    They make it sound like you'd better think carefully before trying a NON-IE browser. As though it's typical to be running across lots of sites that don't work.

    ALL the sites I use work with Safari, and I never spoof IE (spoofing helps IE claim even more dominance than it already has).

    A site the doesn't work is a possible issue, but it's not a problem that everyone has by any means.

    Compare that to the security risks.

    I have actually seen an increase in the support of internet standards. I rarely have problems.

    Safari for Windows, anyone?

    why would apple port safari? windows has enough viable alternatives: the mozilla folks are really doing well. apple has no financial incentive to port safari. they ported iTunes and rendezvous because they bring in revenues.

    I haven't really noticed any problems with using Safari. Apple has done a good job with taking care of the glitches.
