More than 1 million copies of Apple’s Safari for Windows browser were downloaded in the first 48 hours after the free public beta was made available recently

Apple Inc has announced that more than 1 million copies of its Safari for Windows browser were downloaded in the first 48 hours after the free public beta was made available last

Monday, 11 June.

Safari 3 is described by Apple as the world’s fastest and easiest-to-use browser. It is available as a free download at http://www.apple.com/safari.

According to Apple, Safari 3 is the fastest browser running on Windows, rendering web

pages up to twice as fast as IE 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2, based on the industry standard iBench tests.

Safari 3 supports all modern Internet standards including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Java. Safari updates are delivered seamlessly through Apple’s Software Update, and the first update for Safari for Windows Public Beta, which fixes some early reported bugs, was released this week.

Safari 3 for Windows requires Windows XP or Windows Vista, a minimum of 256 MB of memory and a system with at least a 500 MHz Intel Pentium processor.

Bear in mind that performance will vary based on system configuration, network connection and other factors. (Testing was conducted on an iMac 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo system running Windows XP, with 1GB of RAM.)
