Apple Apple released the Safari 4 Beta today. Features: Tabs on top. "Top Sites" 'Speed Dial' feature. "Smart" address/search fields. HTML5 Canvas. HTML5 Audio/Video (though no Ogg). Acid 3. CSS Animation/Gradients/Masks/Reflection. CSS Web Fonts. New "Nitro" Javascript engine - "Up to 4 times faster than Firefox 3.1". 'Native' look and native font rendering on Windows Vista/XP. I can think of only one thing: "Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!"

Til then, we have to gather as webmasters and block users of versions of IE that don't comply with web standards, otherwise ten years from now, we'll still use the same old technologies and hacks ;)

If you have a custom theme in Windows, Safari does try hard to fit in, but seems to make mistakes with the height of the titlebar http://bayimg.com/HANCmaabM It handled my theme not to shabbily, all things considered. The weirdest thing is having no menu in Windows.

You can hit Alt to bring up the menu bar, and then make it permanent from the View menu.

I thought IE7 and 8 also has no menus by default. The weird height of the titlebar is likely a side effect of the tab on the top feature.

"Thank you for your proposal, but our tender requires that our site be viewable in Internet Explorer."

Is it a smart idea in these current economic climes to exclude potential (big) clients based merely on ideology and artistic-integrity?

No need to exclude IE, just to exclude those versions of IE that do not comply with standards (IE6 and below in particular).
