Download Apple Safari 3 for Windows

Apple has made its Safari 3 web browser, which is in public beta, available for the Windows platform. Safari 3 will support Windows XP, Windows Vista and obviously, Mas OS X.
This was one of the announcements at the Apple WWDC 2007 conference.

With more than 70% percent of the world's computers running Windows, Apple clearly wants a larger pie in the browser market, dominated by Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Opera.

Safari is the fastest browser on any platform! That's what Apple claims; when loading web pages, Safari is 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.
They further claim it executes javascript up to 2.8 times faster than IE 7 and 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.
If their claims are true, then Safari is indeed the fastest browser.

Some Safari features
Resizable Text Field: You can resize a text field in any web page just by dragging it from a corner.
Private Browsing: Switching on Private Browsing in Safari and your browsing history, cookies, Google searches, download history and online application forms won't be stored. This feature is also one of the recommendations for Firefox 3.
Tabbed browsing: Ok! Every browser has this. Safari resizes tabs based on how many sites you have opened.
Pop-up blocking: Safari will block those annoying and unwanted pop-up windows by default.

Apart from these, there are a lot more features too. Check out the list here.
