Safari 3.1 released – congratulations are in order
Peter pointed out in an article on CSS3.Info that Safari 3.1 had been released both as a standalone install or automatic software update for OSX [curses software update check been set to weekly rather than daily]; for this reason, until I read his article I had no idea they’d released it so early.
It’s a nice surprise to see what CSS/SVG support they’ve implemented:-
- complete CSS3 selector support - wahey, we can now start thinking about using nth-child’s, :target’s more seriously now.
- CSS3 Web Fonts – stop thinking Arial, Tahoma, Georgia… start thinking completely custom fonts.
- SVG’s in <img> elements and CSS bg images – more semantically correct than using <embed> (has never been a W3C recommendation (has become more of a defacto property) and doesn’t support nested alt content) and <object> for image instances.
We know Webkit has been implementing some cool features of HTML5 already (even though it’s still a WD):-
- Client-side database storage – really exciting to see this implemented already.
- <video> and <audio> element support
All in all, a nice little update I’m sure you’ll agree.
