@reis.quarteu

The Secunia Advisory for Safari 5. can be seen as follows....shows a highly critical vulnerability....even when all patches/security updates, have been applied :-
http://secunia.com/advisories/product/30282/

If Secunia are stating End of Life... perhaps they're aware of additional info regarding the lack of support.
It would seem you'd be best advised to seek a much safer alternative browser than leave yourself exposed.

Hope it helps.......regards.....mogs

Apple released Safari 6.0.5 for Mac OS X on 5th June. The latest Windows release is still 5.1.7. This may be a Secunia error.

I've not been able to find an official Apple statement but it looks as if they are discontinuing Safari for Windows if these and similar articles are to be believed

Thank you very much for your answers! :)
I just use Safari on Windows to test web sites developed by my company. I think I'll have to find another testing enviroment for Safari. Any suggestions? :-)

Receive my best regards! :)

Thanks for your answer! :)

I already have an iPhone with Safari 6 on it, but it's not suited to test how web sites behave in larger resolutions. I was wondering if there is any web-based Safari simulator that I could use to test our web sites.

Many thanks in advance! :)
