    Contrary to popular belief, Apple just updated Safari (and iTunes) for PowerPC, which is a good thing.

    Now on to the bad part...it now causes YouTube to stop early for no reason, (the video says 5 minutes left, but the progress bar in the video went a little too ahead of itself, and stopped the video prematurely...this does not happen in tenfourfox...what can I do?) This is only happening with HTML5 videos, not Flash. I switched YouTube back to Flash and all is fine.

    EDIT: I don't know if I can narrow it down just yet, but the HTML5 videos are having the same issues on Intel macs, so I am guessing it is because the HTML5 videos arent ready for public usage just yet.

    I've never had that issue with HTML5 YouTube in Safari on OS X.

    They updated 5.0x for PowerPC. It won't see the current 5.1 that Snow Leopard and Lion run. I can tell you from using it for 2 days now that 5.1 is really fast.
