Apple Safari browser for Windows already exists with million

"Literally millions of people use a big chunk of Safari on Windows. It's the browser built into iTunes. It works today," John Allsopp writes for The Sydney Morning Herald. "So arguably the quickest, most standards compliant browser around, which by the way is based on the open source KHTML rendering engine, is available right now on Windows. And to use iTunes, you need to use it. Apple contributes to the KHTML project, so many of its innovations will find their way into that browser. On the Mac, Windows and UNIX variants."

"Apple, along with KHTML, Opera and Mozilla, may have two or three years to innovate on the browser front, without any competition from Microsoft," Allsopp writes. "And Apple might just have found the killer app to drive people to adopt a new, lightweight, fast, open source based, standards-compliant multi-platform browser - mainstream commercial online music."
