As much as possible, I try to make my SharePoint customizations cross-browser. I usually test my scripts in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. This is often good enough in the enterprise world, for SharePoint based intranets, extranets and collaboration.
Nevertheless, there is another browser with a large and loyal user base: Safari, widely used on Mac (and now available on Windows). So I have decided to test the scripts published so far on Path to SharePoint. Here are the results for Safari 3.1.1 on Mac:
- Color coding: OK
- Progress bars: OK
- Contacts list: OK
- Drop-down menu: OK
- Tiny calendar: OK, but Safari displays an horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the calendar.
As expected, the result is not too bad. Scripts that are validated for Internet Explorer and Firefox usually make it in most modern browsers.
OK, back to work… Let’s see if we can improve this countdown script!
