Safari - The way to go...
« on: June 13, 2007, 08:09:55 am »
Hello folks,

I suppose the title of this thread may be a little misleading to some of the people here, but it has relevance to my post.

Safari 3.0 was just released by Apple yesterday, and I suggest you all try it out.  It's roughly 2.5 times faster (and much safer) than "Internet Explorer" and 1.5 faster than Firefox.

Here's a link:
  You don't really need quicktime, but if you want to install that as well, it's made easy.  http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

Sorry everyone, I didn't realize that Safari had problems on Korean systems, at least on the ones at my school.  It may be part of the setup they have here, I am not really sure.  You should still give it a go if you have a home computer.

Well, apparently it doesn't display Korean fonts.

It's still a beta though, keep that in mind.  I can see and use Korean fonts on my system, and I have a mac.

Nope, not a name change, just an inside joke between Adam and I.  It has to do with a show called: Bobobobobobobobobo, or something along those lines (yes, there's a show by that name).  I am not big on anime, but this one was so ridiculous I had to watch it for a while to figure out if it had any sort of consistency.  The main character fights his enemies with his nostril hairs... that's all I have to say about it.

June 15, 2007 - Safari 3 Beta for Windows was downloaded over 1 million times in the first 48 hours.

Even with 1 million downloads, Apple has a long way to go to keep its users. Amongst the complaints from its users are that it was noticeably buggy and slower in performance than both IE7 and Firefox 2. Furthermore, Apple is now dealing with the security issues that have long plagued its rivals on Windows. Around 10 vulnerabilities have already been discovered in the beta.

Some speculate that Safari for Windows exists solely for development of applications for the iPhone.

This is sort of a let down.  I hope they get their act together for this one, they've never had to create an application for a OS with so many security holes.  iTunes is the exception, but there's not much of an issue there with security as it doesn't get exposed to everything on the web.

I had to post this, it's just too funny.  Or maybe I am just a bit nerdy
