Internet & Networking Peter Bright has summarised some of the post-fork discussions on the WebKit mailinglists. "Now that Google is going its own way and developing its rendering engine independently of the WebKit project, both sides of the split are starting the work of removing all the things they don't actually need. This is already causing some tensions among WebKit users and Web developers, as it could lead to the removal of technology that they use or technology that is in the process of being standardized. This is leading some to question whether Apple is willing or able to fill in the gaps that Google has left." There's a clear winner and loser here.

As a Web Developer, Safari is a fucking piece of shit that I rarely bother testing on.

* There was a bug in version 5 where it just would just stop downloading images/css/js for no apparent reason. There was never a fix in 2 years.

* HTML 5 Video support on Windows Requires Quicktime.

* Developer Tools are hidden away and cannot be launched by a keyboard shortcut (F12 on every other browser).

* Windows Versions of Safari would render differently than Mac Versions.

I am sure there is some that I have forgotten.
