After months of quiet, Dave Hyatt, developer of Apple’s Safari browser, has been on quite the blog-roll lately (get it?). His latest entry details enhancements to Safari 1.3, and I’m pretty excited to see both the contentEditable and designMode properties are now supported. Additionally, most of DOM 2 is now supported and exposed to the JavaScript layer. Also very cool is the addition of XSLT support, though Hyatt doesn’t go too deep into the level of support (at the JavaScript level, or only when loading XML documents?). Too bad the XMLHttpRequest object still doesn’t quite work right. But I don’t know, it’s starting to look like a Mac Mini may be in my future.
