Safari 3 beta and iChat don't seem to get along very well...

    So, I installed Safari 3 (Overall, it's brilliant!), but it seems to have screwed up iChat something rotten....

    Some problems:
    • When you send a message, nothing appears until you press any key... EDIT: This only seems to happen with longer messages.... EDIT x2: Seems to occur when the input box has to expand for a second line of text, so enlarging the window allows you to use more characters EDIT x3: If you don't press a key, and the other contact sends a message, yours goes through. Moving the mouse also sends the message. EDIT x4: (I and a contact are running tests on this, sorry for all the edits ;P) If the system does ANYTHING the message sends, including using your apple remote.
    • You type a message and send it, but the thought bubble stays there for like a minute before the message sends
    • Program still runs, but you cannot receive or send any messages, meaning you need to close and reopen iChat...

    These aren't just for me, another iChat/Safari 3 user is having the same problem.

    Incidentally, I'm using a 1.83Ghz Core Duo Macbook with 512Mb of Ram.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Running 2.0Ghz CD Blackbook with 2Gb RAM.... Ichat runs a bit slower... after entering text and sending... it takes a lil longer than usual for text to show up in the box. Aside from that, its seems stable.

    I noticed the same lag on my outgoing messages in iChat on my MacBook CD 2.0 with 1 GB of RAM. I used the included uninstaller package to go back to Safari 2.

    Incidentally, I found out elsewhere that Netscape Navigator 9 is in beta, and unlike Netscape 8, it's cross-platform. I'm using it now, and it's a welcome change for the moment. I especially like that the search box allows me to choose my search engine, and I can actually remove the search box if I want it gone. (I know this can be done via third-party addons in Safari, but I prefer something that's extensible right off the bat.) I'm making it my default browser for the time being.

    Same Problem

    My problem is that I type a message and it will take a whole 30 seconds to send, even if the msg is one character long.

    I downloaded Safari 3 as soon as it was available, and I found, for mac at least, it works really well... BUT, I too have this problem. When I try to send something, it'll take over 10 sec to actually display what was sent... then, today I had the same problem for INCOMING IMs... which was really annoying. I hope Apple fixes this ASAP.
