Straight Angle™: Disappointed with Apple Safari for Windows!

Disappointed with Apple Safari for Windows! 

When I first read about the release of Apple Safari for Windows, I was jumping in joy- It's been my wish to use it ever since I saw Safari working with Mac. I wanted to use the browser- if not for anything atleast for the user interface. The moment I was able to, I downloaded Safari and installed it. And then began my saga of trying to get to open a few pages in Safari.

The pages that I tried to open in Safari in the same order in tabs.

Apple (This is the home page)

I was never able to get the Apple site open for me in the 20 Minutes that I had kept the window open. In the 20 minutes, I have downloaded, Maxthon browser, installed it and even browsed all my unread items in my Bloglines account. It is fast.

The first time I am disappointed with Apple. Hopefully, this is the last time too.

It can be zippity in some pages, but in the age of broadband, who cares?
*Ugly theme/buttons
*Ugly window buttons (minimize/maximize/restore/close)
*Clicking taskbar does not minimize it
*"You haven't entered anything in Google box" Geez, maybe I just wanted to intuitively go to Google.com
*"great" Apple UI everywhere, for example, windows only resizable via bottom right.
*Click on a .wmv, it opens in WMP. In IE7 or FF, they give choice to download or open, and FF even lets me pref to automatically download
*Lack of favicons in bookmarks bar
*RSS button unstandard. IE and FF have come to truce with this
*no autoscroll
*middle click doesn't close tabs, open tabs from bookmarks bar
*No "recently closed tabs"
*no status bar by default
*no inline spell check
*no double click tab bar to get new tab
*crashed twice already, FF crashes maybe once a week
*no adblocking
*no "google/yahoo search suggest"
*backspace doesn't go back
*edit bookmarks name/address separately, huh?
