    Is anyone here using a GMail (Google Email) account with Safari on Panther? Navigator handles GMail fine but Safari dosn't. It just sits there and none of the links on the page work when clicked. Every other browser I've tried works. What's up with Safari? I thought it was king of standards compatibility?

    GMail available? Not yet, correct?

    I just logged onto their site, and there is still no option to join. All I did so far was add my e-mail to the "interested party" list...

    It's Very Cool

    I've been very impressed with it so far. Forwarded 8,000+ emails to my gmail account to play around with. Search is incredibly fast and accurate. Their use of labels (kind of like folders, but better) and conversation grouping works great as well.

    It's fairly novel. The real appeal for me is the storage. The Search is just like Google - but the search at Yahoo! is pretty good too. The real unique factor is that if you send an email to 5 people and they all respond, their responses are presented together, on one page, as a 'conversation.'

    Yep - I know. You can use any browser you want though. That list is just the stuff they have tested. The question is - why doesn't Safari work. If it handles web standards where is it having a problem? Every other browser I've tried works fine.

    Safari also had problems ploadign content via Yahoo!
