When Apple released Safari 6.0 for OS X Lion this morning (and included it with Mountain Lion), we noticed that a version of the web browser is not available for Windows. Sure enough, some users running Apple’s Safari download website on PCs are also not seeing the download. It appears that earlier Safari versions for Windows are still available. Safari 6.0 includes features that are integrated into OS X and Apple’s own ecosystem itself – like offline Reading List and Password Pane – so it makes sense for Apple to pass on Safari 6.0 for Windows.
Perhaps Apple dropping Safari for Windows is also a by-product of Metro; wonder how long iTunes will last as an app?—

Perhaps the update will come in the future. In the meantime, active WebKit nightly builds for Windows are available.
