    I installed Safari earlier today and have had no problems with it. The Windows version of Safari is rendering my site the exact same way as OS/X Safari, so this is a good thing from a testing standpoint.

    What is irritating me, however is that it is making all my text look more bold than it should. Normal text looks bold and bold text looks super bold. I wish I could figure out how to make Safari render fonts the same way all other browsers do.

    Oh and before people say something, yes my site validates to W3C's HTML4.01 Strict and CSS2 specifications. It also renders nearly identically in: MSIE 5.5, 6.0, 7.0; Firefox 1.5, 2.0; and Opera 8.5, 9. The only significant difference I've found with Safari is the stupid font bolding issue.

    Hi Dan, how do you actually test against the engines (do you mean through the browsers)?

    I've just installed safari without quicktime & it was horribly slow to load some websites (including mine) & makes all websites I visited have bold font even though under the appearance options tab it says it is regular font. Also all the graphics are displayed somewhat fuzzy, & there seems to be no way to change settings.

    Well, as someone said, let's not panic :D it is just a beta after all. I won't uninstall it but I certainly won't be using it for regular surfing just yet :rolleyes:

    Did you find it slower to load your website than the other browsers? My website is w3c html & css validated but it took a horribly long time to load :(

    My site loads extremely fast on all browsers as I pay a great deal of attention to this detail. With that said the best I could tell, Safari loaded faster than any of my other browsers. It is absolutely faster than MSIE. I think the transmission time of files from the server was the only cause of loading lag. Overall I'm impressed with Safari. I just don't like the way it renders fonts. Maybe if everyone reports the font thickness issue as a bug Apple will change this behavior.

    Posting on Safari on Windows right now. Yes the only issue is the bolder fonts.
    There are some features that are disabled or not working at all, but it is Beta.

    All the websites I visits render fast, DP renders fast. I just discover that in Safari some features of VBulletin are on different locations.

    I use a Mac and I love Safari. The only problem I have with it is that every so often it will garble the submission page in some directories. I solve that by switching briefly to IE for Mac, which does not garble those same pages. But then I return immediately to the far superior Safari browser.

    Yes, I mean through the browsers. IE 6, IE 7, Firefox. 1.5, Firefox 2, Opera 9, Konqueror 3 and Safari 2 (or 3 Beta if on Windows to simulate Safari 2 on OS X) are the main ones I'd test in.

    As far as the text, try turning off Clear-type.

    I have a post on SitePoint (look for the featured thread "Safari on Windows" on the forum index) on page 2 of the thread I mentioned earlier in this sentence that could shed some light on the matter for others. :)

    Legal reasons. Though I really can't go into too great of details, since I'm not particularly knowledgeable on that particular subject (computer law).

    About my comment on VBulletin, I just found a patch from one of the programmers in VBulletin.com, I applied it in my forum and works fine now.

    I downloaded it, but switched back to FireFox because the text was hard to read and it seemed slower.

    I think you should have stated it this way:

    Because it is a betaaaaaaa

    Not that anyone would pay attention. At least it would have been more satisfying to post. :p
