Bookmarklet using Macintosh (5 posts)

    The bookmarklet in WP 1.2 uses Javascript to test the browser, and if it ain't Safari it ain't gonna work. I prefer to use OmniWeb 5.0. Is there a specific reason why Bookmarklets will work ONLY with Safari?

    Works fine in Mozilla derivatives, it's not a safari thing.
    I haven't played with OmniWeb in a long time, not sure how it handles bookmarklets.

    The code queries the useragent to see if it's Safari. I don't know enough about Java to know what it's doing, but it is a definite test.

    I haven't read through the code, but it does work in other browsers.
    The WP developers did not write the bookmarklet only for Safari.
    I just downloaded the latest OmniWeb beta, looks like your out of luck for now. Unless of course you use another browser. Safari, Camino, Firefox, Mozilla, or Netscape (probably works).
