Safari 2.0.1

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
What's the verdict? It's mixed on Versiontracker. Then there's this: http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?...05083108084689 http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?...05083008412941 etc.





So far, Safari in Tiger has been a piece of crap. it's the crashiest version, and maybe slower and more memory-wasting than the Panther one.



Safari really hasn't done much since like .8 besides Tabs and RSS.



It doesn't even have a useful History feature, or Download window. IE freakin 5 which hasn't been updated in half a DECADE does some things better.



I reeeally hope opening up WebKit helps and people help solve a lot of this ridiculous bugginess.

    Safari works fine here. It has only gotten better with 2.0.x.

    Safari is in some ways slower than in Panther (1.2) but I think it has gotten better in other areas. No longer does the fan kick-in when there's more than one smilie in a thread. Nor does it refuse to open bank sites anymore. It's a little bit more stable (for me at least) and while it's not any faster, it's certainly OK for surfing.



    Still prefer Camino/Firefox though. I guess I got used to them.

    Safari will no longer allow me to access my York University website.

    It works for me but I still see Firefox as far superior.

    Safari is a problem for me. When I first sign on to my homepage on Comcast, everything is fine. However, after I view some other information and return to my home page, it displays absolutely nothing but a blank screen. If this is Apple's way of improving their programs, give me the old ones back!

    I updated. No difference.



    One thing I wish they would do is bundle the latest version of Flash. And it would be nice if Flash didn't suck too...Maybe Adobe will help that. I guess we'll find out.

    Safari sucks. It crashes all the time.

    As a counter-point, Safari has crashed on me maybe three times in the past six months.



    Maybe.
