Generally I test web applications on Firefox (Windows, Linux) and IE (Windows). On (rare) occasion, I have tested on Opera, but … it is hard to care about Opera. My one regret is that up until now I have not been able to test with Safari. Personally, I would like to know the things I create will work on the Macintosh, but this is not a priority in my work-time (hence acquiring a Macintosh is hard to justify).
Yesterday I saw the announcement for the Safari 3 Public Beta, and there is a Windows version! Very cool. Grabbed the Windows version and ran a few examples through Safari, and … some did not work, and I cannot easily tell why. Poked around the Apple developer site a bit, but lacking something like Firebug, I probably will not take the time needed to puzzle out what is going wrong.
Hopefully the developer tools for Safari on Windows will eventually appear, and I can take another crack later.
Update: A note has appeared on Enabling the debug menu on Safari for Windows. Enough of a hint to find why the parameters example did not work (that and <html debug=”true”> does something useful with Firebug Lite). Fixed.
