Well believe or not, I’m running Safari on Windows [v3 Public Beta]. You can download it from here:
Apple claims that Safari is “the fastest, easiest-to-use web browser in the world” and that it loads pages two times faster than Internet Explorer.
I noticed that this version is not very stable, so you it may crash (it is a beta version after all), but the most important thing is that web developers can test their sites in Safari without buying a Mac.. Overall I’m not switching away from Firefox2.
One last thing, it appears that Silverlight doesn’t work on Safari for Windows although it seems to recognize the plug-in, I guess Microsoft will fix this in the next release of Silverlight (or may be not!!).
Many of Firefox’s settings aren’t exposed through the Tools > Options menu; the only way to change them is to edit them manually by typing about:config in the adress bar.
You will get a list of all firefox settings and extensions. I found a couple of interesting ones, but remember to keep a log of everything you change, or make backups.
