Remember the unfettered public joy when Apple released its iTunes app for PC? Well, there were street parties round my way, anyway. Well, there’s a new reason to break out the bunting: today, Apple announced plans to bring its Safari browser out for Windows XP and Vista.

Safari already has a market share of 5% according to Apple – that’s 18 million users – and Steve Jobs was certainly bullish onstage at WWDC today, promising that the Windows version of Safari is twice as fast as Internet Explorer, and 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.

It’ll have Firefox-esque draggable tabs, a built-in RSS reader, and Google and Yahoo goodness built in too. The public beta is available now for PC users, with Mac owners able to get their copy as a free download in October.
