Well, looks like I can retire WebKit for a little while. The Safari developers have released a beta of version 4. I had a bit of trouble starting it at first (Mac OSX 10.5.6). It was the Glims plugin which was crashing it. I removed it from /Library/Application Support and Safari started up nicely.
Update: Turns out Google Gears doesn’t work in this Safari 4 beta.
Update 3: Safari, even in the development WebKit nightlies exhibited an irritating “bug” with the WordPress 2.7 administrative interface. It would cause a modal overlay dialog to hang. The dialog appears when editing a post with the visual editor (e.g. add a link, upload images, etc.). This is still quite present in 4 beta.
Update 4: (June 11, 2009) The bug mentioned in Update 3 with the modal dialog has been fixed in Safari 4.
