Test Drive of Safari on Windows

I downloaded and installed the newly-released Safari on Windows (available here in order to see for myself how Apple's venerable browser looks and feels like on my notebook.

The slick interface still has the same look and feel of the MacOS with these claimed features

1. Blazing Performance
2. Elegant User Interface
3. Easy Bookmarks
4. Pop-up Blocking
5. Inline Find
6. Tabbed Browsing
7. SnapBack
8. Forms AutoFill
9. Built-in RSS
10. Resizable Text Fields
11. Private Browsing
12. Security

After opening a few tabs of a news site, Safari crashed and generated Application logs I appended below.

Now, that's normal behavior for a product still i beta stage. Unlike the vaunted Windows Vista that I found too slow on my brother's new Toshiba Satellite notebook running on Intel Core 2 Duo.

For now, I just content myself on my Firefox browser that currently use MacFoxII add-on to look like it's on MacOS X :)

Application error log generated when my Safari crashed:
