Steve Jobs just announced that the public beta of Safari 3 is available as a free download, but the real kicker is of course that it’s available for Windows now as well. The old Mac / Windows barriers just keep on falling apart, don’t they?

The Windows version looks just like the Mac version and (according to Apple) it’s two times faster than Internet Explorer and 1.6 times faster than Firefox – but before you get your hopes up you should bear in mind that this release is rightfully marked beta.
