A brief introduction to Safari

As we know, Safari is Mac OS X built-in web browser. It employs KDE and KHTML as its computing core. On January 7, 2003, the first beta version was released and becomes the default browser for Mac OS X 10.3 and the newer. It is also the appointed browser for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The first beta version for Windows was released in June of 2007, supporting Windows XP and Windows Vista. Now, it supports Windows 7. But disappointingly, Safari 5.1.7 is the last version which supports Windows.

Safari is a browser and also a platform. No matter running on Mac, or on iPhone, Safari can provide users with wonderful networking experience. It owns concise interface which is made up of multiple areas, including Forward/Backward/Bookmark/Add Bookmark area, address bar, searching bar, tab bar, and browsing area. It adopts intelligent address bar, and address bar is separated from searching bar, and users are unable to search contents from searching bar directly.

Currently, the latest Safari browser is Safari 7 which is built in iOS 7. Safari 7 is much more powerful. For example, intelligent searching bar will be hidden by default, so users can see more contents than before. Through performing scrolling operations, users can unhide it.
