Safari 3 For Windows First Look

Now that WWDC is over, it’s time to check out the aftermath.

We grabbed Safari and were hit, quite unsurprisingly, with some initial errors. Considering Safari for Windows is still in its beta release, most of these problems will eventually be ironed out.

Although Steve seemed to be proud of Safari’s benchmarks, loading times for pages have remained mostly the same. However, Flash speed has improved and browsing videos on YouTube or MetaCafe requires less patience. Bottom line? Not ready for prime time. It’s a good attempt, but as far as I could see there was very little in ways of improvement over IE7 or even Firefox. In short, wait for the final release.
