Apple claims Safari is compliant with the latest Web standards. Although I’m already noting some weird issues with my Portfolio pages of this site. See screenshot, [.gif, 199 KB] which shows oddities around the individual piece thumbnails. Perhaps it’s my combination of floated elements nested inside a positioned parent that it doesn’t quite yet handle. The pseudo-class selector
:hover also produces some buggy effects in my primary navigation above. Mark Pilgrim points out a few more early issues with Apple’s new release.
Apple is really pushing [read: forcing] their customers to upgrade to Jaguar (OS 10.2), as Safari is yet another example of software that will only run on Jaguar, which costs earlier users US$129 for the update. While I think it’s fantastic that Apple continues to push ahead with new software and OS upgrades, it seems they won’t be giving many free handouts anymore.
Update: As of July 2003, I’ve redesigned my portfolio pages. The wierdness in Safari mentioned above no longer exists.
