I installed Safari 3.0.1 for Windows (with QuickTime) from
http://www.apple.com/safari. I installed and tested it in Windows XP SP2.
Attempting to verify your java installation (after clicking "Do I
have java?") at java.com crashes Safari.
Attempting to start FirstGlance in Jmol, or a Jmol-based tutorial (on
DNA or hemoglobin, at http://www.umass.edu/molvis/bme3d) crashes Safari.
I reported these to Apple with Safari's bug reporter.
Some (most?) Chime sites work. At http://molviz.org, most of the
tutorials work. Exceptions are noted below.
At "Molecular Vibrations: IR Spectrum", the IR spectrum fails to
display. This spectral display is produced (when it works) by the Chime plugin.
Although I got the main DNA page (from http://molviz.org) to display
once, the "small and green" test link failed to change the large pink
single atom in Chime. After the first attempt, repeated attempts to
display the main page reproducibly crashed Safari. I reported the
crashes to Apple.
What is hilarious is to see Microsoft asking you to report Safari's
crashes to them, in the automatic window that pops up when any
application crashes in Windows XP.

I also tested Safari for Win some days ago, thinking as Eric of Jmol
compatibility, but quickly uinstalled it because in several of my
pages, css-formatted text did not even show up.
I don't recall now if Java worked, but I rather think it did -or
maybe I didn't get that far-.
