Safari for Windows Public Beta – one million downloads in first 48 hours


Kat has already given the Safari for Windows browser a thorough going over – and it sounds like she’s not the only one, with Apple announcing that one million copies of Safari for Windows were downloaded in the first 48 hours since the public beta was made available on Monday.

If you’ve missed the hype, Apple claims it’s the fastest browser now running on Windows, rendering web pages up to twice as fast as IE 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2. It supports all modern internet standards including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java, with updates are delivered through Apple’s Software Update. In fact, the first update for Safari for Windows, which fixes some early reported bugs, was released on 13th June.

If you want a copy, you can download it for free from here.
