Stupid Mac OS X, Stupid Safari

A short entry this one, but one highlighting great stupidity of which I take no responsibility for:

I'm composing an entry in a Movable Type tab of Safari. In the same window are two of the sources I'll be linking to in the entry. I want to look at a third one, but in a new window. Cmd-N, new Safari window pops up in front of the one I was working in. Oops. Wrong, didn't want that, changed my mind. Cmd-w. Window fails to disappear. Cmd-w again. Window still fails to disappear. Actually pay attention to the screen and notice that while the new window may be in the foreground, it doesn't actually have focus and is obscuring the parent window that does, in the background. I know this because the foreground window has its jellybeans dimmed, while the one behind it is happily shining red, yellow and green at me.

I switch back to the parent window in time to see that I've all but obliterated one of my tabs, including the one my half-composed entry was in.

You can add this to some of the other reasons why browsers suck, and add it as another reason why until browsers save state I hate it when I fill in forms online.

This is a good reason never to compose anything long in a web browser. That's the reason why TextEdit.app starts so fast, didn't you know?

That's entirely the wrong way to be thinking about it: this is a reason why web browser suck, and I shouldn't have to write offline entries in TextEdit.

It's bad enough that I remember to write entries offline as it is without having to have another reason to do so.

i've been using the galeon web browser for quite awhile now(cvs gtk2 version lately) and it saves state, you can close it with no worries, it will come back just as you left it all your tabs and everything. and if it gets killed or crashes(not often) it reopens reasonably close to where you left of if not perfectly.

i wish mozilla would do this... oh. come write in my blog (: i took the time to code one up and then realized i don't really have many interesting things to say. so i made it publicly writeable.
