Using Apple's Safari to Browse the Internet
Part of the The Internet For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Safari is the default browser for most Mac users. There’s a free version for Windows, too. Safari works differently than other browsers, but it’s still small and fast.
Safari comes supplied on the Macintosh, iPhone, and iPad. You can download the Windows version at www.apple.com/safari.
