In the good old days of …..2007, when everyone used Explorer as their browser 🙂 cross browser compatibility wasn’t an issue.

Now Safari is making in roads.

I’ve noticed that Fire Fox is being used a lot unofficially with some of our clients. This is course problems with SharePoint if you customize the css files and master pages. Today IE, Firefox, and Safari handle CSS rendering and the code contained within HTML editor Web Parts in different ways. Firefox can be resolved without too much heavy lifting, but Safari is a different beast and it’s not just look and feel, but also authentication issues and lost cookies, plus missing Office integration features and menus, etc.

Also running Safari on a mac and pc is a different experience, not just with fonts.

Brings back memories of the Netscape and Explorer wars of the 90’s.
