¶ If this post is hard to read, it's because I'm using the Safari browser to write this on a WordPress blog. ¶ You see, I got a MacBook computer recently. And I've been trying out all the functions of a Mac as I make the change from 20+ years of PC computing. ¶ Now, to be sure, I do like the MacBook. I like it a lot. Oh, sure, there are some differences. But the main thing is, the MacBook is easy to use. Really easy to use. ¶ But it's not perfect. ¶ You see, Apple has their own browser: Safari. ¶ It's a fine browser, to be sure. It's pretty fast. Everything on the Mac is fast. Except for my Microsoft Office 2004 suite. ¶ So, Safari is fast. But it has a bug with WordPress. ¶ Now, if you don't use WordPress, you might be just fine. But WordPress and Safari don't play nice together. ¶ It seems that if you use the Visual Editor for writing ... and I do ... the paragraph formatting screws up. ¶ How bad? Well, you see those little paragraph marks all through this post? That's where I put paragraphs when I wrote this. ¶ And, you see how this has all run together as one big paragraph? That's because of the bug in Safari. ¶ Now, there are reports that the new version of Safari has solved this issue. ¶ But it hasn't. ¶ You see, I'm using Safari 3.0.3 (522.12.1) ... and WordPress 2.2.3. ¶ Yes, that's a beta version. But it's the version that they say has the issue fixed. And it doesn't. ¶ So, excuse how this post looks. But it looks this way because Safari 3 hasn't fixed the bug. ¶ Which means I'll continue using Firefox. Which I like. And won't be using Safari. Which I thought I'd like ... and would if Apple would get off their butts and get it fixed.
UPDATE: Some time in the past year, things got better. They play nice now. Read about it here.
