Safari=pariah as far as I'm concerned.
As a mac user (not very much by choice, unfortunately), I agree 100%. I'm not stating that from an end-user point of view, safari is any good (it isn't
). But honestly, every time I think of doing some web development on my own I give up when I realize the amount of time I will lose patching stuff because each browser implements stuff in a slightly different way. So, I really can't defend IE7 on this (or any other browser, to be fair, since not even my up-to-date chrome renders acid2 exactly like the reference image).
Could it be possible that they are just a bunch of obnoxious browser bigots?
Maybe they spent truckloads of money getting their site to work on crippled browsers with large market shares and were so burned that they hate ie for life?
