Rabid Firefox fans
Kind of funny that the rabid Firefox fans here are so anti-Safari. Don't you folks realise that the more popular Safari proves to be on Windows, the better for Firefox and web standards it will be? Why? Because Safari will *not* take market share away from Firefox - it is a browser aimed at people who browse lightly per session and don't want or need power-user features such as extensions, etc. IOW, if it does get adopted by anyone, it will be adopted by current IE users first. Imagine market share stats (if not better ones) in a years time that read Firefox 15 to 20%, Safari 15 to 20% and IE 65 to 55% instead of the current stats of Firefox 15%, Safari 5%, IE 75% (note, I've given a generous 5% share to all other browsers). That is just a win-win situation for Firefox users no matter which way you look at it, because it is IE that is going down, not Firefox.
FWIW, wrt to web standards, Safari/WebKit/Konquerour is *more* compliant than Firefox. As one small example, WebKit (and therefore Safari 2, not 3) was the first rendering engine to pass the Acid2 test, and that was donkey's ago. Where WebKit has been historically deficient is in JS support, not web standards support. This is why, browser sniffing idiocy aside, many of the sites that don't work in Safari 2 fail, not because of a lack of web standards support. Both have been improved immensely in the latest versions of WebKit. For those people saying, "Safari just isn't compatible with many websites", this will change to "Safari just wasn't compatible with many websites"
FWIW, I don't use Safari. It is too feature-light for my tastes. I use Firefox on my work PC and OmniWeb (another WebKit based browser) on my Mac. Interestingly, OmniWeb is a good example of an advantage that Safari has over Firefox - the rendering engine (WebKit) is just much easier to adopt and use in other applications by other developers than Gecko. Therefore, we could actually see even more third-party browsers on the Windows platform, offering unique and great features unavailable elsewhere, but sharing a common open source rendering engine in WebKit.
