I use `<input type="date">` and it works fine to bring up a date picker in Chrome and Firefox. However, it behaves as a normal textbox in Safari.

Hi I have "performed" my frst venture into html5 video using the [URL="http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody"]video for everyone[/URL] and it works well in IE, Opera, Saf, Chrome, FF. I have one small question - Safari (at least on my windows laptop) seems to want to download the whole darn video before it shows the first frame, or the buttons work - all the others stream it in the way I was expecting. Has anyone got any ideas why - or more important how I get it to work more effectively! Here's the code [code]<video width="320" height="240" controls> <!-- MP4 must be first for …

Hi Everyone My website has a simple embedded mp3 player (start, pause, stop) which works fine in IE but I now realise it doesn't work in all the other browsers and that ActiveX is only for IE (it was a pain having to instruct visitors to allow ActiveX to run anyway). Is there a simple piece of code to use to embed an mp3 player (buttons etc) that works in IE, Firefox & Safari (and hopefully other browsers). I have the software to change the format of the audio if needs be. Thanks

Maybe this is on the site already, but I'm going to ask directly. How do you guys/gals test your scripts or websites on all browsers for compatibilty. I'm new to this and would like to know. For the most part I've found that Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera do alright. But Internet Explorer is a pain in my neck sometimes. How do you test your code for older IE browsers?

Thought the days of having to use a particualr web browser client in order to use a specific site were over? Think again if this conversation between a user and eBay support is anything to go by. ![dweb-ebay](/attachments/small/0/dweb-ebay.jpg "align-right") As a journalist who has spent the largest part of the last 20 years online, not a great deal makes me sit up and my jaw drop with disbelief anymore. However, when a chap called Mike Hall copied me in on a support conversation he had with eBay, I have to admit I was rather in danger of spitting my coffee …

Hi there I am working on a template for a new website and the homepage looks fine in every browser except IE (all versions).

I am having some issues with tables in firefox vs. safari. For some reason, witch i have not run into before, Mozzilla is rendering my tables hight to be much larger then safari. This problem is a concern because i am creating a visual layout (via imbedded images) in witch i am sitting my table over. In Mozzilla they are cutting off the bottom portion of my tables where as n safari they fit nicely. Do my tables need to be browser specific or am i miss writing my CSS to create this problem.

Although Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome browsers get a lot of attention in the media, Apple's Safari browser is not too shabby in comparison. The one thing it unfortunately lacks is robust security. Given that so much computer activity revolves around the browser these days, security is the last place you'd want to see sub-standard features. InfoWorld's Roger Grimes took and [URL="http://www.infoworld.com/article/09/01/30/04TC-safari-security_1.html"]in-depth look at Safari[/URL] and says that even though it has strong pop-up blocking and anti-phishing tools, it's rife with numerous security flaws. "[S]ecurity is not Safari's strong point. Unfortunately, 26 separate vulnerabilities have been announced since March 2008, …

Good day, I've run into a problem with list items displayed inline (i.e., horizontally) using Safari for Windows. If you [URL="http://dwlamb.com/cssproblem/loggedin.html"]follow this link, you'll find an uploaded static version of the problem[/URL]. Viewing it in IE7-8 and Firefox (Windows & Linux), the page yields as it should. The 4 menu items across the top are similar to the 4 items down the left side. However, in Safari the items displayed inline lose the padding. Debugging this, I have narrowed it down that adding display:inline triggers the loss of the style. There are two sections of my CSS that govern these …

With Internet Explorer 9 being acclaimed as the fastest ever browser client from Microsoft, DaniWeb decided to put it to the test against Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari and see just how quick it really is in a real world test of web browsing speed. You can read our [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/reviews/review318661.html"]review of the Internet Explorer 9 Beta here[/URL].

The background to this is that I have two server-side scripts: * upload.cgi: accepts a file upload * monitor.cgi: reports the size of the file upload as the file upload progresses. There is a form handler: onSubmit="doProgress();" for the upload form that points to upload.cgi. This does the asynchronous thing with monitor.cgi as the file uploads, and prints out the response from monitor.cgi. This is the javascript: [CODE]var req=null; var url='/cgi-bin/monitor.cgi'; var HTTPMethod='GET'; function doProgress() { window.setTimeout( sendRequest, 100 ); return true; } function sendRequest() { if(req==null) { req=initialiseXMLHTTPRequest(); } req.open(HTTPMethod,url,true); req.setRequestHeader('content-type', 'text/plain'); req.onreadystatechange = listener; req.send(null); } function initialiseXMLHTTPRequest() …

Hi there, I have a print button on the bottom of my page so that the user can print the page. I also have a print css style sheet so the images/colors aren't visible and the user can just print the text. [url]http://www.e-squareddesigns.com/websites/pacsoc/pacsoc_design.html[/url] When I click the button in Safari 5.0.2 (for mac), part of the page "whites out" when the print dialog box pops up, and then when I hit "preview" the preview page looks fine, but the scrollbar on the website disappears. I then have to "refresh" the browser for the scrollbar to reappear. Any ideas? Could it …

Do you use [URL="http://google.com"]Google[/URL]'s Chrome Browser? Apparently, a lot of people do. So many, in fact, that it has now [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/article/199961/googles_chrome_passes_safari_in_us_browser_share.html"]passed[/URL] [URL="http://www.apple.com/safari/"]Safari[/URL] in the web browser popularity poll. Is this a big surprise to anyone? The article states that Chrome now has just under ten percent of the market share to Safari's four percent. It isn't a surprise to those who use Chrome. Like other Google products, it's well made, stable, works on Linux, supports dozens of languages and is very fast. What's not to like? The better question is who cares about browsers and the so called browser wars? …

Beginning a project developing a web browser for Mac OS X. Planning on offering a Universal Binary (for PPC and Intel support), 64-bit build, and using WebKit as the layout engine. Am looking for suggestions on featureset, as well as ideas for improving the JavaScriptCore framework and rendering engine. The idea here is to provide a very feature rich and light-feeling alternative to the speedy, yet bloaty Safari 5. My only fear is competing with Apple's Nitro JavaScript Engine.

Here's the page I'm dealing with: [URL="http://fiftyeightadvertising.com/bio.html"]http://fiftyeightadvertising.com/bio.html[/URL] The design is a mixture of tables and divs, because I picked it up after the original deployment.

My design renders fine in Firefox and IE 8, but the footer text shifts up a bit with Safari (on Windows). If …

In Safari it just returns to the previous full page (for instance, if I was viewing google before I went to my page and clicked the iframe buttons, it returns to google rather than the previous …

Safari 4.0.3 is out now and available for [URL="http://support.apple.com/downloads/Safari_4_0_3"]download[/URL] from Apple, for both Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. While there are the usual claims of making things more stable when using third party plugins and in particular for handling the HTML 5 video tag, it is with regards to security strengthening and bug squishing that the real interest lies. So with the latest update Apple says it has fixed issues which impacted upon users logging in to the iWork.com document sharing service, an Apple service embarrassingly enough and I should have said prevented users logging on to be …

Bravo to Google for daring to compete in the two-party system of the world's desktop browser market. And kudos for bucking the status quo to design a "modern platform for Web pages and applications," as its [release statement](http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/why.html?hl=en) read. But there's also skepticism out there about Google's bravado, and about its motives for the whole browser project. "Google wants to control the way people do business on the Internet, and the way to do that is to control how they get there," said Gwyn Fisher, CTO of [Klocwork](http://www.klocwork.com/) which makes code analysis tools.
