Safari 'inline background' bug fixed!

So I noticed referral traffic from Surfin' Safari this morning and it turns out to be a post by David saying that the Safari bug that is so painfully visible on my site has been fixed (although not available for download just yet).

Dave and his team have been doing a great job on Safari. It's cool to watch the progress their making. And especially cool that he took the time to mention me specifically, even though the post of mine he discovered that talks about the bug is just something I said in passing while praising Opera 7. How embarrassing.

He goes on to say that the 'nicetitle' thing I'm trying out on my site now also works in current builds. That's cool too.

I posted a comment there expressing my thanks and I also asked when Safari would be available for Windows. I said this with a straight face. Quicktime is available for Windows, so why not Safari too?

In the latest available Safari build your 'a class=extlinks' declaration still obscures the link text. You know this probably. Huge p-i-t-a to browse your site with external links obscured. Hiliting the text lets me see what is underneath.

I have to mention, Safari is so good that I have been using it 99.95% of the time -- even while I develop new sites. I only drop into other browsers to check work and maybe to login to a site Safari has trouble with still.

Have I thanked you for the MT plug-ins? I think so but another hearty thanks is in order. Brad, watch out... if you see a 6'2" bald man coming at you it will only be for a big hug. That's how much I like your plug-ins.

Yes, thanks for the sanitize (and macro, while I'm at it) plugin. I bet my boss dinner he couldn't get to my server logs. This was always hanging over me. Now (even with all the hassle of upgrading), I can rest at ease.

Brad maybe you've noticed Safari's still make troubles with your links, those links who uses an images displaying that it's an external link.

If you guys would read Dave's post (which I've linked), you'll see that it has been fixed, but only in the version they're developing right now. The current release still has the bug. The next release will include this fix. I thought I made this point clear by saying "although not available for download just yet". I guess I wasn't clear enough?

It's not exactly Safari for Windows, but a port of KHTML for win32 is well on the way after Apple announced its support for it.
