    The hard drive on my laptop died last week.  (Booooo!)

    My computer guru was able to retrieve most of the data that hadn't been backed up yet.  (Yea!)

    I spent the last three days researching and testing out new laptops.  (Booooo!)

    After much debate, I made the decision to desert the evil empire and bought a new MacBook.  (Yea!)

    I set up the laptop only to realize that HubPages doesn't seem to like the Mac browser Safari.  (Boooooo!)

    Any suggestions?  Do we know if HP is planning on becoming compatible with Safari anytime soon?



    PS-If you do not back up your data regularly, stop whatever you are doing and do it now.  NOW!

      Very good advice to backup.You may wish to look at Flock. It is based on Firefox, but has a lot more bells and whistles.

    I'm a Mac-- and Firefox works just fine.

    I don't know why they continue to insist on giving you Safari. I still use it sometimes, too, when I want to have two browsers open.

    Hope you enjoy your Mac.

    Larry is working on getting everything on the site to work with Safari, but the Hub editor still has some issues.  We'll post something when it's safe to use safari, probably sometime in May.

    Update:  I downloaded Firefox and I think I am going to use it for all browsing as it seems a bit smoother(?) than Safari.

    Thanks All!

    As long as everyone is changing browsers, might I suggest a migration from Internet Explorer 6 & 7 to Firefox as well?
    One of the hardest parts about the HubPages redesign was getting it looking right in Internet Explorer.
    Internet Explorer 6 was released in 2001, and many things in web design have changed since then.
    Do the world a favor, and upgrade now to Firefox.

    For those on the PC side who don't think they care about Safari problems, the Google Chrome browser is built off the same code base, so it often has many of the same problems as Safari.

    I have used various browsers editing hubs and browsing hubpages and for me, google Chrome is the worst! and Firefox is the best!

    Yes! yes! yes!! back up! back up! back up! on more than one format, such as memory stick, external hardrive, and discs! upload stuff to your email account etc...

    Before my PC died, I was using Chrome for everything except HubPages.  I thought it was great.  Much better than the constantly freezing up IE 7.
