Apple Safari is now available for Windows an the default search engine is set to Google.

Safari installation on Windows was a snap. The inbuilt RSS reader is excellent and the browser is pretty fast - Apple claims that Safari loads web pages up to 2 times faster than IE 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.

However, there were some issue with the fonts - the Safari Toolbars and bookmarks are all appearing in overlapping numbers and symbols. Possibly I am missing some Apple font or the Helvetica Fractions font is corrupted. Anyone else noticed this ?

Another missing feature in Safari Windows is "email webpages" - Mac users can email full copies of websites (including images) while Windows users can only send the link of the current webpage.

You will love the "Private Browsing" feature of safari - when turned on, the sites that you visit are not added to the browser's history and searches are not saved in the Google box.

This is the second Apple software on my Windows PC after the iTunes-Quicktime combo and the fifth web-browser after IE, Firefox, Maxthon and Opera.
