Apple’s safari and windows 7.

Dear friends, It has been quite a while since i have had the "pleasure" of surfing on Safari! There was a ruckus over iTunes and Windows sometime back. I would greatly appreciate if you can share your experience regarding the compatibility of Safari with Win.7 and iTunes and our version of Windows. Thank you! Regards, Sreedhav.

Well I can't say about Safari as I don't use it, but I haven't had an issue with iTunes. I've used iTunes without a problem for my university classes.

If you're having a specific issue with either, there are plenty of helpful individuals around here to assist

I don't use it a lot, but have it installed. I did have a problem at first getting Itunes installed on windows 7, it appeard that many people who had Hell computer had the same issue. The problem went away after I had Windows Updates. All has worked just fine since then, with both Safari and Itunes.

Dear TheIntruder,

I installed Safari and the window that opened was with a "sort of" speed dial function! All the (?9)12 small windows were already pre-installed with .coms, and it appeared to me that you have no choice there!

For ex. ,i like listening to the "Aunty" i.e BBC World News, but there's no way i could fit it in somewhere there! The choice of sites is totally yours in the speed dials in Opera,FF,Chrome and Palemoon! Does IE9RC has the speed dial? Pardon me for asking as i downloaded it only today!

Regards and thanks,
Sreedhav

Use the edit button in the bottom left to pin or remove sites. I think new sites will show up as you visit them and then you can pin or remove them as well.

Safari 4 was OK but Safari 5 is rubbish on my PC if I copy & paste a link from another browser it doesn't work.
Very buggy on my PC.
I cannot believe its as bad for most people or Safari would have scrapped the windows version by now.
