Safari Emulator
Hello Mac Community.

Sorry to say, I'm not much of a Mac fan. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with that thorn in my side I like to call Safari. Recently I started up a new business and we don't have any Mac machines available to test my web pages on.

Is there some sort of a Safari emulator that I can use to test my pages in Safari? Every other browser has a version I can use on my PC.

Not that I've ever seen.

There's a service that, for a small fee, will take a screenshot of a web page in every browser for you...I can't think of the name right now, but I'll check back when I remember it.

Oddly enough, I'm having trouble with Internet Explorer 6 right now and I don't have a PC with which to test my site...

Well, if your having problems with IE6 - which is a brat of a browser too - you can download a pre-installed VPC image of Windows XP running IE 6.

I wish they has something like that for Safari.

I recomend Swift, it and Safari both use the same rendering agent (Webkit).

This is what I'd use if I had to emulate Safari's functionality:

Hahaha, I like Safari. Only issue I have with it is text encodings... it never seems to guess the right one if people don't put it in their HTML.

I actually do like it, it's a nice browsing experience. But I know I can't rely on it. And it's not worth much for developing use.
