Apple's Safari in RH9?

OK, perhaps I'm an idiot for trying to do this, but does anyone know if it'd be possible for me to use Apple's Safari Web Browser in Linux (RH9 - Shrike) or is it architecture sensitive?

Just use konqueror, safari is based on khtml and kjs, the html and javascript rendering engines from konqueror.
Apple have been sending patches to the kde developers and you'll see them in KDE3.2 when it arrives, a lot of them are in cvs now if you like bleeding edge stuff :-)

"Architecture sensitive"?

MacOS X is a completely different OS. It is proprietary, the API implementations cannot simple be ported or recompiled for Linux as they can in reverse. To run MacOS apps you would need to build something like Wine - not a trivial undertaking.

As has been pointed out, Apple simply used the KDE code anyway.
