Yes that is right. For some reason Safari's font rendering engine makes the web sites look much better than IE, Firefox, Chrome or Opera. And Safari is now available for PC as well.
Without getting too much into this (Joel did) here is a picture to illustrate it. First is the example of Mac rendering below is PC:
I have noticed this while initiating change on my site design. I have a goal in my mind and so far I have only re-styled the home page (to regular viewers - how do you like it?).
Here is comparison of how the site looks in Firefox and Safari (click to open full size). You can immediately see the difference in text rendering and how smoother and more polished the text looks in Safari (below).
Did I mention that Safari loads lighting fast (faster the Chrome). I would start using it this instant if I could get my Firefox plugins ported to it somehow - can't leave without them.
