Safari Support is IMPORTANT for Mac
Hi Folks,
I'm really in a bind and need safari support.  Here's the poop.

We are a big mac shop, and we serve some 5,000 customers, many of whom are mac users (they're all artsy folk).  For our internal folk (200 users), we deploy macs with both FireFox 2.0 and Safari (comes with the beast) and let our users pick a browser (as CTO, we can debate my sanity over drinks).
Given that strange demographic, my website takes about 1M hits per day as follows:
i.e. 56.7%
ff 22.2%
safari 19.7%
opera 0.2%
netsape 0.3% (I think this might be all me ...)

As you might imagine, my marketing folks won't let me kiss off safari based on these numbers so I need controls that support it.

I understand that supporting Safari is hard, especially with 2.0 and 3.0 on such different planets, but Safari is the browser that comes with mac and not supporting it basically means you don't support apples strategic direction. 

I buy 3rd party software 'cuz you guys do the hard stuff.  Safari isn't easy, but if you did support it, my choice would be a no-brainer.  as is, i can't use karmasoft (much tho I love the functionality).

I thought I'd share stats in case others might also have data that would help you make the internal case for support.
Thx for reading!
Best,
MacGuy

Re: Safari Support is IMPORTANT for Mac
Thanks for the detailed explanation, we understand your concerns. Good news is Safari support for UltimateEditor is in our current development list and we will do our best to support most of functionality in Safari as much as we can, and of course as much as Safari will let us. The current scheduled release date for the new version is the end of October. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Re: Safari Support is IMPORTANT for Mac
Does safari work with the other controls that you sell?  I work for a scrapbooking company, and we're looking to use many of your controls for our internal applications.  However, a good part of our users are mac users (to the extent that they don't believe that IBM clones exist).  Thus I need to know when you'll be supporting Safari.

Re: Safari Support is IMPORTANT for Mac
Some of our products already support Safari, some others treat it as a down-level browser with basic functionality, and the remaing few don't fully support it. We will add Safari support for UltimateEditor first, which is scheduled for the end of this month. Then, we will add Safari support for UltimateCalendar. However, we cannot promise any release date for Safari support for our other products at this point. Sorry for the inconvenience.
