Safari for windows - Beta Day One and problems!

Steffi28
Less than two hours after the beta of Safari for windows was released, security engineers found an exploit.

Does this mean that even Apple cant make a secure browser to run on a MS OS or is it the Apple browser thats to fault?

My favourite quote from this is

"On the OS X platform," he continued, "Apple has enjoyed the same luxury and the same curse as Internet Explorer has had on the Windows platform, namely intimate operating system knowledge." As a result, Safari for Windows may be expecting other layers of the operating system to provide security - layers which aren't present on Windows, especially since Microsoft has naturally adapted its transport layer security for optimum use with IE7.

Apples way of passing the blame?
