This is all very well, but I just wish Safari would be aviable as a standalone installer to us, mac users...and not just f.... windows users. I expect a little more respect for those who spend their money buying mac machines than being directed to a windows only download.




Safari comes built into a mac. So there is no reason to download it if you have a mac. If you deleted it somehow then take it to a genius bar. Or if that is inconvenient then call apple up and see what they can tell over the phone. I'm sure Apple would be more then happy to help you.



I was talking of the new 3.1 version, of course. It seems to be aviable only via software update, which is impossible to me, being on modem connection at home. I usually download on hi speed at the office, and prefer to keep the standalone installer.
