Apple Touts 1 Million Downloads For Safari In Under 2 Weeks

Apple has announced that Safari downloads have topped 1 million in the 13 days since it was released. Safari is Appleis Mac OS X-only Web browser that was released during Macworld San Francisco 2003. Currently in a beta release, Apple is touting the browser as the fastest Web browser for the Mac, including rival browser Internet Explorer made by Microsoft.

In a press release from Apple, CEO Steve Jobs said: "Safari is a home run, with over a million downloads in less than two weeks. Mac users have discovered that Safari beta release is already the fastest browser on the Mac and possibly the best browser in the world."

During the Expo, Apple announced that some 300,000 copies of Safari had been downloaded during the first day of availability, with the 500,000 mark being met later that week.

Last week, TMO published a story saying that Safari was the #2 browser in use at our site since its release, with some 20.72% of all Web pages having been called up with Safari.
