    I'm confused about this - if Safari hasn't been on Windows since 2012, why does https://www.apple.com/safari/ make references to "Safari on Windows 10" in the benchmarking section. It seems odd to compare a benchmark for a product that doesn't exist.

    (I put this in the High Sierra forum because it was the a link on the High Sierra page on Apple.com that brought me to the Safari page)

    Oh that’s super interesting, I hope it’s true and Apple is making a new version of safari for windows. Having a gaming rig that runs windows it would be awesome to have iCloud tabs and bookmarks synced across my desktop, MacBook, iPad, and iPhone.

    That is an interesting find, although the text at the bottom strangely makes no mention of Safari testing done on Windows.

    Yeah, it's just a weird typo. Notice it says "safari on macOS" under it, not Windows. I'd say that they just copied and pasted that section again or something, except it's 4.2x instead of 4.3x. Really strange.

    It’s as it says. It’s beating browsers on Windows 10 running in Boot Camp - i.e on the same machine Safari on macOS out performs other browsers in macOS and on Windows, via Boot Camp, those browsers are also slower on Windows 10 than what Safari is under macOS.

    Yeah, they could definitely word it better.

    Oh well, we can stil dream about a Windows 10 version with iCloud syncing for tabs, history, and Keychain.

    It did say Windows; Apple has updated the page since this thread was posted.
