lightbulb moment about iPhone and Safari for Windows ®

So, I watched the WWDC keynote, and I was like, “Why is Safari for Windows such a big deal that it is the ‘one last thing’ in Steve’s keynote?”

Well, it just hit me as I was reading this. Safari on Windows isn’t there to draw users to the Mac experience, it’s there so that people developing web apps for the iPhone have something to test with. The iPhone uses a “full version” of the Safari engine. Of course this needs to be tested, since each browser has its own quirks. There was no other way to test for safari than to buy a Mac. Until now.

Okay, now I can relax.
