Using the Safari Browser for Windows XP
When you first run the Safari Browser for Windows XP, it immediately displays a list of popular websites, such as Yahoo, Amazon, CNN, eBay, YouTube, etc. The full list of twelve sites (by default – up to 24 can be listed by clicking Edit in the bottom left then using the Small | Medium | Large buttons in the lower right of the window) is displayed as a vista of thumbnails, and as you use Safari more and more your own preferred favorite slowly replace the initial list. Should you want to keep some of these, you can easily drag a favorite page from the address bar to the bookmarks toolbar right below it.
Visiting a website is as easy as typing in the URL in the area labeled Go to this address, while the Search area has a choice of Google and Yahoo as search engines.
Safari offers tabbed browsing just like Windows Internet Explorer 7 and 8 and Mozilla Firefox, with a new tab being opened by pressing CTRL+T or using the File menu in the top right corner (represented by a sheet of paper with a corner turned down).
Here are directions for changing your homepage from the initial Safari choice, or adding multiple homepages.
With a minimalist design, simplistic menu icons (the back and forward icons are next to the address bar, while full menu items can be viewed by tapping Alt on your keyboard) the Safari browser for Windows XP is a superb, functional and fast alternative to Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
