Hopefully Safari becomes usable with these new updates. There are quite a few sites that I just can't view. Surprisingly, I use Netscape for most of my web browsing needs.

Wish they'd add some new features to Safari - like some of the stuff Firefox has, for example per site pop up blocking and cookies.

Name them. I've never seen a single site that I "just can't view." That's poppycock.

When I use Safari 1.2.3 at school, I can view every page that I try to access. Safari 2.0 Update 1 will be even better when I get my Powerbook. I like Safari a lot. My current favorite browser.

Try http://www.edmunds.com

The page will come up fine initially. Now, select the "New Cars" tab (or any other tab for that matter) and you will get the top portion of the page, but nothing eles. You are forced to reload the page manually everytime you navigate to a new page. Very annoying.

I've noticed Safari crashes out randomly now and then, hopefully this will improve stability.
yeah..sometimes i'll just make a new tab and then bam!! the beachball..

one thing that REALLY annoys me about safari is it's inability to force-refresh. sometimes i visit a page which I KNOW has changed (normally because i've just changed it myself..) and safari will load the same thing. Apple + refresh..nothing..empty cache..nothing..

is it really that hard to do? works fine in firefox..

I use Safari exclusively. Do have some sites where it won't work, so I just just don't visit. I do hope that they fix stability issues. It's frustrating when Safari just up and quits.

This sort of problem with sites like Edmunds is usually associated with the pop-up blocker since the pages use popups to navigate. Try turning off the blocker when you visit Edmunds or when you experience this problem.

I've been using Safari for 3 years now and love it. Haven't had any major problems. 2.0 is a great improvement on an awesome product. It sucks sitting here at work using MSIE on a PC and getting bombarded with pop ups & pop unders, and run time errors, and little red x's instead of pics, etc, etc...

Edmunds still works the way I described earlier with the pop-up blocker on or off. That was one of the first things that I tried when I ran into this problem.

I just hope that the next revision clears up the issues that I have. Until then, I will stick with Netscape.

That is what I figured. I am running Safari 2.0 (412.2).

Can you try clicking on one of the tabs and see if the page fully renders? I want to see if the incompatibility surfaces in the transition to Safari 2.0.

Thanks,
Hickman

Still too slow

Since I installed Tiger (I got it early), I was using Safari exclusively until about 3 weeks ago. Frankly, it's too slow and some sites (I never made a note of them) don't display properly. It's Camino or Firefox for me...

works perfectly for me. takes 2 seconds to display each page. but they are perfect. safari 2.0 (412.2).

in general no problems with safari, no crashes, no page that i can't see yet.

Does the site not work properly in Safari, or does it just pop
up with a message saying that you must use Windows? If it's
the latter, go to Terminal and type:

defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

then restart Safari. You will now have an additional menu
which you can use to pretend that you're running IE for
Windows, which will hopefully let you into the site

Me want cookie manager! Me want cookie manager! OmniWeb has a great one, letting you accept cookies from a site for the duration of the session, which is perfect for using a site that depends on them without leaving their tracking information on your system. I'd love to see that in Safari.
