Weblog:   What Happened to my Safari?

I don't use Safari at all anymore except for quick checks for web functionality on pages I'm writing.

Safari sucks on any web pages with JavaScript. Whether that's JavaScript's fault or Safaris, I don't know, but Firefox works fine on those pages.

Safari is also a giant memory hog. I've had many instances of it taking up ALL the available memory on my PowerBook - over 400mb in some cases.

    The talk in many Mac forums backs up your statement about JavaScript. Also, I noticed that when I was on the Roxio pages yesterday researching Toast 7, Safari had a real hard time parsing their pages. They have a .jhtml extension - Java within HTML I think. Although I'm not sure I'd blame Safari for that...

      That's odd... I just blazed through the Roxio site - Tiger, Safari 2.0. No page took longer than around 2 sconds to load completely.

      Not seen *any* problems in general with Safari - just keeps getting better and better....
