Safari + Search = Houston, We Have Rendering Uh-Oh!

Pea and I had some fun with this one and I'm not sure if anyone else noticed this or not, but safari acts really fucking retardedly in rendering the default #SimpleSearch form and it's FOLLOWING radio buttons. I think I've tried just about every simple measure to put these in their place, yet safari is asking for a kick in the nuts and rendering the radios BEFORE the form... If that's not strange enough for you, just resize the form and you'll get them placed both before AND after the field. I don't think I really want to waste my time absolutely positioning each and every element there so any chance you can do like the adv search and slap it into a nice 2 row table? Mark this affects even the default Vanilla theme so containing these elements might be a good option. This is also the latest safari.

    To illustrate, some screenshots. They go from wide browser window to narrower each time.

  • Also, another Safari incident reported in the Forum Preferences. The radio buttons don't register through Ajax when you click them.

    Nothing happens when I click those.
  • Should these be bug reports?

    nah, it's not that, it's the fact that safari renders about as good as IE in some cases. Which in this case we've learned is completely back-assward.
  • I like safari. I think the only real problems is has are with form redering. If you don't like it, don't use it. Or, as it is now open source, change it as you will.
  • I also like safari. I find it actually faster than Firefox. rendering AND key response. And it's not because i have a slow computer (g5 2.5Ghz with ..plenty of ram).

    That said, Safari is mostly standards compliant and getting better. There is strict and quirks mode. Quirks mode is when it tries to do "best judgement renders" of pages. I.E. It tries to render pages that are written for I.E. if it's written standards compliant, almost always, Safari will render properly.

    In the case of bugs for standard compliant pages, file them. David Hyatt and his team seem like they know what they are doing and just going through and do in fact fix bugs that are filed.
