Any of you guys using Safari to view the forum? This is actually my 3rd attempt to post this message, it hangs so much in it. I had to go to IE to actually post it. I was wondering if somethign was changed in the site, because I used to be able to view and post with safari. Weird, and Safari is fully standards compliant too

What OS are you running? I know that Safari runs best under OS 10.2.3. and greater. It will still run on the lower X OS's but it's not as stable. I love Safari, it's given me no problems on this site. So check and see, that might just be the problem. If not, just reinstall. Good luck.

yeah, there seems to be no clear pattern, the second post I made to this thread was with Safari, no problems. I had to go back to IE to post this.

Very Strange? I did hear that OS 10.2.4 has a small bug in it. The bug effects the computers clock.?. I have not installed the update on my computer yet, still waiting to hear if Apple has fixed the problem. My brother has an Apple too and ran into this problem. He called Apple and they advised if you are on a high speed internet connection, set your computers clock to the network. That way, the internet governs your clock.?. Still, I want that bug fixed.

Yeah, me too. I like the whole browser, actually. There is nothing better, IMO.

Luckily Safari is using the rendering engine from Konquerer which is fairly decent, so they've been able to skip a lot of development. But I suspect it will be a while before its up to speed with IE and Mozilla.
I will be trying to make the new site work with as many browsers as possible, but obviously we cant support every random browser 100%. I will be following the w3 spec as closely as possible so compliant browsers will work. Focus will be on IE and Mozilla/Netscape as they account for 99% of the browsers used to view this site. So far the new site is usable with Safari but it doesnt always behave how it should.
I'll happily look into website bug reports concerning Safari. But I dont have a Mac or Safari so I will be limited in what I can do.

I haven't had any problems with Safari here except the chat console. Before the last Java release the console wouldn't load. Now, for me it loads and I can chat, but the refresh rate is horribly slow. schwar told me about AthenaIRC so problem solved. I get occasional timeouts, but overall Safari is working (I saw there are some ssl sites it won't work with, and some ftp sites it won't work with) pretty damn good for a beta.
