During his Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that Apple would make the final version of its
Web browser available for download Monday. It’s available for download from Apple’s Web site and through the Software Update System Preferences pane.
Jobs told the assembled developers that Safari has seen over five million downloads of the beta versions in the past six months; version 1.0 will be the default browser for the new Power Mac G5s coming in August. Also, Apple released a Safari SDK (Software Developer Kit), so that developers can embed the browser’s HTML rendering engine directly into their applications.
Safari 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.2 (“Jaguar”) or higher and is optimized for Mac OS X 10.2.3 “Jaguar” or later. The final version of the browser is localized for English, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, French Canadian, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Korean and Simplified Chinese.
