PRESS RELEASE January 20, 2003

Safari Downloads Top 1 Million

CUPERTINO, California—January 20, 2003—Apple® today announced that more than 1 million copies of its new Safari™ web browser have been downloaded since the free public beta was posted on Apple’s web site (www.apple.com) on January 7.
“Safari is a home run, with over a million downloads in less than two weeks,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Mac users have discovered that Safari beta release is already the fastest browser on the Mac and possibly the best browser in the world.”
Safari is the fastest browser ever created for the Mac®, and one of the most innovative and easiest to use browsers on any platform. Safari’s highly-tuned rendering engine loads pages over three times faster than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer for the Mac and runs Javascript over twice as fast. Safari’s innovative features include Google search capabilities integrated directly into the toolbar; SnapBack, a new way to instantly snap back up to search results or the top level of any website after browsing down one or more levels; a completely new way to name, organize and present bookmarks; and automatic “pop-up” ad blocking.
The Safari public beta is available as a free download at www.apple.com/safari, requires Mac® OS X version 10.2 “Jaguar” and is optimized for Mac OS X v10.2.3. Safari is a compact 3MB download that occupies only 7.1MB of hard drive space. The final version of Safari will be made available later in 2003.
Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar” requires a minimum of 128MB of memory and is designed to run on the following Apple products: eMac™, iMac®, iBook®, Power Macintosh® G3, Power Mac® G4 and any PowerBook® introduced after May 1998.
Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Apple is committed to bringing the best personal computing experience to students, educators, creative professionals and consumers around the world through its innovative hardware, software and Internet offerings.
