Safari 6 arrives for OS X but not Windows

Apple has released Safari 6, which boasts a number of new and catch-up features, including a unified address bar, visual tabs, iCloud tabs, sharing and an offline reading list. Apple’s usual aggressive stance regarding upgrade cycles also leaves Mac users running Snow Leopard and earlier systems without Safari 6; additionally, there’s speculation Safari for Windows won’t get further upgrades, given that references to that version of the browser have been largely eradicated from Apple’s website.

Designers and developers we asked for comment seemed untroubled by the possible cancellation of Safari for Windows. “From a testing perspective, Safari on Windows is completely off the radar for us and our clients, unlike its Mac sibling,” said a spokesperson from agency Include. However, no Safari for Windows also impacts on Windows-based web designers, who’ll no longer have Apple’s browser for testing on.
