Why? iTunes is f-ing awesome. Safari is well...its better than IE by a mile but still not as good as FF. I swear, people who hate Apple just because they are Apple need to ****.

Yeah, I know about FF themes, but there is a lack of good ones, and why theme a slower (just on my computer it seems) browser instead of using the default look of one that fits in 100%?


I use FF on my PC (rig system) because it's the fastest, and most web dev friendly.

Where did you pull those ridiculous numbers out of? IE used to own around 85% of the market.

However, currently IE controls 60% of the market. Firefox has 33% now. Interestingly enough... Safari has a measly 1.5%

I love FF, I'm not a fan of Opera, and IE isn't any better/worse than Opera, to me.

Firefox runs fast on my PC, I don't know why some people say it loads slow and runs slow etc. It's the same as IE or Opera for me. And I have 12 extensions installed and a custom theme. I love extensions and themes, one of the best things about FF

I never found anything special about Safari either. I don't know why they would bother releasing it for Windows.

Its pretty pointless to argue whether itunes is crap or not since its a pretty relative matter, its like arguing that black is better then blue. Personally pretty much hated i tunes, and most of the people i talked to shared my feeling .

Back to Firefox debate. what will Safari offer which will convince me to change ? pretty much nothing .Also if you have ff open constantly it wont be slower, also 50 mb use is not much for me when i have a gb of ram. not to mention all the extensions you can get for it. Ie = extremly slow, crashes alot , pretty much crap.

It doesnt seem Safari will offer anything extra then the current ones, so pretty much pointless

yes Itunes is horrendous, it is so freaking slow, ugly to look at, hard to find what you need unless you're a pro at using the software...Thankfully i don't own an ipod(they suck so why would i waste my money?) so i don't have to put up with that crap. Sansa & Soulseek FTW!!

Apple’s Safari is making its way to the Windows platform with the serious intention of making a dent in the market. As brilliant as the people are at Apple, I can’t help but laugh at their, to put it politely, delusion. Before I ramble on too much, here are my five reasons why Safari will fail on the Windows platform.

1. Internet Explorer Ain’t Dead: It’s pretty obvious that killing Internet Explorer isn’t a child’s play. If Firefox and Opera are having such a difficult time beating Internet Explorer, what makes Apple so hopeful? We must also not forget that Internet Explorer is bundled with Windows, and that means a lot of mainstream users already have an application to work with. If Firefox weren’t able to create enough viral market adoption for the mainstream audience, Apple would have to be delusional to expect people to use a browser from a company they don’t even know makes a browser.

2. Firefox, Anyone? After Internet Explorer, Apple has Firefox to go after. I hope Apple doesn’t expect to solely steal market share away from Internet Explorer. There are other entrants who would have to pay for Apple to be successful. Yeah, right! Like that’s ever going to happen. Firefox is successful because of the community and its efforts. It takes a lot of resources and a genuinely nice product/organization to get support from a community that is willing to work and develop plug-ins on their own time for free to enhance the user experience. Can Apple secure such a loyal following?

3. O for Opera: Apple needs to look at Opera to figure out why Internet Explorer and now Firefox (at least somewhat) dominate the market. There is a reason Opera isn’t a widely used browser. It’s because people, other than enthusiasts, don’t have an interest in using an alternative browser that’s already available to them. On top of that, I don’t see how Apple plans to monetize from Safari’s adoption unless they are planning to do it indirectly. Maybe they want to spread the word about the Mac platform with Safari. Maybe if people like Safari, they will be more interested in Apple’s OS X, and thus the Mac platform as a whole. Hmm… sounds too farfetched.

4. Nobody Likes Safari: Need I say more? Apple’s Mac community loathes Safari like the plague. If it’s loyal community doesn’t prefer their native browser, oh, is it going to be difficult to convert new users? Let’s work on improving Safari for the Mac, shall we, Apple? Apple needs to get a clue and start taking a more realistic approach towards browsers. It just can’t be the best at everything it does.

5. Who Cares? Plain and simple, who cares? Why should I get Safari over Firefox (I won’t even count Internet Explorer to make it easier on the company.)? What substantial features does Safari offers compared to other browsers?
1. IE isn't dead.. So what, windows comes with IE and user is allowed to download Safari if they want

2. Ok but it has nothing to do with Safari. Maby when it comes to benchmark but saying it's failing because of Firefox and IE is faster isn't A fact

3. O for Opera.. who the fork cares

4. That may be true but do you have to bash on them?

5. That's not even a fact or a reson why it's going to fail

I don't like Safari but all these resions why it fails are just BullCrap.
