Download record for Safari – Macitynet.it
300 thousand downloads in just 24 hours.
This is the amazing record achieved by Safari, the new highly anticipated Apple browser.
Safari, according to Phil Shiller who released the data, beat iTunes for the number of copies downloaded, which held the previous record with 100,000 downloads in 24 hours.
The data is even more incredible if you consider that 20% of all yesterday's traffic on Apple servers was generated by downloads of the Mac-branded browser.
The data provided by Apple demonstrate how much a Mac and Mac-style alternative to the maddening slowness of Microsoft Explorer was strongly desired among the Mac public, a fully satisfied desire that has decreed an indisputable success for Safari, the fastest Mac browser currently available
