IE vs The Alternative Browser
I've just installed Safari 4 Beta for Windows Vista:
Apple - Safari - Download Safari - Download the world?s fastest and most innovative browser for Mac and PC
Seems pretty nice (and quick) from just a fast glance and surfing around my favourite sites.
I really like the Top Sites feature:
Continuing to explore....

After tweaking Firefox using http://www.winvistaclub.com/forum/wi...any-money.html The new Safari is no faster.
Also Safari (Personal opinion only) will never be as good as IE or Firefox for Windows. I have tried all the browsers out there and I would say that Safari is nicest to look at but not the best or fastest, but you can customise Firefox to look the same. JR

After looking over the results, I decided to give Opera a try and am really diggin' it so far! Though ultimately, its Firefox's extensions like the great Adblock that always win me over.
A reported 100/100 on acid test though!!!

I installed the Safari 4 Beta on the day itself it was released. My favorite feature is Top Sites. Also I liked the ability to show thumbnail previews for bookmark and history pages.

Thanks for this James, but did you also hear that it is not as secure as IE8 and Firefox 3 ? It's quite hard to know what to believe as every person seems to have a different opinion. I would be quite interested to wait for your follow up on this after you've had it for a while to know what you think then and to see what come up via such things as Security Garden and Donna security flash.

^ No browser is safe from hackers or other malicious things. Just install and experience the new browser.

Voting for FF since I have been using it for last one and half year.
