    Unfortunately, the central tenet of the article, that Safari is the underlying browser for iTunes, is flawed. To put it more bluntly, it is false.

    iTunes and Safari doubtless share a small part of layout/rendering code, but the core libraries involved in Safari simply are not used in iTunes, and have not been publicly distributed in a Windows form.

    The closest you can come is KHTML, which isn't bad, but a far cry from an IE killer on Windows.

    Why would windows people switch to Safari if they didn't switch to Firefox or Mozilla in the first place? Safari wouldn't be a native app, it would run on an emulation layer. Any advantage Safari had on Mozilla on the Mac platform is completely lost on the Windows platform.
