Guy Brian has discovered a new Safari vulnerability which affects Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) users who haven’t changed default feed reader preferences.
This vulnerability allows phishing sites to silently read all the user data from hard drive without him knowing that.
There is however a workaround for Safari users on Windows OS. Continue Reading
A month after being granted U.S. patent No. 7,441,196, a company in Los Angeles called EMG Technology is suing Apple for “the way the iPhone navigates the Internet,” according to a press release. The suit did not specify the damages EMG is seeking, but the company has hired a serious gun: Stanley Gibson, one of the lead trial attorneys who won the $1.35 billion patent infringement lawsuit against Medtronic.

And it won’t be released (yet). As in the interview with one of the Opera guys it was said:
Opera’s engineers have developed a version of Opera Mini that can run on an Apple iPhone, but Apple won’t let the company release it because it competes with Apple’s own Safari browser.
Oh Come On!
Thanks to haavard for the source.
Rumor: Apple wanted Opera to be the iPhone browser
According to ValleyMag, unknown source reported that before the first iPhone was released, Apple wanted Opera to build the browser for the iPhone.
Negotiations dragged on for six months, the sticking point being exclusivity — Apple wanted it, but Opera was unwilling to commit, seeing a larger market for licensing its proprietary software to multiple handset manufacturers. Eventually, Apple walked away armed with ideas from the negotiations and built a version of its own Safari browser for the popular mobile device. Continue Reading
After yesterdays Adrian Kingsley benchmark test (Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 vs. Safari 3.1 on Mac OS X), I’ve decided to add Opera 9.5 Beta and run them on Windows machine.
Used latest browsers builds (nightly or weekly, all released on April 8th. So how were the results? They’ve actually shocked me a bit, so here you go:
Apparently I did that after installing Safari on my Windows machine as Apple’s Software License Agreement says:
“2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions. A. This License allows you to install and use one copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time.”
With the recent Opera 9.5 SDK for devices release and upcomming iPhone SDK, does that makes it possible?
Check “Opera Browser Coming To The iPhone” video and you decide.
Did he just said “Yes!”? No, that was just the end of conversation (or do they just want you to think so?). Not in the near future. I bet that we will see more information regarding Opera for iPhone in the upcoming months. And who knows, maybe at the end of the year, you will be reading FavBrowser.com on your iPhone using Opera ;-) Continue Reading
Not so long time ago they have released Safari 3.0.3 Beta. Actually I think it was on July 31st when I wrote “Where’s Safari 3.0.3 Beta?“. It’s recommended to get this update (if you are using any previous Safari 3 Beta version). Sorry for a delay, but somehow I haven’t noticed this release.
Changelog doesn’t say much, but enough to understand what was done.
Safari 3.0.3 Windows changes:
Latest security updates,
Safari 3.0.3 Mac OS X changes:
Latest security updates.
It’s been a month since last Safari 3 release (3.0.2).
Assuming that it only took less than 2 weeks to release Safari 3.0.2 right after 3.0.1 was released this makes me wonder a bit… I am wondering if Safari developers team are developing it silently or they just wanted to get more attention before iPhone release.
If anyone knows any Safari 3 developers blogs (where they are talking about upcoming releases, but not about released versions), please let me know.
