Safari 3 beta - Apple's new web browser for Windows

review from ClifNotes, Jun 2007, permalink Web Browser

 

I see new gadgets on the web and I just have to try them. Safari web browser is no different. The first thing the website tells you is how much faster Safari is. They aren't kidding though. It is pretty darned quick.

 

I tried it out for awhile and I struggled with it trying to find all of the shortcut keys for doing the things I normally do. I was surprised that I couldn't find any shortcuts for forward and back. What are they thinking? I was ready to uninstall it right after that.

 

I also struggled with the tabs in Safari. There only seemed to be one spot to set them up and no matter what I did, sometimes new instances of Safari would pop up instead of a new browser tab.

 

If you decide to try Safari out, I'm sure you'll be impressed with the speed. However, there are more things a web browser should do than just get you where you are going. It's going to take a lot of work from Apple before I give up on Firefox and start using Safari.

 

Quote from the website

The fastest web browser on any platform, Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.

 

Safari’s clean, sleek look lets you focus on the web instead of your browser. The browser frame is a mere one pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. You see no status bar by default — a blue progress bar fills the address field as the page loads — giving you more room to browse and view the web.
