Safari update makes itself obsolete on Windows

Posted on by Steve Workman About 1 min reading time

Last week, Apple announced the Safari 4 beta with a whole host of updates and enhancements. Whilst all of this is great for Mac users, it renders the browser completely obsolete for Windows users. Let me explain:

Lets go through the list of new features.

So, what does this all mean exactly? Well, Safari is becoming more and more like Chrome. In fact, all Google has to do is update their Webkit rendering engine and they will be the same browser. In this manner, Safari for Windows has just shot itself in the foot by removing any differentiating features between itself and its nearest competitior.

I fully expect Safari 5 to make itself even more like Google Chrome (whatever that may look like in 2 years time).
