Safari 1.0 Rushed?
A MacUser.co.uk article on Web Developers and Safari notes a few ongoing issues with Apple's browser.
Of particular note is Safari's "over-ambitious caching" -- which may inadvertantly display pages with inconsistent results. One developer notes:
- It's one thing to cache pages, but when it uses old versions of buttons and scripts it's anyone's guess what the results will be for users.
MacUser.co.uk also reveals that Apple may have rushed Safari to a 1.0 released after Microsoft's announcement that Internet Explorer would no longer be developed for the Macintosh:
- Even Apple insiders have admitted privately that Safari was too buggy for it to have been given a finished release status
