Apple Safari for Windows .... BIG MISTAKE!

I started to use safari a few weeks ago and it was working fine until I noticed it made youtube video laggy in terms of watching them, for example it would make the audio and video go out of sync.

The lack of support for google gears is insulting.
It has S***ty flash support, so for example heavy flash applications either run like S*** or don't run at all.
The lac of Java support (despite having it installed for safari) is also S***, and at times Safari just won't load up the webpage.

I honestly hate Safari

but on the plus side I do like the font smoothing, and the whole look of the browser is something to smilee upon. But that's all apple are about .... looks.

Yeah guys I don't mean to sound like a killjoy but -

#14 Do not treat the threads as an Instant Messaging Conversation, we have a Private Message system for that
This thread is sorta doing that now. Why not just modify posts or use PM?

Hmm, yeah agreed.

Also not much of a review is it...just you saying how much you hate it, would have been more suitable in the software discussion thread.

for your information, you are running a apple product that they have kindly transferred to windows. And apple aren't just about looks, they have an insane operating system OS X 10.5.6 and more insane programs and support for it.

(sorry if i sounded like a smart ass)

Belive me, You don't sound Like a smart A**
Were talking about the Browser, Not about the OS they have made..
Were talking about this browser, Not about there other programs..
No matter how many good things they may have, Does not mean, All of there other stuff is automatticly brilliant. ( Not saying I dont like The broswer, I am just saying that your points to backup Safari are wrong )

As for Safari Being a big mistake for windows, I highly Disagree.
Safari Is fast, A quick loader, A nice layout, A easy way of getting to things, A good range of Add Ons And it is easy to reach and download and try the new add ons.
Whats not to like?
