Safari vs IE - Prelims
The installation went fine and was quicker than that for IE 7 (given it validates genuine Windows PC, installs malicious software removal tool) etc. However, it did try to install additional software that it thought was useful for me and the ones that i respectfully didn't install.
I am a first time user of Safari and some of my initial impressions are as follows:
- Safari takes longer to start up than IE. While starting IE on my machine is a snap, it takes longer for Safari to start.
- While Safari makes a claim on it being faster than IE, I would not agree with the same. At best, they both load at the same time.
- The text comes out rendered very well on IE and Safari does an average job. See the screenshots below.
In my few mins of normal usage, Safari didn't crash and so didn't IE 7. All the features of Safari are available on IE 7. So there is nothing extra!For me given everything is same, IE7 does a better job of showing the webpages. I am staying with IE7!
