    Of course it's not a huge problem because Safari seems to work fine with the apple store, but, ironically, according to apple, store.apple.com doesn't support the use of safari on their site.

    From the Apple store:

    i thought that safari was considered to be some form of netscape, or something :confused:

    I think safari disguises itself as Netscape when it has to. This way it can still load sites that are very picky about the browser used, for example, online banking services. As far as I know, Safari doesn't use any code directly from the Mozilla browser, which is what Netscape is based on.

    Safari uses the KHTML rendering engine from KDE's Konqueror browser/file manager. There's no mozilla in there that I know of but I don't know everything.
