During the WWDC Steve Jobs announced that it will be launching a a version of its Safari web browser for windows. I think it is a logical step for them with iTunes software on so many machines out there it seems like a reasonable base from which to spread a browser into the Windows space.

Performance claims suggest that Safari will be twice as fast as IE running on XP and Vista. I am wondering if we have room for another browser in the Windows arena, there are so many already. My anecdotal beliefs are that FireFox has had much more direct impact on its predecessors than directly on IE, and if someone wants an alternate to IE then FireFox, and not Safari, will be the choice.

Working for Corillian\CheckFree our clients directly support Safari on Macs I am wondering if this will automatically be the case for Safari on PCs.
