Safari 3 for Windows


I’m not sure if anyone else heard, but the latest beta build of Apple’s Safari 3 web browser is available on both Windows (XP and Vista) and Mac. I just downloaded it to test out now. It seems like more of the same, and I can’t notice any big differences from previous versions of the browser on OSX, which has both pros and cons. I have heard some people complain about the way the interface looks in Windows, but I personally think it looks slick. My only two real complaints are 1.) Ctrl + Tab and Ctrl + Shift + Tab will not switch between your open tabs like in every other browser. Instead you have to use Ctrl + Shift + [ and Ctrl + Shift + ], which is annoying. 2.) Clicking the scroll wheel will not allow you to scroll by simply moving the mouse.

Other than that, I think it seems fairly decent so far. I’m sure most people aren’t going to be willing to give up Firefox to use it, but it’s always nice to have options.

that is fairly awesome.
