Apple Safari 3 PC Version Beta 3

I am so happy today! Last night I found out Safari 3 was released for Public Beta for both Mac and PC.

Download Link : http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en) AppleWebKit/522.11.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Safari/522.11.3

Finally, after years of waiting, I am able to test my work and products on Safari and by all accounts what you see on PC is what you'll see on a Mac.

The browser is XP and Vista compatible and uses the familiar Apple chrome interface. The browsing (although slow at first) was suprisingly snappy and I havent encountered any serious issues yet.

The only issue that kind of bugs me is that it is not compatible with a duel dual ( Thanks M. Katz ;-) ) monitor shared desktop environment. You can drag it to your other monitor but if you go full screen, it disapears completely and you have to close the browser. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update.

The best feature is how text on a page looks. Its beautiful. Beats the pants of Mozilla and IE and is similar (but nicer) than Operas text rendering. Not sure I like the extra bold though. Check out this post for more insight and some good points : Font smoothing, anti-aliasing, and sub-pixel rendering

I can finally get CF_FileManager, CFForumExpress, Teamwork CMS, UDI and all our other products fully Safari compatible.

Thank you Apple!!

Apple G4 Arrived Today...

After 15 years I have finally given in and purchased an Apple G4. I really need to get the thumb out and make my apps truely cross-platform so this morning handed the cash over and took delivery of my first Apple computer.

I am actually looking forward to re-writing CF_FileManager and getting it truely cross-platform and especially running in Safari. Same goes for all my Custom Tags and Applications on CFTagStore.com

Test Web Apps on Safari using Windows

Apple’s WebKit (the rendering component powering the Safari web browser) has been ported to Windows, complete with a browser called Swift.

We dont have a Mac with OSX in the office and there are many times I would like to test my Web Apps on Safari so I was delighted to find this little golden nugget:

Downloading and installing now and I'll update with my experiences....

ColdFusion Multiple File Upload On Mac OSX using Safari

Thanks Karl!!

Karl (a good friend and decent ColdFusioneer) took the trouble to test the Flash Upload widget on Mac OSX using Safari and it worked seamlessly!

We are getting close. Now all we need is Flash 8 to be released for Linux and we may have achieved our goal.
