Apple releases Safari 6.0, not Windows version
Safari users on windows are not many, but it is noteworthy, however, that version 6.0 of Apple’s browser, released this morning along with OS X Mountain Lion , it brings support for Microsoft’s operating system.
Earlier versions of Safari are still available for Windows, but the new no. Although it might appear in the coming days, the lack of support for the Microsoft system has led some to question whether Apple have plans to discontinue its browser to Windows.
The new Safari includes several features that are highly integrated with OS X and Apple’s ecosystem, so that a Windows version would not have the same level of functionality, which would justify a change in strategy of this type. Anyway, the company has not said anything about it yet.
For those using OS X can download and yes, Safari 6.0 includes the following new features:
- Unified search box called “Smart Search Field,” which recognizes URLs and search terms (like the “Omnibox” Chrome or the “AwesomeBar” in Firefox)
- Offline Reading List: Allows you to store a website on a reading list, to check it later when you have no internet connection.
- Do Not Track: A function that allows web sites to tell you do not want to track your online activity.
- Password pane: Allows you to manage users and passwords to access different sites.
- Baidu: Now is made for Chinese users.
