About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Safari Tweaks

I’ve now been run­ning OS X 10.3 as my pri­ma­ry OS for a full week, and I’m very hap­py I wait­ed for Pan­ther. The OS is much faster than pre­vi­ous ver­sions, and some of the lit­tle bugs that irked me with Jaguar et al are gone (for instance, not being able to send a file to the trash using Com­mand-Delete if that file’s name was being edit­ed — this is fixed in 10.3, and now match­es the OS 9 behavior).

Now that I’m using OS X full-time, I’m also using Safari as my default brows­er (Apple made some nice adjust­ments to the ver­sion includ­ed with Pan­ther as well, such as the new tab-spe­cif­ic error mes­sages), and I was annoyed enough by a lit­tle dis­play prob­lem on this site to final­ly fix it: the icons for Perma­link and Com­ments always lined up a few pix­els too low on Safari (though they dis­played fine on every oth­er brows­er), and I’ve now fixed the prob­lem using CSS (you may need to reload to see the changes). By set­ting those images to vertical-align: middle; and padding-top: -1px; they final­ly dis­play prop­er­ly in Safari, and in oth­er browsers.

Ahh…

    I don’t know why but I don’t like new browsers. It seems that Safari will be major brows­er of MAC.
