As you'll soon find out, that sir, is the icon representing Apple's web browser, "Safari" which is now available for Windows.

I run it when I require a second, non-Internet Explorer browser.

In a previous post I had downloaded and installed the Opera browser, but I found it was so much like IE, it turned my stomach, so I un-installed it and went with Safari, which I also run on my Mac as a second browser. Life is good again.

I shall have to do some reading on this Safari. It was some time ago now when you awoke me from my IE slumber and turned me onto Firefox. I love Firefox... what could be so interesting about Safari... you sir have peaked my interest.

It doesn't replace Firefox. But it is a handy "second browser" when you require one.

Please to explain? What types of situations? Maybe I need it and I don't yet know why...

For example, I run two different logins on the same forum - rather than logout & back on as each character, I simply run a second browser. Other times, when I am authoring web pages, I like to view the output in a variety of browsers. Pictures, different types of files, etc - all show up differently in different browsers. Also, I don't running Macromedia Flash on Firefox. So if I come across a site which requires flash, I fire up a second browser, do my business, and close it. BAM!

Any of that sound like you?

I was at the Apple store the other day fondling the new glass and aluminum iMac. That machine is a whole lot of sexy, before you even turn it on.

I am sooo addicted to my satellite radio I can not imagine wanting/needing anything in the iPod lineup. nothing against them, I am just lazy and like to dial up an endless variety of content and never have to deal with downloads. Plus I can listen over the internet when at my computer. I am sooo lazy.

I just came from Apple's site; I hadn't seen the new iMac's you referred to. They're unbelievable! Good choice.

Mind bending even. How do they get all that good stuff inside? I dont know how they do it and maybe I don,t even care.... as long as they keep doing it. I am going to get CS# at the same time... It will be a quantum leap in computing for me. I'll be lucky to last the winter before I take the plunge... stay tuned.

WTF? You hadn't seen the new iMacs until just then? That news is over a month old.

Seriously.

Those are pretty aren't they?! My friend Chrissy just got a part-time job with Apple as a trainer. Between him and his husband they own or have owned everything Apple sells.

All of a sudden my Mac Mini is looking like a first-gen Macintosh :(
