Apple Logo Safari 

If you haven’t heard the news Apple has released it’s award winning Safari Web Browser for use on PCs.  What is the world coming to?  Here are the Windows requirements:

Windows Requirements

  • Windows XP or Vista
  • At least 256MB of RAM
  • 500Mhz Pentium-class processor or better

I downloaded the 28.1 meg file in less than a minute thanks to Apple’s fast servers. Installation took about 7 minutes on my 2.5 gHz Vaio. As soon as it installed it downloaded an additional security update.

I am looking forward to testing it in the next few weeks. I’ll let you know what I find in an upcoming post.
