Update: Safari 4 still breaks bookmarklets

June 8, 2009 in Internet

When the Safari 4 beta came out, I observed that having more than one tab open would break any resize bookmarklets. I can confirm that this is still the case in the stable release of Safari 4.

Cody Robbins commented on my original post and noted that the problem has been filed as a WebKit bug. This means it may be indicative of larger problems with WebKit's JavaScript framework. Which is a shame, because Java screams in Safari 4.

Interestingly, I couldn't get any resize bookmarklets to work in Google Chrome, which is also based on WebKit, even though I use other bookmarklets in Chrome on a daily basis. The mystery lives on...
