I am so happy today! Last night I found out Safari 3 was released for Public Beta for both Mac and PC.
Download Link : http://www.apple.com/safari/download/
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en) AppleWebKit/522.11.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Safari/522.11.3
Finally, after years of waiting, I am able to test my work and products on Safari and by all accounts what you see on PC is what you'll see on a Mac.
The browser is XP and Vista compatible and uses the familiar Apple chrome interface. The browsing (although slow at first) was suprisingly snappy and I havent encountered any serious issues yet.
The only issue that kind of bugs me is that it is not compatible with a
duel dual ( Thanks M. Katz ;-) ) monitor shared desktop environment. You can drag it to your other monitor but if you go full screen, it disapears completely and you have to close the browser. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update.
The best feature is how text on a page looks. Its beautiful. Beats the pants of Mozilla and IE and is similar (but nicer) than Operas text rendering. Not sure I like the extra bold though. Check out this post for more insight and some good points : Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering
I can finally get CF_FileManager, CFForumExpress, Teamwork CMS, UDI and all our other products fully Safari compatible.
Thank you Apple!!
