3.1 is supposed to be super fast.

Does anyone have some good links to web benchmark sites that would demonstrate this speed boost?

defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugUsePieProgressIndicator -bool true

This command no longer works. I much prefer the subtle pie chart style progress indicator than the default progress bar in the URL field. Other than that, everything is working quite nicely. 1Password, Inquisitor, and Safari AdBlock all work as well.

SIMBL doesn't work with Safari 3.1. What's the best way to revert back to Safari 3.0 until SIMBL is updated to work with it?

Running 10.5.2, btw.

Yeah, SafariBlock still works, but I got a warning on first launch that SIMBL wasn't going to work and was being disabled.

Actually, I guess the error is being generated by SIMBL, but the actual problem is that Keywurl doesn't work.

OK, I've installed the update and the OS X security update. All seems well. SafariBlock is still blocking. Safari may be a bit quicker on rendering.

My MacBook hung after installing Safari 3.1... update installed but got a never-ending spinning gear cog thing during shutdown. After about 10 minutes, I hit the power button to do a hard reboot. Seems to be no worse for wear, but hate when that kind of thing happens. No such problem after the subsequent security update.

My Mac Pro, which I didn't update until about 10:30 PM, got both updates at the same time (with no reboot issue like above).

So the new version of Safari supports HTML 5, CSS Web fonts, and CSS animations. What are those exactly, and how do I start using them (experimentally)? Are there any articles about them other than the very dense W3C specs?

Surfin’ Safari

Some of it is dense, but the description for e.g. CSS Web fonts and animations are easy to understand.

In summary: web sites can use embedded fonts that are displayed by your computer which means that they don't have to rely on you having a particular font installed to be able to display their site in the way in which it was designed. That is, they can use fonts other than the "web safe" ones and know that the end user will not need to have them installed.

For the animations, it means that clicking buttons and other CSS objects can lead to an animation (e.g. spinning, sliding, etc).

(Edit: sorry rickey939 - I neglected to refresh the page before posting so didn't realise you had posted an alternative site with easy to understand explanations).

Anyone else cashing on the Acid 3 test? I get to around 60% all looks well and then Safari quits out... Any ideas what could be causing this?

Also, I can not get the Yahoo Games to work... WHAT am I supposed to do at work now?!? HAHAHA

Text Twist on Yahoo! Games

Can anyone load that or figure out why the Acid 3 quits out on me?

EDIT: Removing from library/Internet Plug-Ins an old Adobe SVG plugin fixed my Acid 3 quitting. Now if I could only fix Text Twist. Anyone have any luck?

Safari 3.1 keeps asking for Keychain access every time I run it. If I click "Change All", it sits for 3 minutes until it finally stops beachballing.

I've tried fixing the keychain (in Keychain access) and it found problems, fixed them, but safari still asks every time.

I deleted Safari's plist in the ~\Library\whatever... and that didn't help.

I reinstalled Safari 3.0.4 in the meantime. Thank goodness I do a backup before a major update.

Have you applied any hacks that alter the Safari package? If so, that will invalidate the code signing certificate and this will prevent Safari from using Keychain without permission. Therefore, you will get prompted each time you use it.

No hacks. Nothing. Every tip I have found on the net has not fixed it.

Safari 3.1 is really great so far, except for two annoying bugs:

I have the debug menu enabled (now called Develop), but now it lies betwee the Bookmarks and Window menus.. I was used to click at this location to use the Window menu, but now I find myself invoking the Develop menu all the time by mistake.



The other bug I found is only present on Facebook.. once in a while, I can't click on anything! Safari can "see" the link, as it displays the URL in the status bar, but clicking has no effect: I have to select "Open link in new window". Same thing for the Search feature on the left side of the page. The list from which to chose from appears, but I cannot click on the selection. The bug persists even after I reset Safari and restart it. Then after a few tries, it suddenly works again..

Billions of dollars spent and untold manhours still fail against ICBMs, I wouldn't expect Apple to make it
