Safari for Windows

Today I found out that Safari 3 was now in beta for Windows.

Great I thought, it's worth a run around the paddock. Downloaded and installed.

It definitely looks impressive compared to the earlier versions I'd tried on the Mac, pages load real fast, it's a tiny download 8mb in size, imports all of the existing plug-ins from both Firefox and IE.

A few problems, it's a bit of a memory hog. Other small niggling things, it doesn't import bookmarks, and doesn't really remember other settings, worst of all, there's no Add-ons (like Firefox), if there are, it's not well documented.

Its early days, but definitely big potential as another alternative to IE on the desktop. Only time will tell.
