Apple has introduced Safari 3, claiming it is the world's fastest and easiest-to-use web browser for both Windows and Mac PCs.
The company says Safari 3 is the fastest browser running on Windows, based on the industry standard iBench tests, rendering web pages up to twice as fast as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.
Safari 3 features bookmarks, tabbed browsing and a built-in RSS reader. The public beta is available now as a free download.
Other Safari features now available to Windows users include SnapBack, one-click access to an initial search query; resizable text fields; and private browsing to ensure that information about an individual's browsing history isn't stored.
The final version of Safari 3 will be available as a feature in the upcoming Mac OS X version 10.5 Leopard, and will be available as a free download to Mac OS X Tiger and Windows users in October.
