Apple’s Safari Browser Now Available for PCs

June 11th, 2007 · No Comments · Computers

How interesting.  Today Apple announced that the Safari Web Browser (previously only available on the Macintosh) would be made available for the PC.  No charge.

Apple claims that the Safari browser is twice as fast as other browsers.  Currently, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer dominates the browser scene with a 78% share, with Mozilla’s Firefox coming in second at about 15%.

What makes this particularly interesting is that Apple’s upcoming iPhone (released June 29) features the Safari browser.  This has been an ongoing trend at Apple, making its services and software available for PC users, beginning with the iPod and iTunes music store.

A cunning strategic move to attract users to the Macintosh?  Only time will tell.
