    "Just One Word: CRAP!"

    June 14, 2007  |   By defwi

    Version: Safari 4.0 beta

    Cons

    I think this time Apple has gone too freaking far. When I used Safari on my brand new Windows vista laptop with 2048MB of ram & a 3GHz CPU it was slower then waking me up on a Monday morning. I can't even consider downloading the final version of Safari for Windows when it is released. IE 7 is better, hell even Internet Explorer 6 is better, and well that is saying something. Firefox, Avant, IE, Netscape, and well every other browser I can think of should be used before this. Hell I'd use Lynx before using Safari. When Microsoft released IE for the Mac it was a flop, and when Apple releases Safari for Windows it WILL become a flop.

    The Bottom Line: Only Use Safari When It Is The End of The World.

    "Not stable,crashes all along."

    June 13, 2007  |   By BMENON

    Version: Safari 4.0 beta

    Pros

    Seemed to be simple and faster than IE,but crashes all along,may be due to Beta version.or unstable in Windows XP SP2?

    Cons

    I use XPSP2.Safari did well at the first start,but when I added a bookmark it crashed saying"sorry we are closing".On restart there were no icons in menubar,menubar&toolbar were blank.Unistalled&reinstalled Setup.exe twice,but still it remained blank and finally I gave up,and removed everything.

    "I think Safari's going to make history, on windows' platforms"

    June 13, 2007  |   By jfeezle

    Version: Safari 4.0 beta

    Pros

    I think it's really great, i don't if because i'm running Xtreme Core 2, it's even better on a mac itself, everythink looks xtremely great, download speed is increase by almost 2%, most of the web sites look habitual, there any difference, only it's a factor of speed and no broken downloadz....

    Everythink look so macintoshy

    Cons

    I don't like the fact that downloads can't be opened automatically, since it's beta, it doesn't answer mouse gesture, like going back and forth with your mouse is not allowed.

    Running WinXP (SP2), Graphics show up in the initial page, but no text appears on the page, no the toolbar, nor the menus. Remember the 6 P's. "Prior planning prevents..."

    "Crashes frequently"

    June 13, 2007  |   By paleonorm

    Version: Safari 4.0 beta

    Pros

    It's very fast in loading pages.

    Cons

    It crashes almost every time it's used. I'll get half way through a project and it will crash. Hopefully Apple will fix this when it comes out of beta.

    "Simple is good."

    June 13, 2007  |   By download-gangsta

    Version: Safari 4.0 beta

    Pros

    It's really simple as actually all of Mac applications. This is for those who like Macs but for some reason are using Windows. Tabbed browsing is supported as in all modern browsers. You can really easily and fast clear the history of websites visited and also there's an option which is called Private Browsing. When it's on, Safari doesn't "remember" anything.

    Cons

    Bookmarks are not as useful as in Firefox or even Opera. Although you can select to use special bookmarks toolbar, but it's not really good looking.
