    Hello, I have a few questions...

    1) Is there any way to enable that debug menu in safari 4.1.3?

    2) For some reason, safari doesn't update the google pages. However, Firefox does though. Look at the pics...

    Thanks...

    PS- the first one is safari, the second is firefox

    Because it's a different browser with a different rendering engine. Pages have looked different in different browsers since the first days of the net.

    If you want something that loads like FF then use FF. It makes no sense to use Safari and expect FF rendering.

    Ok, but when safari is opened on, say lion, why do pages load the same as Firefox? Is it because of the newer webkit version in safari 5? That screenshot is taken from safari 4. Should it make that much of a difference? Safari 4 for Tiger came out last year, so it isn't that old. Hmmmmmmmm...

    Safari 4 came out in 2008 not last year. Newer webkit versions tend to work more like mozilla but still load some sites differently.

    You're using a 6.5 year old OS combined with a 3.5 year old browser. I only use Camino and Omniweb. Both are still developed and load most everything fine.

    Err Tiger came out in April 2005. That makes it over 6 years old (Nearly 7 in fact).

    Yes exactly. Safari 4 was last updated in 2010 but it's all still based around the original 4 build from June 2008.

    I guess people just think what they think and have no interest in the actual facts.
