Apple has just released version 3.1 of its Safari web browser, which it claims is the fastest web browser currently available for both Mac and PC.
No mention of any additional built-in security measures, now available in Firefox, IE7/8, and several other browsers. Also, the lack of easy customisation via plug-ins may still be seen as a disadvantage by power users who like lots of additional functions and features.
“Safari 3.1 for Mac and Windows is blazingly fast, easy to use and features an elegant user interface,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “And best of all, Safari supports the latest audio, video and animation standards for an industry-leading Web 2.0 experience.”
It’s available now as a free download.
