Link of the Day: Installing Apple’s Safari Browser On Ubuntu 7.10 With PlayOnLinux

Another reason I love HowToForge, you can learn how to do just about anything from the folks that contribute there. I have not tested this howto, so if you try it and get it to work let me know.

This guide explains how you can install Apple’s Safari browser on Ubuntu 7.10. As there is no Linux version of Safari, we will run it under Wine. We will use a tool called PlayOnLinux to install Safari under Wine. With PlayOnLinux you can install lots of Windows games and some Windows applications (such as Office 2003, IE6, MS Money, etc.) on Linux. Installing Safari on Linux is good for people such as web designers who have switched to Linux but still need to test their web sites in other browsers.

  1. Nice, have not been aware there something like “HowToForge”. Thankfully the address been easy as its Google #1 for that term ☺.
    Thanks for sharing – maybe I try it when I reinstall Linux some time in the future as I like the Safari font rendering method.
