttons. Other than that, it’s nearly identical. The feature sets are the same, as well, from bookmark organization to the built-in RSS reader. Even the text renders the same, though there’s debate over whether that’s good or bad. And as you’d expect, the menus — which show up in the menu bar on Macs — are in their proper Windows location at the top of the Safari browser window,” Mike DeAgonia reports for Computerworld.
“I downloaded and installed Safari on both Windows XP and Vista, using Parallels’ Desktop for Mac on an Intel-based MacBook and a Mac mini,” DeAgonia reports.
“Safari represents another move by Apple to get its highly-touted software in front of people who may never have heard of Safari, much less tried out Apple’s other apps or hardware. Woo them with a few well-crafted programs such as Safari or iTunes, and — Jobs no doubt hopes — you can win them to the OS itself,” DeAgonia reports. “And when Apple puts that same well-crafted app — Safari — on what may be the hottest must-have device of the year, the iPhone, it reinforces the big-picture message: Apple suddenly seems to be everywhere.”
