Webware 100 winner: Safari

Webware 100 winner: Safari

Category: Browsing

Safari is Apple's Web browser. It's currently in its fourth version, which got Cover Flow-style bookmark browsing, history search, a visual bookmarks start page, and a large-size tab style that mimics Google's Chrome.

Safari began as an in-house replacement to Microsoft's Internet Explorer for Mac, which Microsoft didn't update or improve on at the same rate as it did for its Windows counterpart--and eventually dropped shortly after the release of Safari.

In 2007, Safari got quite a bit of attention for its inclusion as the default Web browser in Apple's iPhone, where it remains as the only way to browse the Web on the popular device.
