  • Known incompatibilities between open-source WebKit and Safari

    v11 v12  
    11Safari 2.0.x for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or a 10.4.x update should work correctly with locally-built versions of WebKit in nearly all ways. Ideally there would be no incompatibilities at all, but occasionally it is necessary to introduce an incompatibility so that WebKit can evolve without amassing globs of special-case backwards-compatibility code that will be unneeded in released versions of WebKit.

    3 This page is intended to list all of the deliberate incompatibilities between using Safari 2.0.x in Tiger and a locally-built version of WebKit. It might also mention incompatibilities between the latest Safari 3 Beta (Tiger or Windows) and the latest WebKit.  If you know of any other incompatibilities, then either this page needs updating or (more likely) they are unintentional bugs. Please use http://bugs.webkit.org/ to report such bugs.

    9 Recent changes to the icon database have moved it towards a fully asynchronous model where all access to the disk occurs on a background thread.  It was necessary to make use of notifications to alert the browser that an icon has been received from network or the disk.  Safari 2.0.4 (Tiger) and the current Safari 3.0.3 Beta (Tiger and Windows) do not listen for all of these notifications and therefore site icons will seem to work poorly in Bookmarks, History, and the location field.
