Does the Windows version render stuff differently then the Mac version of Safari? Our website has over 34% traffic from Safari Browsers. Just wondering as we're mostly a Windows shop.

    i really can't see why this should be closed - it's a clear question, depending to web-development which can definetely be answered.

    What user agent strings do you see in your logs? e.g. are these iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad users accessing your site? They will all report as Safari also.

the rendereing-engine is the same, so is looks the same. what could be different are form-elements without css-styles - those will be displayed in the operating-systems look-and-feel... (you havn't posted a link to your site, so you're the only one who could find out)


To my knowledge they do not. They are both based off of the webkit browsing engine. Google Chrome also uses this engine.

  • That's all great news. Glad to hear just OS specific will not display excaulty the same.
