Not quite Safari, as in the web browser that made the Apple iPhone famous, but the new browser from Wake3 is based on the WebKit architecture that Safari is built on. The browser supports Mobile Ajax as well and renders websites as they would on a desktop browser. However, the cool zooming and panning capabilities of Safari on the iPhone aren’t ported over it seems.
For now, it looks like I might just stick with Opera 8.65, although Wake3 does look to be a promising start. Opera, Firefox, and NetFront all have plans on updating their browsers to support AJAX and some advanced scrolling/zooming/rendering capabilities for mobile devices.
While it isn’t available yet, you can watch the demo video below. One word of caution: please turn your volume down or mute it as the video has some annoying background music.
