Although flaws has been found in Safari browser, Apple only fix major security issues. Besides, there is no built-in anti-spywares and anti-phishing.
Some websites do not support Safari Windows browser. In Mac, the Safari works good. No problem found at all. But in Windows, you will get this message from Yahoo, “Hmm…your browser is not officially supported.”. Interesting huh?
- Memory eater
I thought only Firefox likes to eat our computer resources. But there is another browser who has big appetite of memory eating.
- Mac program behaviour
Safari for Windows is not for Windows but more for Mac. The way it resizes is not like normal Windows program do.
- No Sidebar
Try to be different but it is totally different. Safari has no sidebar like other web browsers. Like in Opera, the sidebar is use to get quick access to our Bookmarks, Notes, Transfers, History, etc.
- No Plugins
You will only get Safari. Nothing you can do to enhance the usability. Although they claimed that they offer plugins, but only basic plugins like Flash, Java, Media Player. Heh!
- Dull interface
No extra skins supported. You only get the dull grey interface. Owh…poor you…
- Tabs poorly done
No extra features for tabs. No options to reopen the same tabs you had open last time you ran the browser.
- Big size
Although there are not many features in Safari, but the installation file size is 7.97Mb (without QuickTime). More bigger than Firefox, Opera and IE7.
- No tool tips
Even you hover the cursor to an icon for a long time period, no tool tips will pop-up to give the explanation. You must find out by your own what each icon does. Cool eh?
And here is the best thing that I want to show you. Here is how the content looks like in my Safari.
Alien writing eh?
Owh…so sweet… Like an alien hand writing.
