Talking tech since 2003

Alright, another browser to add to the list. Now lets see – we have the ever popular Firefox, the scrutinized Internet Explorer, the known-but-not-so-well-known Opera, and now the elegant Safari. Of course, those are not the only ones out there but they are the most used I would say. In this post I’m going to try and give a different perspective of this topic. There are probably tons of blog posts already either bashing Safari, praising Safari, or perhaps going on about Steve Jobs. Anyway, here’s how I see it.

We now have another web browser for Windows which was previously only a Mac compatible browser. So no we ask ourselves why would Apple release the Safari browser for Windows? Well, perhaps, they wanted to take a jab at Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, or try and lure people over, or get a better hold in the browser market, or maybe, just maybe, they want people to develop their sites for the Safari browser as well. I think that’s where they were going. With the iPhone coming out with a full version of Safari – they want web developers to develop sites for specifically the iPhone and the just the browser in general. I know when I use a Mac and Safari at school some sites look like crap.

Also, I’ve seen people going on and on about how they’ve already found bugs and exploits in the browser. Great. Good job. You’re supposed to – it’s a Beta piece of software. That allows Apple to improve it. Personally, I don’t see why people jump on stuff like that. I’m not a Mac fan boy or any fan boy for that matter – I just like to give stuff a shot and try not to take sides. I’m going to mess with Safari, have you tried it? Let me know what you think – leave a comment!
