I have mixed feelings about it, but I think it has potential, at  
least. I find Safari a bit "cleaner" feeling (and like its rendering  
a bit better) than Firefox. The newer WebKit builds fix some of the  
thing I don't like about it, such as lack of WYSIWYG support on web  
forms. Don't get me wrong, I like Firefox too, but I suspect Safari  
might be able to appeal to some people who don't like the Firefox way  
of doing certain things (like RSS, for example). Incidentally, since  
Microsoft basically copied Safari's look and feel for IE7, its UI is  
already familiar as well.

The big question I didn't hear addressed is if Safari for Windows  
will link with .Mac. If so, I'd find it really useful, since my one  
Windows system would have all of my bookmarks on it.
