Annoying Safari just ate my blog
20 March 2006
I rarely use Safari when I'm on my mac but the reason is just because I'm not that bothered. At work I'm 100% Firefox and when I do any web development I use Firefox because it's extensions and bits and pieces makes it superior bar none for that purpose. Tonight I was using Safari actually to blog about Richard Feynman. I had written quite a long text and since I have several tabs open that I wanted to link to I went to one of the other tabs then back to the blog-adding-window. But, because I stumbled a bit with my mouse I accidently pressed the close icon. Result: I lost all of my text I had written :(
It's stupid because it's so easy to trip over the close icon. I prefer the way Firefox does it where they have one close icon for all (or actually the current highlighted tab). Another disadvantage of having the close icon for each tab is that it takes up valuable space for writing the page title out with more letters. Example screenshot
What a silly rant this has been. I'm sorry for wasting your time. I just thought I'd let you know that Safari wasted a lot of mine.
