Safari for Windows Scrapped
Annoying as I am one of the few forced to use it at work! Apple's new Safari snubs older Macs, drops Windows version ? The Register
Also this means SIMS Learning Gateway will only support Internet Explorer for Windows users as they don't support recent versions of Firefox (unless an LTS release has come out and changed this) and the only other supported browser on Windows is Safari.

Yay. The wicked witch is dead. Try IE9 its decent. I do take your point about browser versions. We have all sorts of messy web apps here some of which only support IE7/8 and Firefox13, some that only run right under chrome and some that need IE9 to work their best. What the hell happened to this universal cloud rubbish they were going on about when every yahoo developer writes the web portals to solely push their own personal browser agenda. You end up with a brower per app at which point you may as well just have a native app.

I've found IE9 to be nothing but buggy and unstable...

Guess it's down to the sites that you visit and which way their devs have customised it. I use mostly older computers and 9 is the quickest and most efficient for me with the sites that I visit. There are still plenty of devs pushing their own Firefox only or Chrome only views about design. Then you get messy sites that fail in all browsers and rely on the browser to cover up as much of their fail as possible.

Can't really see it being missed by anyone. It's not like it brought anything new to the party that IE,Chrome or firefox didn't already have.

I mainly use Chrome now after ditching FF many versions ago..
Occasionally I'll use IE9 - mainly for anything MS Related..
Used Safari for a while but wasn't overly impressed with it

Nothing wrong with IE9, I made a switch to Waterfox at home though as it's rather fast.
Capita will need to start supporting Firefox properly though with only one browser left on Windows. Last I checked they only supported up to FF4.5!
