Safari Gains Traction on Windows

Apple Insider, InformationWeek

Use of Apple's Safari browser on Windows has tripled since mid-March, when the company pushed it out for distribution via its Software Update service.According to Net Applications, a Web metrics company based in Aliso Viejo, Calif., share of Safari 3.0 on Microsoft's operating system peaked at 0.07 percent. But in the six weeks since Apple preselected Safari 3.1 installs as part of its Software Update for the millions of PCs that run iTunes -- a move that was met with criticism -- the browser's share has already reached 0.21 percent.

Meanwhile, Firefox continues to make gains over Internet Explorer in the PC market. A month-old study from Forrester Research found that in 2007, IE's overall market share among large enterprises decreased by 10 percent, while Firefox's share almost doubled to 18 percent.Apple Insider, InformationWeek
