I noticed after going back to Safari after a while and browsing Flickr, that people looked weird and dead and in general the picture quality was extremely poor. So I took comparison screengrabs between Safari and Opera: ^^^^Safari, looks like total crap. ^^^^Opera, looks infinitely more alive. P.S. you should drag and drop to browser and open with preview to really compare, or better yet open this link in both browsers: https://www.flickr.com/photos/zaramovane/19110815721/ EDIT: I have found out that Safari uses bilinear interpolation for resampling images during scaling. What was Apple thinking?????????
