Swift: Almost Safari for Windows

A new Web browser called Swift is kind of exciting news for people who do not have a Mac. It is based on the Apple WebKit rendering engine, which is what Safari uses.

Swift is currently a 0.1 alpha release, and as such just barely works. Well, it actually didn't work at all when I tried it. Nevertheless I think this is promising. More cross-platform browsing is a good thing the way I see it.

Don't start thinking you can use this as an excuse for not checking stuff in the real Safari though. Especially now with Apple completing the transition to Intel, all web professionals really should budget for a Mac. One machine, almost any operating system.
