A few hours back, Apple released Safari for Windows XP and above. being someone excited over the WWDC07, i went on and try out the browser.

The installation is pretty okay, and no other programs need to be close before installing the program. on the other hand, The un-installation was pretty weird, other than the fact that it requires you close other internet application (Internet Explorer n Firefox) and also your MSN live Messager to continue for the removing of the program from Windows. this makes me wonder if it got something to do with the internet protocol. if that’s the case, than why it didn’t prompt me when i am installing.

During usage, i noticed the fonts used is bold as compared to the one used in Fx and IE, which is a bit difficult to digress on my part. maybe it’s on my own preference. for those who can’t stand the fonts can actually change the settings in the preferences windows, a similar feature is also very obvious in Itunes.

other than that, the features found in the ‘option’ are really similar to the one found in Fx and IE7. IMO if you are looking for a fantastic lightweight application to use as a alternative to IE7, look somewhere else. for those web-developer who wanted to view their sites in Safari (thus opening up market to those die-hard Apple users), this might be a good chance to download and keep it in your PC for future uses. for those who owned a Blogspot/Wordpress/LiveJournal might give this latest Apple download a try, JUST to see how their website looks like in Safari.

wait, isn’t that under the same catagories with Web Developer, no matters.

The final verdict is.. huge memory hog on those running on 512mb ram computer. those who are running 1gb laptops might not be able to feel the strain, but at only two tabs opened, it can already eat up your memory like fuck, which is a big killer+turn off. my above review is based on my own opinion, considering that it’s only in it’s beta version, there isn’t much to rant about.

still i might consider and try it out again, when it fix its memory bug. i dun want my ram to burn up again.
