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.

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