Safari 4 Tops 11M Downloads in 3 Days

Apple's cross-platform Safari 4 Web browser appears to be off to a fast start with over 11 million copies downloaded in the first three days since its release during the World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. According to the Cupertino-based company, some six million of those downloads went to Windows users.

Safari 4 includes HTML 5 support, complies with CSS, JavaScript, XML and SVG standards, offers a Cover Flow view for browsing bookmarks, a faster JavaScript engine that's almost eight times faster than Internet Explorer 8, and will protect users from application crashes related to plug-in problems when running under Mac OS X 10.6.

Safari 4 is available as a free download at the Apple Web site.
