One of the more significant announcements to come out of the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote held yesterday was news that Apple would be bringing the next version of its Safari web browser to Windows XP and Vista.
Safari 3.0, which has gone into public beta, is now available for download and can be used on Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later as well as current builds of the Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. The new version adds features such as increased speed, better search capabilities and the ability to drag tabs wherever they’re needed.
Macworld News actually has a pretty good first look at the new beta, what Apple is trying to do by offering it to other operating systems and what this means. Take a look and see what’s what.
For those of you who might be a bit nervous about moving Safari over to a public beta, Apple has also included an uninstaller program in the download. Running this program should strip the Safari 3.0 beta out of your system and allow you to either download a current version of Safari or use an alternative web browser.
If you’ve had either a positive or negative experience with the Safari 3.0 beta on either Mac OS X or Windows, let us know.
