Safari, Apple's Super Charged Browser

Apple is currently offering Safari 3 for open beta for XP and Vista. I just downloaded it, and its freakin' hot (although I haven't figured how to change the theme or color, I'm stuck with the default gray)! Some great features include some font smoothing for you LCD or flatscreen users, a built in RSS reader for bloggers, and most importantly blazing fast overall performance! Download your copy copy here! Here's a list of Apple's claim on Safari's performance (taken from Apple):

As predicted, people would want to try out Safari as soon as Apple made its announcement of a Windows version of the browser. If Apple says it's the fastest and easiest to use in the whole world, people would want to know if it's true. But Apple should be careful. Trust after all, is very fragile.
