As of Safari v6, Apple will not be supplying a Windows version. Probably not their best decision but whatever.

Why Dropping Windows is a Mistake – http://www.sitepoint.com/safari-6-whats-new-windows-version/

I don’t do Mac OS and as long as Apple made it convenient, I’ve always installed Safari on Windows for testing purposes only. Now, it may just become just one less browser I’ll be testing in now.

How does Apple’s change in browser strategy affect you (if at all)?

At this point it’s all just speculation to me. Tons of sites are claiming Apple discontinued it because the download links aren’t available anymore. However, it could very well be temporary as Apple deals with the massive amounts of bandwidth during the Mountain Lion update.

Of course, I’d accept being proven wrong with an official statement from Apple.

I am also using Safari for Windows to test my website. If Safari 6 won’t be released for Windows, the closest browser for testing it would be Chrome (both are webkit) but Safari tend to have more problems than Chrome though.

Maybe they just realized that Safari has always been a crappy browser on Windows.

I’m an apple user but was a windows user for decades and I feel that I am experienced enough on both platforms to realize that Apple does not make the best windows applications.

I think it’s a good thing for everyone involved. Apple can concentrate on what they do best on their own platforms and chrome can easily take the place of the very small user base on Windows systems.

I disagree with that part. iTunes is awesome on Windows, Quicktime also.

Hahahaha that really made me laugh :-D

But honestly, I don’t think that they would drop support for win. Of course, a company like Apple possibly think that if they drop support for win, all web devs NEED to buy an apple to test the websites they serve, but c’mon, that would be a little bit to risky.

What does it cost to develop and maintain a browser? And what do they get in return from people using this browser? In the end they need to develop a browser for their products so why should they exactly drop support for the WIN Version which is still the most used OS for desktops and notebooks?

From my experience, the worst Apple product is Safari.
