Here's a speculation: Desktop Safari shares a lot of codebase, I believe, with the mobile version. Perhaps the issues with desktop Safari are a microcosm of the broader issues with the Mac in general: Apple's main agenda is to unify the mobile and desktop code and interface -- which inevitably entails compromises for those of us using desktops. Not just on the interface level: every major software project has a hit list of unfixed bugs and issues. Some stay unresolved for years. If the mobile issues are given priority, well... Just a thought." MacInTouch 12:47 PM
