Safari Goodness Galore

August 1st, 2005

The next version(s) of Safari will include all sorts of updates, like:

  • Improved Javascript performance: It already runs circles around Mozilla’s implementation, so the Gecko team will have to come up with something here
  • Styleable form controls (I wanted this since the days of the Safari Beta. This also means that contenteditable will be supported better!)
  • DOM/JavaScript patches (yeah)
  • Various other stuff (please implement dispatchEvent!)

What’s also a good thing: There’ll soon be committers from outside Apple–this will definitely speed up development. Can’t wait… :)
