    Safari browser

    I came across a website that says one can download safari browser on windows OS. I assumed safari could only be installed and used on Apple OS. Does anyone know whether this download from the website I provided below is legit and whether safari can be downloaded and used on a windows OS computer?

    No, Apple doesn't support Safari on Windows anymore. If you read the link you provided, it says "A Windows version, now discontinued, was available from 2007 to 2012."

    Why would you want Safari on Windows in the first place?

    Midknyte, my aunt heard from a friend of hers that she could print more than the limit of 2 manufacturer coupons when using multiple browsers on the same computer. She had mentioned whether she could install the safari browser on her computer. When I found that website (link I provided), I only read the OS system requirements on the top left of that page and didn't read the rest. I do see that it says that the windows version has been discontinued in 2012. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I will pass this info to her. I appreciate the reply and help.

    I still don't see why Safari would be a choice. She could use Chrome or Firefox, and then Internet Explorer or Edge. Or even Opera or Vivaldi. Oh well.

    If the website records her IP Address, different browsers won't matter.

    I was wondering if vpn service would be helpful? I read that they are good for security and privacy.
