Safari Browser Compatibility

Traditionally I test all web sites I design with Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. Recently a customer pointed out that an image on her website did not display correctly (it looked fine in IE and FF). I downloaded Safari for Windows XP
to view her web site. I had to alter the CSS to make her web site compatible for Safari.

Pros and Cons of the Safari Browser

Here’s one persons experience after using the Safari browser for some time.

My Recommendation

When designing web sites always validate the xhtml and css first before checking them in different browers. This will eliminate 99% of the errors. Finally check your web site in Safari, Internet Explorer and Firefox then adjust the CSS accordingly to correct display errors.
