Safari is designed to emphasize the browsing, not the browser. The browser frame is a single pixel wide. You see a scroll bar only when needed. By default, there's no status bar. Instead, a progress indicator turns as your page loads.

This is the last official release of the Safari browser to come from Apple. At the time it supported Windows XP SP2 and SP3, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It may run on more recent releases of Windows under a compatibility layer although it's not representative of the current state of Safari in macOS or iOS. Safari 5.1.7 is based off WebKit version 534.57.2, released in May 2012.
