Unlike Firefox or Opera, Safari for Windows does not offer a wide range of debugging tools and they are fairly well hidden. To enable the Safari Debug menu option, you need to find your Preferences.plist file located in %APPDATA%\Apple Computer\Safari (%APPDATA is typically C:\Documents and Settings\your login name\Application Data\).
Open the file and add the following lines somewhere within the <dict> section:
I’ve been through a lot of my code and, with the exception of a single regular expression, Safari’s been very well behaved.
Would I switch from Firefox, IE, or Opera? Not a chance – and I doubt many people will. The interface is likely to confuse many Windows, Gnome, and KDE users and the browser doesn’t feel integrated with the OS.
However, I finally have a chance to prove my sites work on all platforms without resorting to slow online screen shot generators or humbly begging Mac users for their help!
