Apple introduces Safari for Windows
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.

Safari 3 supports all modern Internet standards so users can view websites as they were meant to be seen, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java. Safari software updates are delivered seamlessly through Apple's Software Update application, which automatically checks for updates.

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.
