If your summation is true, then it's an incredibly positive slant for a NZ article :p

That would be because the writer of the article used to work for NZ Mac Guide.

I love how they throw in a link to download the IE8 beta at the end. The article mentions Firefox too -- where's their download link? :rolleyes:

"Apple has released the latest version of its Safari web browser.

[...]

This reflects the fact that Microsoft's operating system runs on Intel Macs."

Uh...it does? What does the existence of Boot Camp have to do with any of this?

They've also repeated themselves:

Safari is currently the number three browser in the marketplace, with analytics company Net Applications data showing six per cent of the world's web users use the browser. Internet Explorer accounts for three quarters of the market, followed by Mozilla's Firefox on about 17 per cent.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is used by three-quarters of the world's web users, far more than Mozilla's Firefox, which has a 17 per cent share of the market, and Apple's Safari with 6 per cent, according to data from website analytics company Net Applications.

So you can use Safari on the windows side ;). I don't agree with them, but it is a sound idea.

Were you attempting parody or did it just happen?

gerardrj, parody or not, that was hysterical. You gave me the best laugh of the day.

Thank you.

Bag 'em and tag 'em, that's what I say.

Just hope Apple realizes this isn't supposed to be a "catch and release" environment. :eek:
