re: Safari is the New Internet Explorer VIEW POST


Chrome is way closer to old IE as in, it’s the browser which moves too different from other browsers and taking decisions without comparing. Safari has a slower release cycle, but that’s mostly because they take the time to get performance right. In the end as a user I’d rather have less, but more thought out features.

As a developer, you might think it’s tedious to need to look up support for older browsers, or browsers supporting less, but in the end, it’s so easy nowadays to have proper syntax support with Babel and polyfills only where needed.

In the end, pretending there’s a new browser war doesn’t really help anyone. We should all try more exotic browsers like uc browser and the Chinese ones which have very unique quirks. Only by using, you’ll realise that it’s really not that much work to support everything.
