Today I installed Apple Safari on my Windows Vista installation. The web browser made by Apple has been released for Windows rather recently, and this will be the first time I have ever used it.
What is amazing is how much it mimics Mozilla Firefox in it’s design. Almost everything is the same as Firefox, which I found ironic, seeing as Apple has been thought to be the leader in all areas of computing. Of course, hype does not make up for actual quality. So far, the browser has been working well, and I have not experienced any issues thus far.
There is only one thing lacking:
A “Home” button on the toolbar. Instead, it is under the “History” menu, which is very confusing at first, and a hindrance to getting around in the browser. I may find a way around this, but overall it is not a huge issue for me.
For those wondering, I will be participating in the Firefox Download Day to get my favorite browser of choice, Mozilla Firefox 3. I’ll also be moving to Thunderbird Mail. Windows Mail is having an issue where it says that the current language (and default language) English, is not available when using spellcheck. Thank goodness for WUBI, or else I would be stuck without a Linux installation to save me from such annoyances!
