quote: Amidst this embarassing debacle, new reports are coming in that Safari is faring rather poorly on Windows XP, with many users experiencing crashes. Windows XP users who felt smug about Windows Vista bugs, may find an unexpected new source of problems-- Apple. Apple's support forum is being flooded by angry posters complaining that their XP version of the Safari browser is broken. Says SakJosep, one such poster, "When I try to start Safari 3.1 in Windows XP, it crashes right away."
quote: Apple made the dubious decision of trying to coerce iTune's 500 million users into installing Safari along with the normal iTunes update, via a pesky dialog, which comes with the install Safari option checked by default. Mozilla blasted Apple for this tactic, saying it "borders on malware distribution practices".

quote: All the soundcards in all the apple computers I use (Macbook, E-mac, G-4) are completely awful.
quote: Some users are reporting that the browser simply will not open. The thread on the problems has received over 1,000 views well before receiving much media coverage, making it clear that the problem may be afflicting many users. There have also been scattered reports of Safari not running on Vista, though XP has received many more such reports. Of the Vista problems, most posters said the previous versions worked properly, but that the update to the current version, 3.1 broke the browser.
