All of the APIs I mentioned above are not implemented in Safari, and Apple has shown no public interest in them. When you start browsing, the list goes on and on. ... It's hard to get insight into why Apple is behaving this way. They never send anyone to web conferences, their Surfin' Safari blog is a shadow of its former self, and nobody knows what the next version of Safari will contain until that year's WWDC. In a sense, Apple is like Santa Claus, descending yearly to give us some much-anticipated presents, with no forewarning about which of our wishes he'll grant this year. And frankly, the presents have been getting smaller and smaller lately."]  Read the Tea Leaves 9:33 AM
