Of course, differences exist between the engine integrated into Mac OS X 10.7 and the Widows version. Some functions which are specific to Lion like managing multi-touch movements with the Mac’s track pad are of course not available. Some other features remain exclusive to Lion like the new download button which has appears to the right of the search field which shows the download progress and download list,hardware acceleration for HTML5 Canvas elements. etc.

The core changes are available on all versions like improvements made to Safari 5.1’s core like multimedia caching with the HTML5 cache application, MathML, the Web Open Font, CSS3 (auto censuring, vertical text, text emphasis) and formatted XML files. Safari 5.1 has been announced with new treatment architecture ( multi-processing ) so that web sites which no longer respond don’t block the entire browser.
