Oh, well I'm having problems viewing some random links lately in FireFox and IE (http://www.geekstogo...ks-t160347.html). I always use FireFox because it's better. So maybe, just maybe Safari will work.

I tried it last night after Chris Pirillo was talking about it on his live show. It is "ok". I wasn't pleased with the bookmark feature. FF's bookmarks are MUCH better, IMO. I also had a few crash / freeze problems on sites that worked perfectly fine in IE and FF both.

For now, I'll stick with FF.

I agree, but I'm still totally pissed off all together with the internet right now. Because of the websites not working.

And as you've been told SEVERAL times already, sites will work again once you have all the malware cleared off your machine. Try exercising some patience.

I know that. But I have the best of the best (pretty much every program Geek to Go admin's and staff has recommended) Anti Mal-Ware applications, and have been scanning non stop all day, and yesterday. Some have detected 1 or 2 problems, others have not, but nothing is better. I think things are getting worse, because now things are slowing down a lot, and programs are taking longer to open up.....and such. Anyway this isn't the place to be talking about me anyway, I was just bringing it up before for the sake of conversation, and how Safari may actually open up those sites I'm having difficulty with, but it didn't work as I planned it would. :whistling:

So...what does everyone else think about Safari for Windows?

I tried the safari and it crashed a few times. i guess it is not yet for multi language it doesn't do well in Hebrew.
I'm sticking with FF and IE for now.

have yet to try Safari for Windows, but let's not forget it's only a beta version, not a finished product, so to be fair to Apple it's not surprising there are some wrinkles to be ironed out. That's the whole point of releasing beta software. It's unfair to Apple to compare Safari beta with fully mature and finished versions of IE or FF. They weren't without their own problems and bugs during development.
