I have a friend who has been, like many others, totally sucked into the world of marketing called Apple. I don’t have anything against Apple, and I actually own a Mac and quite like a lot of the stuff that it does, but I’m the last person to fall for a marketing gimmick.
Like we all know, Apple is king of ooo-aaaaah marketing. They come up with glorified terms like “Breakthrough Internet communications device” that means that the phone has a browser and wifi. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I wish more people would see through it in some cases. Like the case of Safari.
“The best browser in the world.” That’s what Apple likes to call Safari, and from a marketing point, they should. The problem, however, is that
people Mac Fanboys all propagate that line throughout everything and they really believe it. I mean, why shouldn’t they?
Honestly, it’s a pain in the ass. Especially if you’re a website designer. It gives us just one more browser to test code in, and usually we have to make changes and sacrifices to allow Safari’s retarded engine to display the page as intended.
