Owning a Mac has been one of my greatest dreams. I’ve been nagging my parents to get me one but it’s just too darn expensive for us. I’ve been saving up for a Mac, the closest one to current reaches of my pockets is the Mac Mini, but at present it’s still years away. Sighs…
Nowadays, the experience of having a Mac has become closer to reality all thanks to the release of Safari for the Windows-based machines. I just downloaded the beta version and this post was written in Safari. It’s a totally refreshing look, feel and experience but has whetted my craving for the Mac even more.
On my aging machine, Safari does load itself and render pages faster than Firefox. I even had a look under the hood and it consumes less memory than my default browser right now. Wonder how all this would be like on my Ubuntu machine. Nonetheless, I now have a sudden dilemma of whether switching to Safari as my default browser or stick to Firefox. The only thing that prevents me from doing so is the lack of the Google Toolbar for Safari.
A day or two of more exploring and tinkering with would help me make up my mind. Maybe it would even help get my work-flow organized. We shall see.
