We have had two big pieces of news from the big guys, Google and Yahoo! that have placed Safari on the backburner once more.
Firstly, the new Yahoo! homepage preview had people calling out: “Safari is an “A level” browser at Yahoo! yet you can’t view the new homepage in it yet?”
Secondly, the Google Web Toolkit that people are talking a lot about doesn’t support Safari. Some are calling out to get support added there.
If you just look at the market share stats you see a small number for Safari, but a large percent of the Ajax developers seem to be walking around with an Apple in their backpack.
So, how important is it for people to support Safari?
It takes time to add support to a new browser, and you can see how you may want to get something out before full support is available.
Do you care?
