10.4: Build a better Safari
Authored by: djones on Jun 08, '05 10:06:56AM

This is incredible news! Now, the masses just need to unite, and spam the bug tracker with "Aqua widgets overwrite site specified form element styling" so they realize how much designers hate this aspect of Safari. Sure, use them if there's no CSS styling given, but when the designer has set specific styling for buttons and forms, it's downright retarded, and breaks the user experience on those sites.

For input fields and text areas, we plan to use HTML editing to implement these controls, and for the other controls custom renderers will be made. A new theme abstraction will be used to encapsulate the rendering of a native look on the platform with NSCells being used to determine the correct appearance of controls like checkboxes and buttons on OS X.

10.4: Build a better Safari

Ugh, no. I'm a web designer, but I prefer the standard Aqua widgets. Having someone else's choice of colours/styles for things like scrollbars, drop-down lists etc breaks the user experience for me. Not all designers agree with you I'm afraid!
