Safari for Windows... thoughts?

I found it weird that my Apple Updates was telling me that Safari is available for download for Windows... which again, I'm running Windows XP. I decided to try Safari out just to see what's going on with it. I can legitimately say that to me, the browser is faster. I'm not sure if I'm ready to give up Firefox or not... so I'm really interested to hear what other users think about this Apple - Windows crossover.

Thoughts?

I tried safari for windows and thought it was really bad, I assume it works better on mac then windows...I also couldn't stand the lack of features

anyway, I know plenty of people think it's the best browser you can use

last time i used it, it was smidge buggy, and from what i hear MS may block the way Apple is pushing the way safari is installed

I did note that every single time I open Safari and then close it, I get one of those referenced memory error popups. I also noted that it's a bit of a memory hog... My firefox can drain memory over time, but Safari takes about 140mb of memory when first opening.

I was prompted for this last night by Apple Update as well. After a few obscentities, I quickly un-checked the box and closed the update.

IE FTW!!!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
