Starting tomorrow, I am recommending that all Mac users run Camino or Firefox instead of Safari. It seems that the default Mac browser does not follow standards that much of the rest of the web world subscribes to, disabling useful functions in many critical web applications. And if only the user feedback were meaningful. Blackbaud Faculty Access for the Web times out with Safari. Moodle (or any web app using TinyMCE) doesn’t display the text formatting buttons. I don’t know what exactly the development team got wrong, but this browser is just not useful in a multiplatform world. Does anyone else know what happened at Apple?
