Find my collection of Safari bugs here. I've tested on Safari 1.1 (v125).
Dive into mark has an
excellent lists of bugs in Safari. And Apple has a document on
support in Safari. The
weblog reports on Safari's progress.
Links with both a forward and back slash in the URL,
cause Safari not to resolve links on the page correctly (back slash
characters are seen as literals in this case). Workaround, always
use forward slashes. (testcase).
textarea element doesn't support the CSS overflow:visible property. Just try the testcase under Internet Explorer (no support at Mozilla either)... (testcase)
28-08-2003: IFRAME elements with the CSS property
display:none can't be posted to (with attribute target is
iframe's name. Workaround: use visiblity:hidden, and make sure it's
at the end of the document, or use a width and height of 0px.
Solved in 1.2
: There's some problem with the CSS
pseudo-class. See "remake" of tweakers.net
. The first menuline works perfect (CSS only) but in the second menu line, the popup's won't go away. tba
width feature of the
window.open method wrong,
can/will lead to misrendering of the google search entry in the addressbar
- Brushed Metal interface .
Workaround: Interface Builder.
26-10-2003: Language detection for the spelling checker. At lots of sites you can post messages. Because I post both Dutch and English messages, I must constantly switch languages (the language option should also be availble on the context menu of course). It's reasonable the reply language is the same as page itself, so the
xml:lang attribute could be used for this. It's even a w3c suggestion. The downside however, I haven't seen a site I post to, specifying the content language :-( (testcase).
25-10-2003: A mute knob, to silence all those flashy flash advertisements with soundeffects to attract your attention and those really irritating, but well meant midi background music on bad home pages.
25-10-2003: No sound from pages loaded in background-tabs. OK, this is a difficult one: why not disable sound on background-windows? So this is not a feature request, but a problem.
On his weblog, Dave Hyatt is
asking for some feedback on Apple's
browser, Safari. Because everybody is
tired of the TAB-like discussions, I'll only suggest not yet mentioned features.
OK, not really an UI feature, but I couldn't think another place to express this
opinion. Especially for Web Applications, this technique is
imho pretty important.
- Bookmarks have the tendency to grow beyond limits. Create some tools to
help keep it organized.
Ideas: Keep statistics like Last Clicked
(like iTunes' Last Played), Number of times clicked. Add a command, to check if all bookmarks
are still valid.
