Previous versions of Prototype could trigger bugs in Safari’s regular expression engine when updating elements with HTML containing <script> tags or when using JSON functionality with built-in security checks. These regular expression engine bugs affect Safari versions 1.3 through 2.0.4, but not Safari 3 beta or the WebKit nightlies. We’ve managed to code around them to prevent either browser crashing while maintaining the full API, keeping the performance top-notch and assuring backwards-compatibility.
