    Its faster
    And its still downloadable for OS X or Windows
    3rd in market share

    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:
    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?

    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:
