Latest Safari will not support Windows operating systems

Latest Safari will not support Windows operating systems Apple has removed download links for Windows versions of its Safari browser from its website.
The site now only shows off Safari 6, which was unveiled earlier in the week alongside OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Even searching for Safari on the site will lead you to the main page, with all references to older versions that support Windows being gone.

Unless this is some temporary glitch, it appears that Safari 5.1.7 will be the last version for Windows users, with cross-development likely being stopped.

Safari for Windows has been around since early 2007, originally in beta form.

The move shouldn't upset too many, as Safari only has around 6 percent of the entire browser market share, with over 5 percent of that coming from Mac users.

This is cool? I mean, they really don't need to offer a Windows version of it anyway.

Who on Earth would use Safari anyway. It's easily the worst browser available and is one of the worst pieces of software I've ever seen. I don't know anyone that can stand to use it.

Safari is worse than trying to light a cigarette with wet paper matches at an addicts circle meeting. Get the f*k rid of entirely as far as I'm concerned.

I'd rather go back to Netscape than ever use Safari. I know Apple device owners who don't use Safari.
