    With upgrading my iPhone iTunes reported a new version of Safari and it downloaded the program to my PC's desktop.

    I am now testing the Safari browser for PC and i must say i kinda like it compared to IE and FF.

    Anybody else using it?

    Yep, I am - this version - v4 - is leaps and bounds ahead of v3.x

    I like it a lot.

    I'm using it. It's very good I like the show top sites bit.
    A couple of things that annoys me is it likes to crash when loading PDF's and also it uses more of your cpu

    Google Chrome is based on the Webkit engine used in Safari, so try that if a few of Safari's features irritate you.

    Top sites are indeed mega brilliant, i know have a complete screen with all kinds of tabs open: awesome.

    Is there a way to import my IE8 bookmarks?

    @Simon, the RD styles don't have that annoying little black space between the header and body in Safari!

    Bram check out the STC Supported leagues section, that occasionally looks weird in Safari

    Yeah, that's because IE sucks monkey nuts

    Safari doesn't seem to have an import function like other browsers have.

    EDIT: STC Forum looks fine to me in Safari
