You don’t need a Mac to see your webpage in Safari

In: Neat Stuff

Ever wondered how your website looked in Safari, but don’t have a Mac? Well, now you can thanks to Dan Vine’s automated online screen capture tool.

For those not in the know, Safari is the default web browser in Mac OS X, which is one reason you should care how your site looks in it. Safari utilizes the KHTML rendering engine which is the same engine that powers K-Meleon and Konqueror. KHTML is to Safari what Gecko is to Mozilla (and Mozilla Firebird and Epiphany). One thing I can say about KHTML – it’s fast. I tried K-Meleon just to see for myself and it’s light and fast. Here’s what David Hyatt had to say about the merits of KHTML compared to Gecko.

Anyway, here’s this site in Safari: screenshot. Nothing broken so far. Good.

This issue was discussed some time ago at Apple made many improvements to khtml and the changes will be only merged with kde 3.2 (it is still beta). So konqueror that comes with kde 3.1 and safari will render pages different.

I know this article is old but I believe k-meleon is gecko based, not khtml.

Just be surfing around in net. I definitely found a very informal place with a lot of good stuff for everybody. I will certainly visit your site again sometime. Really good work.
