    I stumbled across this
    http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=766
    just now and it says "Also on tap for a December [2004] release is Safari 1.3 for Mac OS X 10.3 "Panther" users", yet when I check my current Safari version (I bought my Mac in Feb 2005 and have all available updates), it says I have version 1.2.4!

    What version do other people have?

    The current latest version is Safari 1.2.4 (v125.12). When Tiger ships, you will probably see Safari 2.0 is my guess.

    So what happened to Safari 1.3? On this very site, there is an article from June last year talking about v1.3 seeds or something.

    I don't know, but Tiger has 2.0(188) or something similar.

    Argh. Yes, I know Tiger has 2.0. I'm just wondering what happened to 1.3.

    my guess would be that they ended up scrapping it for the lower number placement because it probably didnt contain big enough changes for the .3 number change

    That could be, but if you read articles from last year when it was seeded, they say that it could have features that are to be in safari 2.0 for tiger. Maybe 1.3 was never to be released for standard users and was just a test of those new features.

    i would guess that its probably a combination of the two, decided to wait and update it with more in 2.0 and tiger etc....

    sorry i probably should have looked up the articles :eek:

    You're probably right. The more features people know about and can't get, the more they'll want to buy Tiger.
