Wow, MIT LEGEND Anne Hunter deserves a huge congratulations on a well-earned retirement https://t.co/ejLtpQX5ee — her influence on EECS students cannot be overstated. She touched all of our lives, without her MIT will not be the same.

Yeah, I get a 5–10 second freeze in Safari every time it tries to fill a password. :(

I imagine it as a kind of built-in version of Sparkle. So Apple wouldn't be distributing anything, it would all be a Mac API on the user's computer.

Another issue people have discussed recently: the problem of apps getting moved while they're running.

Apple ignores this problem because Mac App Store apps are installed root-owned in /Applications and can't be moved without giving admin credentials.

Yes, but I don’t think that’s the main problem. Every site I’ve tried that failed in Safari worked in both Chrome and Firefox.

Every app outside the Mac App Store has to roll its own software updater. This is how we get software update problems. Apple has left this gaping hole in the system forever. Why is there no system process and API for 3rd party app updates?

This feature… the idea is great, execution is terrible.

Email notifications? API? Comments? Assignments? Checkbox for processed/states? A way to ask follow-up questions? Anything to allow me to work with this? Nope. pic.twitter.com/4xVEbZrWFh

DoorDash hid a data breach of 4.9 million customers for almost five months, after previously denying hacks. Delivery addresses, order history, phone numbers, the whole shebang, all breached. For delivery workers, their driver's license was also breached. https://t.co/NNBFytSGyv

I like Safari, the interface, the speed, the memory and battery efficiency. But I think it’s past its peak due to the extensions issues and basic site compatibility. For the average user, if you have to use other browsers for certain sites, what reason is there to come back?

That’s beyond the point. They knew Safari was bad before. Switched to chrome. Never came back

Current users of Safari continue to encounter issues - especially this one (I argue is a high impact issue) and only reinforces/pushes more towards finally switching to Chrome

Because bad moves such as the above - have very apparent consequences. All this further strengthens/reinforces the conclusion that Apple software is sub-par and use Chrome

Not to mention the many sites that now push users to Chrome vs Safari

For some reason there seems to be some stereotype that Safari is bad, slow, heavy, not modern or whatever and for a lot of people Chrome is the only browser they consider, and I don't know why - Safari feels so much lighter than Chrome to me

I was referring to kexts. Apple's abysmal treatment of hardware developers caused SIP to be disabled, which opened the door to Google's incompetence–although they're certainly not the first.

The iTunes 2.0 installer ran rm -rf /Volumes/ as root. Took hours for them to pull it.

The Google Keystone bug isn't a justification for System Integrity Protection. In fact, if SIP didn't exist, Google would most likely have noticed the bug before shipping it. So in a sense, SIP is partially to blame for the disaster.

Nest's "learning" feature has been the source of constant annoyance and frustration.

Just look at this. It makes no sense at all. pic.twitter.com/PeJA4at5Ez

Not sure that’s true. This page implies that Safari has only 36% share among Mac users: https://t.co/AM3vhE8ile And, anecdotally, the regular Mac users I knew all prefer Chrome and/or didn’t even consider using Safari.

I know Apple discontinued its AirPort routers, but seeing people on Twitter note (correctly) that the AirPort Utility app crashes on iOS 13/13.1 when you try to enter your password. Hopefully Apple updates it so people who own AirPorts can continue using them properly.

It’s not just extensions. As I’ve been writing about, an increasing number of sites simply don’t work in Safari anymore, so users are forced to use other browsers.

People: Why does a web browser installer need to modify the system?!?

Me: $ lsbom /System/Library/Receipts/com.apple.pkg.Safari13.0.1MojaveAuto.bom | grep /System/
