 Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Apple Safari Web Browser at Epinions.com
While I loved Netscape 7.0 on the iMac while I was running Mac OS 9.1 at work, the browser tended to crash under OS X. Internet Explorer 5.2 was a bit more stable, but I had the most of the same problems I had with the browser under Mac OS 9.1.
In short, I was pleasantly surprised with the browser, but Apple has to do a lot of work on this piece of software if the company ever hopes to put a dent in the marketshare Microsoft has in the Macintosh world with Internet Explorer.
Although it appears the browser wars are over and Microsoft has won, Safari is a very nice application for OS X users and is well-worth downloading.
