Hi,

I thought it might be interesting to learn that Safari seems to be making inroads with regards to the browser wars - 11 million downloads in three days is not bad!

For me though, what is really interesting is that more than half of the downloads were from Windows users. So what do you guys think of Safari's importance going forward? I am thinking that it is now part of the big three:

  • IE
  • Firefox
  • Safari

Glad to see it. Unfortunately number three usually is way behind in the numbers. For example, Coke, Pepsi, Royal Crown or Bud, Miller, Coors. Anyway, it should be a plus for Apple if it helps convert windows users into mac users. Will this speed up the release of windows 7? Should be interesting to watch.

I like Safari 4... they added a built in spell checker, built in a speed dial type view for your favorites so you can have a bunch of web sites onscreen and just click what you want to visit... no complaints so far... then again it has been but 25 hours...

Just checked the changes...

Acid 2 support
first browser to pass Acid 3
HTML 5 support
CSS 3 web fonts
CSS 3 Canvas support
SVG 1.1 support

I'm a Safari fan, it seems to have less issues than FF, although not as feature-rich.

Yea. Firefox still has memory leak issues on the Mac.

On PC though, it seems to work fine.

I think he meant to say:

... still, this cannot happen too soon.

Just my guess.
