be run from a flash drive. The tab management and
content blocking options also go far beyond what
IE or most other browsers can do. Subjectively

options, it seems to load pages -much- faster than
plain vanilla Internet Explorer - some sort of
enhanced memory caching perhaps.
I typically use Firefox 3.6 more often these days,
but Safari (4.0.4) has come a long way since the
initial buggy / crash-prone Betas. It is very
fast at rendering pages, even compared with both
Firefox, Opera, and Chrome - and the interface is
very clean (which isn't as good depending on your
perspective). The history and "cover flow-ish"
bookmarks and history is actually quite
functional and useful. One thing of note about
recent builds of Safari for Windows is memory
usage behavior. In casual browsing sessions with
multiple tabs open, it rarely exceeds 400 MB. A
bit of a unfair comparison to Firefox (which which
I use NoScript and a handful of other mainly
visual/chrome extensions), Firefox's memory usage
even with v3.6 can sometimes far exceed this.
One criticism of mine is the minimalistic chrome
(i.e., UI), but digging into some of the
Preferences reveals that you can customize it to
