This is pretty big news. Apple has released a beta for Safari on Windows. No Linux solution yet?


But the main impetus for bringing Safari to Windows may be the fact that Apple is also pitching Safari and Web-based applications as the way to write programs that run on the iPhone. So given that it is already pouring resources into the browser, trying to get more return on that investment makes sense, analysts said. Gartner analyst Mike McGuire said the decision to move Safari to Windows is about the iPhone "as much as anything." McGuire said Safari has some interesting features but added that it is not clear whether that will get it a spot in the Windows Start menu of most PC users.

At the very least it will allow Windows users to test websites with a proper standards browser.
