Apple will venture into Microsoft's turf again, this time making a version of its web browser Safari compatible with Windows. Microsoft's Internet Explorer commands 78% of the browser market compared to Safari's 5%, reports the Wall Street Journal, but Apple's interest in expanding its share is only part of the story: The iPhone, scheduled for release June 29, uses Safari.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed the Windows-tailored browser during yesterday's keynote speech at an annual developer conference. The move could be defensive, say analysts; the Mac version of Safari is notoriously incompatible with many sites designed for Windows. Hoping to continue breaking down the barriers Apple breached by making iTunes compatible with Windows, Jobs says, "We dream big."
