Safari 3, like it or not

I had planned to keep using Safari 2 until I got around to installing the Leopard update. However, in a Software Update issued a couple of days ago, Apple updated Safari to version 3 for all 10.4 users.

Ready or not. Or not.

Yes… and I’m killing myself with a navigation menu that is not
working as it should! In Safari - I have gaping space - whereas in FF
I’m not. In Safari, the position of the navigation is correct but in
FF it’s not! ARGH!

I haven’t had any problems with it in 10.5 but I can’t vouch for 10.4

I decided not to update yet. too risky I thought ? Also, I presumed the update would delete safari 2. Is the update likely to mess with the Freeway preview mode ?

10.4.10 works just fine so I like to leave well alone (-:

For me, Safari 2 was working very well. New and improved features in 3
just aren’t apparent – I had to go to the Apple website to get the
gist of what is different.

Since I was “upgraded” I’ve experienced a lot of bugginess – Safari 3
randomly quits, and predictably if I try to access certain
preferences, like RSS. Firefox and Mail have been acting up as well,
requiring restarts to stabilize functionality. Which may not be Safari
3’s fault – maybe the update itself knocked some things off-kilter.
All I know for sure is my internet apps were rock-solid stable prior
to the update, and now they’re a crap-shoot.

A lot of this is just me grousing. I didn’t want to update Safari, and
I’m just not motivated by Leopard – but I will find a way to make it
work and eventually make that transition too. And as the decades pass
by, there will be fewer and fewer neurons to keep alive the memory of
these minor tragedies.

I’ve just made a zip archive of Safari 2. Perhaps that’ll mean I can
have both? Hmm… Dare I try to find out?

I’ve been using Safari 3 solely since it came out as a beta and have
had no issues with its performance whatsoever. With the upgraded
version in the latest OS release of Tiger, still pleased!

If you do, please report back.

It’s likely the updates to Webkit will break Safari 2, though.

Only if you also made a zip archive of the entire WebKit library as
well. The application in the applications folder is the part of the
iceberg you can see.

That was pretty much what I expected. Still, it’ll be interesting to
find out. I might well hold back for a bit though, I have Leopard
running on one Mac already so I don’t have a burning need to get
Safari 3 just yet.

Since my last post I ran the 10.4.11 update… completely forgetting about the Safari update that came with it and not even thinking about it till I read this. In that time I have not seen any negative symptoms. Used Freeway 4.3.2 (yes I know not the latest) without any issues. I’ll report back if anything changes, but so far so good.

Same here, didn’t even realise I was also changing Safari when I updating to 10.4.11.

Personally I think this is tad sneaky, but hey ho.

BTW Shiira wont boot up at all now since the update.
