I love Camino,

but one problem that continually bites me in the butt is that Camino does a pretty poor job of remembering multiple login credentials at a particular site or domain. When I’m working on the back end of one of my blogs or with the interface of my webhosts, this is a constant aggravation. I’m pretty much forced to use Firefox again. I guess that’s not so bad though.

Safari for Windows

has been announced and the Safari 3 Public Beta is now available for Windows and Mac. Is this really interesting for anything other than the fact that AJAX through Safari is the iPhone API? Is Safari for Windows anything more than the Windows Dev environment for iPhone developers?

Update: Since getting home I’ve been playing around with Safari 3 on my Macbook, and it’s freaking FAST. Quite impressive. And it doesn’t seem to croak when faced with Flash anymore.

Firefox just crashed

for the last time. I’m moving back to Camino.

Go get it!

Firefox 2 was released last night.

I’ve been trying out

the new version of Firefox that was released the other day, and I note with displeasure that the close icon is still not on the tab you want to close itself, but over on the right-hand side. Otherwise it’s fine, though I’m not likely to move from Safari, which I switched to a few months ago.

Four years ago,

Zeldman published his seminal article To Hell With Bad Browsers on A List Apart. Yesterday, Anil Dash wrote a nice tribute to the article and its effects on the web world.

Which Browser?

Tim Bray has been publishing his Browser Market Share for some time now – and from here on out the information may be accessed at this stable location.

Question for readers:

I had a report yesterday from a reader that this site wasn’t rendering properly in his browser, that is to say in IE6. I am stuck with IE5.5 at work and everything’s OK, and at home in Firefox and Safari everything works well.

If you could confirm for me if everything looks OK, or let me know if text gets cut off on the left or right in your setup I would very much appreciate it. Let me know what you’re using!

Kottke has written more

on a continuing theme of his (and others as well) for the past little while: The Google Browser. Worth a read, definitely.

From the Guardian last week:

The second browser war, by Ben Hammersley.

“…why did Microsoft stop developing Internet Explorer? Why would a company so vocal about innovation cease work on perhaps the most used application in the world, and for nearly three years? The answer is not definitive, but the prevailing thinking points to the third aspect of the browser war: it is the beginning of an even larger, if deeply curious, battle for the domination of the entire computer industry.”

I remain suspicious about the possibility of web apps to become the thin client or network computer heralded in years past, but it’s clear there’s something going on, and MS really does look like it’s being forced to hedge its bets a bit more than it has done in the past couple of years.
