One More Browser
It took me quite a while to get onboard with Safari when it was originally released for OS X: the prospect of having yet another browser to debug didn’t endear Apple to many developers. But Safari on Windows is another story entirely.
Assuming the rendering engine is consistent (I wonder how it will handle anti-aliasing) this is a huge windfall for Safari users on the Mac because even moderate adoption on the PC means more attention payed to the rendering engine’s quirks which will result in a better experience for all.
But what’s good for users is even better for Apple. The iPhone doesn’t have an SDK. Instead Apple is encouraging developers to write standards-base web apps. That will work in Safari. On the Mac. On the PC. And on the iPhone.
That makes for one smart phone.
