    It looks as though I may have found a bug with Safari. When trying to click the link in FireFox it works just fine and I see both links with the file extensions, however in Safari it just downloads one file with no file extension and it is not executable.

    It's not opening as an executable. As I said before, there's no file extension associated with the file when I download it so I can't open it. If you know of a way then please let me know.

    I just got done watching the Keynote address and thought I would download Safari 3 Beta for Windows to give it a shot. So far I'm very impressed. Everything seems to be rendering just fine and the drop down menus are also working without a problem. I'm posting this reply using Safari 3 Beta for Windows Vista. I have noticed that it is fast when loading pages.

    I don't see an overly large problem with how Safari looks though I will add that if a user wishes to change the look to match his/her current theme they should be able to.

    I am also of the opinion that Opera is the best browser (by it's own) so far. But at the end, everything that cuts off from Internet Explorer's market share is certainly most welcomed.
    I agree that Opera 9 is the best browser in terms of its ratio of overall features compared to its memory footprint, but I just don't like its default setup, especially on Mac OS X. But, like Firefox, it's very easy to fix up, making it look very nice and attractive.

    Yep, wonderful.

    and replace it with this line:
    PHP Code:
    if (strpos($useragent'applewebkit') !== false
    Thanks. Just upgraded my forums to VB 3.6.7 P1 and then did this patch. Now I have drop-down menus

    btw just upgraded to Safari for Windows 3.0.2 and noted the java(script) problem fixed. But now it appears to have a problem with secure pages, i.e. secure > non-secure throws up a "This page cannot be displayed ..." error! Much improved text rendering though with bold a little soft focus on my LCD monitor.

    Personally, I think we're all being a little too critical of something that is a beta. I can imagine the howls from the vBulletin folks if they published a public beta and then had to reply to criticisms of it.

    Again personally, if Apple sort out the javascript bug, Safari for Windows will be my browser of choice because it's so much faster than anything else including MSIE, Firefox and Opera!

    AVG. (Is it the free edition? ).
    vBulletin Development Blog. Which appears in another shot. I don't know if this means the development server of vBulletin Blog, or that you guys are planning to use the upcoming Blog add-on to publish a blog about vBulletin Development? I really hope it's the latter.
    Photoshop CS3 too (the blue 'Ps' logo just before the Firefox icon)

    You guys even test in a WebTV viewer/browser? I didn't know that was still around... and out, Safari definitely clashes with that lineup.
