Back then I expected a lot more anticipation, but it seemed like almost no one cared. I guess if you’re using Windows and aren’t satisfied by IE, you’re probably using Firefox already. I know Safari renders more accurately then Firefox, but it doesn’t appear to be as stable (on Windows).
It will be interesting to see if Apple’s entry into the Windows browser market gains any traction. I don’t know how Apple will make it more attractive then Firefox. That is, unless they bundle it with iTunes.
I, for one welcome our new Apple overlords.
