Apple’s new Safari Web browser has taken off faster than a brushfire on the Serengeti Plain. Within 24 hours of its January 7th introduction, Apple counted more than 300,000 downloads. But how many people are actually using Safari for everyday Web browsing, and what do Mac community gurus think of it?
In terms of everyday use, The Mac Observer said Safari accounted for almost 21 percent of user traffic on its site in the first eight days after its release. Considering that Safari is still in beta form and works only with Jaguar, Apple’s latest version of OS X , that figure indicates an impressive rate of adoption.
