The famous American multinational corporation focusing on consumer electronics and closely related software products, Apple has launched the latest version of its Safari web browser – Safari 3.1, which the company claims as the world’s fastest web browser for Mac and Windows PCs (1.9 times faster than IE 7 [Internet Explorer 7] and 1.7 times faster than Firefox 2), aiming to enhance your web browsing experience.

In addition, JavaScript is also said to load faster (up to 6 times) with new Safari which is the first browser to support the latest innovative web standards needed to deliver the next generation of highly interactive Web 2.0 experiences.

“Safari 3.1 for Mac and Windows is blazingly fast, easy to use and features an elegant user interface,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “And best of all, Safari supports the latest audio, video and animation standards for an industry-leading Web 2.0 experience.”

According to the company, “Safari 3.1 is the first browser to support the new video and audio tags in HTML 5 and the first to support CSS Animations. Safari also supports CSS Web Fonts, giving designers limitless choices of fonts to create stunning new web sites.”
