Safari not rendering font-size correctly

Safari not rendering font-size correctly

(OP)
Hello

I am working on a Web site here:

Link

This is the site with 14px-size text in IE10 (as it should look):



and this is the same page in Safari on Windows (as it shouldn't look):



Does Safari require any special coding in order to be able to see the font at 14px?

Thanks

Use a "vendor specific prefix" to target specific browsers.

Oh, right.

Thanks a lot!

RE: Safari not rendering font-size correctly

I would not waste my time with Safari on Windows. its been discontinued by Apple for a few years now. So any bugs or rendering inconsistencies will not be present in Safari for Mac. As such any real testing should be done on Safari for Mac.

Thanks, Phil.

It's just getting $2000 together for a Snow Leopard!

Thanks for your message.

RE: Safari not rendering font-size correctly

Sorry what?

Snow Leopard is the operating system and its worth $20.00

Current O.S. is Yosemite and its free.

You can get an old Mac Mini for less than 300 bucks that can run Yosemite, and will let you test your sites correctly.

Also, again, testing on Safari for Windows is pointless, as it bears very little resemblance to current Safari's on Mac.

I was just suggesting you do not waste your time. As long as it works on Chrome or FF you can reasonably certain it will work on Safari for Mac.

You even don't have to own an apple or emulate it to get impressions on the look of your site. Simply use http://browsershots.org/

It's surely also not the only service offering screenshots of your site on several browsers in conjunction with operating systems.

Bye, Olaf.

I didn't know that vacunita, thanks.

And thanks to you, Olaf for that useful link.

Cheers!

RE: Safari not rendering font-size correctly

Right now there was an ad to another service: http://crossbrowsertesting.com/
Looks more professional, though I didn't used it.

Anyway, the point is, you're never the first one with a (development) problem and ideas to make (developer) life easier are turned into reality quite fast.

Bye, Olaf.
