Now Apple’s Safari Browser 3 for Windows Platform

Now Apple's Safari 3 for Windows Platform

Apple has released a beta version of Safari browser for Windows, this means that you can run Apple Safari browser on Windows XP and Vista. The move by Apple,Which has expanded beyond its Macintosh computer core with iPod media players and the upcoming iPhone, could let the company control how large numbers of people use the Web at a time when services and programs are increasingly Internet based. Apple claming that Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2 and it executes JavaScript up to 2.8 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.
11 Reasons for you to install Apple Safari browser on Windows Platform :

  1. Elegant user interface: Safari’s clean, sleek look lets you focus on the web instead of your browser. The browser frame is a mere one pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when you need one. You see no status bar by default — a blue progress bar fills the address field as the page loads — giving you more room to browse and view the web.
  2. Easy bookmarks: Safari makes it easier than ever to manage your bookmarks. One click opens the single-window interface, where you can browse, search, and organize bookmarks.
  3. Pop-up blocking: Safari blocks annoying pop-up ads and pop-under windows that clutter up your desktop and distract you from your browsing. By default, Safari blocks all unprompted new windows. You can open new windows when you click links, but you’ll get no surprises from unexpected, unwanted pop-ups.
  4. Inline Find: Now you can locate any text on any web page using the Find command in Safari. Type a word into the new integrated Find banner under the bookmarks bar, and Safari shows you the found count and highlights matching terms while dimming the page below them.
  5. Tabbed browsing: With tabbed browsing in Safari, you can open and switch between multiple web pages in a single window. Drag and drop your tabs to rearrange them, open one in a new browser window, or merge all your current windows into one tabbed window.
  6. SnapBack: SnapBack lets you instantly snap back to your original search results or to the top level of any website, even after you’ve browsed down a few levels. The SnapBack icon appears in the search field after you click a link in a search results page. Clicking the icon takes you back to the results page and even scrolls to the specific location you last viewed.
  7. Forms AutoFill: Now you need never fill out an online form from scratch. That’s because Safari Forms AutoFill completes online forms with information from your Address Book or from previously completed forms.
  8. Built-in RSS: Scan all the latest news, information, and articles from thousands of websites in one simple-to-read, searchable article list delivered right to you. The built-in RSS (Really Simple Syndication) reader in Safari tells you when new articles or blog posts have been added to your favorite sites.
  9. Resizable text fields: Safari lets you resize text fields on any website, just by grabbing the corner of the field. Resize a field and the web page reflows to make room.
  10. Private browsing: Turn on private browsing and Safari won’t store your Google searches, your cookies, the history of sites you’ve visited, your download history, or information from online forms you’ve filled out.
  11. Security: Now you can enjoy worry-free web browsing on any computer. Apple engineers designed Safari to be secure from day one. Safari uses robust encryption to ensure that your private information stays that way. When you browse a secure site, Safari displays a lock icon in the upper-right corner of the browser. If you want to know more about the credentials of a secure site, click the lock icon and Safari displays detailed information about the site’s security certificate.

Why send SMS when you can chat on mobile instant messenger ?

If you spend lots of time on your cell phone sending SMS to your friends. Well, chatting through your phone may be a better option for you. For one,it works out cheaper than sending a volley of text messages across.

Today most modern phones offer Java compatibility, email and MMS support, Internet connectivity via GPRS/EDGE and an intelligent operating system such as symbian which is more than enough for mobile instant messaging and if you are interested in chatting on Live Messenger or Google Talk with your phone, then there are lots of programs available out there and most of them are available free of cost. You can either download the application on your computer and then transfer to the mobile phone or directly download onto the your cell phone via GPRS. So if you can’t wait to get started, here are some of the instant messenger you should be looking at.

1) Nimbuzz: Nimbuzz provides multiple connectivity with Live Messenger, Google Talk and Nimbuzz’s own messaging service. Visit http://get.nimbuzz.com from your mobile browser to download the application. Once you’ve registered on Nimbuzz site, simply select the messaging service of your choice and you are ready to chat.

2) Instango: This nifty application promises connectivity with Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, MSN, ICQ and Jabber all in one. Jabber is one of the most popular open source clients that uses the XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol), also used in very famous Google Talk.
Instango uses a proxy server to connect to the Jabber service. This proxy server minimises traffic considerably. For example, if you’re using Google Talk for an hour on the computer uses up to 1 MB of bandwidth, Instango will do the same in about 100 KB. This is quite important given the fact that most cellular providers charge you by the MB. Once you have downloaded and installed the application from http://www.instango.com, the next thing you need to do is configure it.

If you don’t already have a Jabber ID, you should download and install the PSI Jabber client on your main computer from http://psi-im.org and then register a new Jabber account for yourself.
