It's quite possibly they are going to rely on their status as a media icon, a "hip company" to gain market share. I, however, view this as just one more damn browser we are going to have to find hacks for :( -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Jason Handby Sent: Tuesday, June 12, 2007 8:21 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Safari on Windows > Just thought I'd pass it along.

Can anyone suggest why on earth Apple think this is a good idea? Do they not think that, between the ubiquitous Internet Explorer and the free Firefox, the browser market on the PC is pretty much sewn up? And if there's anything they would like the PC browser to do that IE and Firefox don't do, what's wrong with plugins or something? I'm finding this very puzzling. But then I'm not an Apple expert.
