10.2.8 Safari: what's different? - Mac Applications & Software

I haven't found any obvious changes yet. I was hoping for maybe a button to stop blinking ads, but if it's there, I can't find it. Not that I'm complaining. -- Tad Davis rr.com http://taddavis.blogspot.com...

    Not dealing with any Bluetooh devices yet until I return from my
    sister's wedding and purchase the new wireless keyboard and mouse from
    Apple.

    Pretty large file upgrade with no apparent results as of yet.

    Safari still says it's version 1.0, and I don't see any difference at
    all, The plugin detection for disneyworld.com still can't tell that
    quicktime and adobe reader are installed, have to use IE to get the
    enhanced broadband content.

    It's still version 1.0 all right, but the build is now listed as 85.5
    instead of 85. I haven't yet noticed any difference, either, though.

    I believe I saw a report that the current Panther build has Safari 1.1; but
    no discussion of what's changed.

    I thought I'd seen some rumor site yesterday with at least a speculation on
    specific changes in the 85.5 Safari that comes with 10.2.8... but I can't
    find it now.

    At the UI level. 1.0v85.5 seemed to be a bit snappier with page load
    and general functions, although the Bookmark List is still slow to
    respond. There's also less HD read/writes/spinning ball. And it hasn't
    crashed yet. Seemed to be primarily behind the scene performance fixes.

    As for compatibility, I have not noted any changes there.

    Have you tried Pith Helmet? It's a plug-in for Safari that kills banner
    ads, including those pesky blinking ones. I've been using it for a
    couple months now and it works GREAT!

    In followup to my last reply... I should mention that I have no idea if
    Pith Helmet works with the new version of Safari, and their website
    makes no mention of it.

    Works fine as far as I can tell, although they did release an update
    today.

    No button, but I can offer you a user stylesheet that will cause most of
    those blinking (and other) ads to go away ... see MacOSXHints.com (a
    great site, btw) for more about this. Just do a search for "stylesheet"
    if you can't find it.

    It turned out that they spelt it "Style sheet" in your article.
