It's Safari 3 tips day...
Authored by: matthewroth on Jun 13, '07 07:54:09PM

only problem i had was needing to re-install flash and shockwave. the weird 1 was it messed with ichat. i got failed to load errors and long delays. I uninstalled and that got rid of the issue. re-installed beta and removed chax and that resolved the issue. if any one knows why ichat would get funky with chax by installing safari 3 please let me know i am still clueless

Simple. Chax, like SafariStand etal is an InputManager.

The problem with InputManager extensions like Chax, and SIMBL extensions is they work on the entire system.

Also, it's probably the case, someone correct me, that iChat also uses the WebCore framework that's used/installed with Safari or Safari3.

So: InputManager extensions mess up Safari3. And any application, widget, or other item that uses that WebCore framework [in English: 'shared resource'].

In my case, VelaClock uses WebCore.. so that was a dealbreaker for me, so I went back to Safari2 and now just use the WebKit Nightly -- which does not touch/install/use base system WebCore.
