The Inq: Apple Safari for Vista sucks + security concerns

Posted on Tuesday, June 12 2007 @ 15:33:05 CEST by

The guys from The Inq tested Apple's new Safari browser for Windows and say the browser sucks.

Some of the bad things:
  • you can't save a tab group as the home page
  • Very boring look
  • Inability to save changes to preferences
  • Resizing a browser window doesn't work that great
  • It's slow
  • Font handling on a CRT display is extraordinarily bad
  • Eats a lot of memory, twice as much as Firefox
  • Overall this is the Inq's verdict:
    So why has Apple produced what is – at the moment at least – possibly the most crap browser on the planet? The clue's on that unavoidable start page and it's called iTunes. Apple's future is based on selling content, not computers.
    Additionally there are also security concerns. Within hours after the release security researchers already found three holes in the browser:
    One security researcher Avi Raff called out Safari's statement "Apple's engineers designed Safari to be secure from day one." Raff was able to find a vulnerability within three minutes using publicly available fuzzing tools. Raff found a memory corruption error that could allow an attacker to insert malicious code on a Windows machine.
