Safari for Windows – part two

I forgot to add this thought to the previous post about Safari.

The more I think about it the more it seems to me that you will have to have Safari as the interface between the iPhone and your computer. Just like you need iTunes (well there are replacements for that) for your iPod whether you use OSx or XP/Vista, my bet is you will have to have Safari for the iPhone.

Apple releasing it now is to get people used to the idea of a new browser for Windows. I hope the major bugs are fixed because I have read that even the Alpha version was more stable than the released Beta!

Let’s see if I am right when the iPhone is released.

A great review of IE7, FireFox2 and Safari3 is at ArsTech . Apple for some strange reason ignores standard windows operating features like ClearType and the ability to resize windows from any edge. Instead of just porting something over why not write the app as a real native application following the OS’s fonts and features that the users have set for themselves. I don’t understand Apple!
