Following Steve Jobs’ MacWorld keynote speech, there has been much hubbub about Apple’s new web browser, Safari, not to be confused with Internet Safari, the kid-friendly web browser put out by Heartsoft. Dive Into Mark probably has one of the better technical reviews of Safari out there at this time. Although Mark’s review focuses on items of interest to web developers, he includes links to other pages which review Safari’s features.
Hopefully, with two compliant HTML rendering platforms on the market, Gecko and KHTML, someone will wake up and take notice. Perhaps web developers will start to code for standards rather than for Internet Explorer. Or perhaps Microsoft will fix IE to be more standards-compliant in order to fight back. Either way, standards win. Sure, those are high expectations, but I can dream, can’t I?
