In a surprising move, Steve Jobs announced today that Apple will be releasing their Safari browser for windows. In live tests done on stage at WWDC this morning, Safari on windows shows to be twice as fast as IE7, and nearly twice as fast as Firefox. Apple will be releasing a beta today for windows users.
This is an interesting move by Apple. The release of iTunes on Windows is obvious, why limit iPod use to mac users only, but the windows browser landscape is pretty full. My guess is this has to do with the iPhone. Steve also announced the iPhone will be open to third party apps, but those apps would run in Safari. This now gives everyone, windows and mac users alike full access to Safari.
Update: Apple has also released the Safari 3 beta for Macs.safari, safari windows, safari download, safari browser
