    Default For those interested in the next Safari beta

    You can down load it here for PC if you haven't given up testing it.

    Let the Apple developers know what you think and if it works any better than the last release.

    I might have a look at it when I get home.
    Mabix, if you want to be really helpfull since you obviously know what your looking at, how about passing on the flaws you find to the Apple developers so that they can fix them.

    Not like they'd ever listen. Best and safest browser indeed. Steve Jobs needs to remember to take Ecstasy AFTER the speech, not before.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    I think it is called a process of gradual refinement.

    As well as giving Apple and the iPhone developers a bigger platform for developing windows apps in Safari for all the business users who will be moving over to AT&T

    The Coming Battle: Apple's iPhone vs. Corporate IT Departments
    The battle lines are being drawn, and they're not between Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT) or AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ).

    They're between the managers of corporate Information Technology (IT) departments, who insist on total control of any device that connects to their network, and gadget-oriented users, some of them very high up in the corporate food chain, who just want their iPhones.

    There is at least 5 other similar articles on Yahoo news today.

    So when Apple do something and it sucks it's called gradual refinement. But when Microsoft do something and it sucks it's called a piece of s**t.

    Go the level playing field.

    The difference being that Apple does it a lot faster and gets it right much sooner.
    In the case of Safari I think they are doing it to give the iPhone developers a PC web platform rather than to attack IE's browser market share since Firefox is already doing a very good job of that.
    Myself, I use Firefox on both platforms as do a lot of other Mac users although there are a number who are happy with Safari. I think that Apple and Google are going to be working together to create a lot of apps for the iPhone using Safari - MS on the other hand was looking at buying Yahoo but I don't think they would get much benefit from that compared to the Apple-Google partnership.
