    Link: WebKit nightly builds now offer Gmail rich text
    Description:: Anthony Baker emails to tell me that the new nightly builds of WebKit (which will be used for Safari 3.0) have fixed the WYSIWYG form editing problem that bedevils users of current Safari versions. This means, he says, that “you can now hit Gmail and get the same kinds of rich-text editing capability provided to IE, FF and other browsers. You can also access Google Docs.” And it's true.

    Currently this is the only drawback of Safari + Google Hosted.

    I'm so glad it's being sorted, and I'm tempted to start using webkit. Just because I can't stand other browsers :rolleyes:

    edit: do you need Xcode tools installed to run it?

    That annoys me to no end as well. I have installed safaristand to work around this problem, but safaristand does not work with webkit nightly builds. So I'm stuck!

    Safari 3 supports gmail rich text without any plugins

    Verison 3 of Safari (very stable beta is available for download from apple's website) fully supports gmail rich text editing.

    I installed it and did not need any plugins for it to work properly.
