Pros-
- Caching issue resolved
- No more squeaking on secure sites
- Seems faster

Cons-
- Some text appears "flattened"

Anybody else have other experiences?

For some reason my online banking no longer works. What's up w/ that?

Interesting. Were you having to change Safari's user-agent ID via the debug menu before to get it to work?

No. It didn't work at first, but it started to with one of the builds (in the 60's I think). But now it doesn't work at all.

Oddly enough, my online banking just started to work! It has always been hit or miss on the Mac--not just in Safari, IE would crash on by bank's site too. It was so bad I was using Mozilla in VPC to do my banking. It seems to be working great now.

Safari doesn't accept any key strokes any more. I cannot enter any data in the URL and Google fields. Also not into any field within a web page.

This is the only application behaving like this.

That's a weird one. Have you tried resetting it?

Are you sure that the caching bug has been fixed? There's a database website that I know of that does searches via CGI scripts, and whenever I enter a new entry, Safari brings back the results of the old search. It's really aggravating.

It could be resolved for regular HTML pages, but I don't think it's resolved in all cases.

I haven't tried it yet on any cgi based sites. Thanks for pointing that out.

It's definitely fixed on MR, which makes me happy. ;)

Safari does not work if Saft is installed. But once it is deleted it works fine. The first time around, I did an upgrade, and since Safari stopped working, I gave up and did a clean install. I installed saft and Safari stopped working.. I deleted it and was fine again...

So make sure you did not install any 3rd party apps for Safari.

Hopefully they update it soon to be compatible with Safari 1.1. That's a great little hack.

I noticed this too, but I think I will get used to it soon.

It's not like none of the pundits here and any other Mac sites wouldn't have suggested to make a clean install. I heared it but didn't follow their advice.

So I made a clean install on my second disk and everything is just fine. And now Panther rocks on my good old PM G4 400. Fantastic.

So why haven't they upgraded Safari for Jaguar...

As OS X users, the majority of us do upgrade to the next big decimal... But if you take each Windows update (98, 2000, XP) they still update IE for all their systems.

So Apple, Update Safari for the other 10.x users :p THANK YOU :eek:

Upgraded first. To many problems. So I did an erase and clean install. Now my dp 1.25 goes to sleep, but will not recognize my keyboard or mouse on wake up. So, it's like it is frozen. Unpluging and plugiing back in does not help. Any sugestions?
