It's a Safari out there

It's likely not surprising news to you, but a beta Safari browser has been released for Windows. Finally developers can (crosses fingers) test cross-browser functionality for Mac users who use Safari. But before I can get to that point, my OCD (not really, but kinda) forced me to notice that the extra buttons on my trackball optical don't allow me to navigate back and forward in the browser history. That's because the default of ctrl-left arrow and ctrl-right arrow don't work in Safari. Instead you have to application specifically map your mouse to ctrl-[ and ctrl-].

So far I like the Safari browser, but I don't think I've fallen for the trap that Apple laid.
