Apple's Browser, growing rapidly in popularity, will be used for any SharedBook application and with any SharedBook client product.

NEW YORK – February 19, 2010 – Reflecting growing usage by Safari users of its multiple applications, SharedBook is adding support for Safari. Starting in early March,, SharedBook's application for transforming a blog into a book,, a collaborative platform for Microsoft Office and Open Office documents,, a platform for the creation of personally inscribed books, and the rest of SharedBook's white-labeled products can be accessed using Safari as well as IE and Firefox.

In response to consistent and growing requests, all of our applications can now be used by visitors who prefer Safari as their browser. "We saw holiday sales quadruple in 2009, but we also saw visits from Safari users climb 50% versus the previous year," said SharedBook CEO Caroline Vanderlip. "We certainly heard from them, too, and we're very happy to deliver what they've asked for."

Safari users among the many SharedBook applications now comprise as much as 12.5% of visitors in a given month, a percentage significantly greater than any of the publicly available estimates of overall Safari browser share across the web. "Given this increasing concentration of Safari fans among our visitors, it would be wrong not to welcome them with the same level of accommodation," said Vanderlip, "so going forward, their experiences at SharedBook will be what they have a right to expect."
