Apple’s Safari, a web-browser now for Windows based PC

Now this has been a long awaited news. Apple has now decided to reach over for the PC world. They just have to say, beaware world ! Apple is not just a rich man’s toy….. we will conqure.
 
Safari, is acclaimed to be the most sofesticated web-browser so far anyone has built. The precision & speed is in multi-fold. I will not be a big mouth and keep boosting about Safari, rather let the numbers do that for me.
