The Fourth Horseman - part II

I played about a bit with Safari for Windows and started to find the UI to be somewhat annoying. As the UI is usually the thing that makes or breaks a browser for me (aside from standards support of course) I just thought I'd list my pet peeves with Safari.

Hopefully the UI is still a work in progress and Apple's final release of Safari for Windows will resolve many of these.

Also found a couple of non-UI issues:

I'm sure these will also be resolved in due time.

The Fourth Horseman

Apple has released a beta of Safari for Windows!

Of course the first question I needed answering was: does it cope with Voidwars? The answer is a resounding yes. Yay!

For web developers on the Windows platform the release of Safari is of course great news, as it's finally possible to test compatibility without owning a Mac (and of course more developers testing their websites on Safari is good news for Apple).

(Yes I am of course aware that for the most part it essentially uses the same rendering engine as Konqueror)
