From MacFixIt’s report on Safari 3.1:
1Passwd is one of the input managers broken by Safari 3.1.
PithHelmet broken. This input manager is also broken by Safari 3.1.
Utterly backwards assignment of blame. Safari 3.1 doesn’t break these hacks; these hacks break Safari 3.1. Input Manager hacks are not “plug-ins”. There is no supported API to enable the functions these hacks provide, which means they’re unsupported by Apple, which means that if they break a future release of Safari (or whatever other apps they patch) the fault lies entirely with the creator of the hack.
If Ted Landau were dead, he’d be rolling over in his grave.
