Safari on Windows Even Worse Than Expected

Techmeme this morning is bustling with bad news about Apple’s Safari browser on Windows.

Various people have not only found major bugs (which is expected from a beta), but also possibly exploitable bugs that could have major security ramifications.

Personally, I am not even so much concerned with the security issues right now, but with the fact that when I want to see a webpage in Safari, it takes for ever to open. I can open up Firefox, browse to GMail and log into my account in the time an already open Safari renders the login page. That’s just sad.

Also, I noticed Safari seems to install a lot of crud on the system. Do you really need Bonjour to browse the web?

More info on the security issues can be found at Zero Day.
