    I recently downloaded Safari 3.0 for my MacBook. The new features are pretty good. The reason I don't like FireFox is that it's not supportive of my comp. I still think it's a great browser, just not for Mac. I also use Camino which is FireFox but formatted for Macs.

    It can be used for Windows? I might wait til there's hopefully an updated non-buggy version, then I'll give it a bash (no homo).

    Well I read "Safari 3, Apple's first multiplatform web browser is now available for download by the public."
    And assumed it would be made for Mac's.. would make more sense.

    Yes and it will be my default browser once a non-bugged, secure version is released. It freezes and is slow and unresponsive at times in it's beta form.

    I love safari for windows. I now use it 95% of the time. The only thing that annoys me about using it on this site, is that the drop-down menu doesn't work when I click 'extras' like it does on IE7. Annoying.

    Actually safari is 100% standard compliance, where as firefox is only about 95%.
    Yup more developers, that also means more junk, safari has good extensions, firefox has some amazing extensions but trying to find those in the mess of all the crap ones is hard.
    Safaris market share can be seen here
    http://marketshare.hitslink.com/repo...pcustom=Safari
    As of may its exactly 4.82

    Safari is not 100% standard compliant, otherwise pages wouldn't need to have user agent detection and change the coding for it.
    Open source does make a difference for the end user because it means bugs and vulnerabilities are discovered and patched sooner.
    Your last statement sounds like you are saying less is better? No one forces you to install the junk firefox extensions.
