Surprise! Apple has released the Safari browser for Windows. It does seem to be a bit faster than Firefox at page rendering, although I wonder if the extensions I have in Firefox slow it down a bit. We have noticed so far that some some sites don’t seem quite ready for the news that Safari usership is about to expand. Yahoo! Mail Beta doesn’t seem to like it very much, and Google occasionally offers some Mac-specific downloads.

I don’t know if I’m ever going to get used to brushed metal, though.

Update: Wait, is it plastic gray now? Maybe it’s one of those differences you can really see on a Mac, but I swear it just looks like the same UI scheme to me in Windows.
