browsers on windows7

September 24th, 2009 by Sebastian Leave a reply »

With updating iTunes to the latest version I’ve also installed Safari4 – Now my windows7 has the following four browsers installed:

  • Internet Explorer 8
  • Firefox 3.5.3
  • Google Chrome 2.0.172.43
  • Safari 4.0.3

So it’s time to have a closer look to the integration in windows7 for each of them…

  • Chrome is only showing the active tab of a window :|
