    While I was waiting for a 20M file to be zipped up and sent from our Australian server to my NZ desktop, I had a quick look at the Melbourne Age, one of the few web sites that isn’t locked down. I’m glad it wasn’t, because this article is a wee cracker: http://tinyurl.com/ypuf4

    I hadn’t thought of this this way before:

    [quote author=“John Allsopp”]Have you used Safari for Windows?

    Do you have iTunes on their Windows machine?

    Literally millions of people use a big chunk of Safari on Windows. It’s the browser built into iTunes. It works today.

    So arguably the quickest, most standards compliant browser around, which by the way is based on the open source KHTML rendering engine, is available right now on Windows. And to use iTunes, you need to use it. Apple contributes to the KHTML project, so many of its innovations will find their way into that browser. On the Mac, Windows and UNIX variants.
