- Tram Ho
Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are currently the most popular browsers in the world, but at the same time, users also have many other alternatives, including Firefox, Vivaldi, and Brave.
Of course, Apple users are most likely to stick with Safari because it’s a native service, but over the years, Safari has fallen out of favor and has been the preferred browser of many Apple users for a variety of reasons. Most recently, Apple also admitted that Safari has a data leak vulnerability. This vulnerability allows websites to access a user’s browsing activity, even knowing the details of the Google account that the user is signed in to.
That’s why an Apple developer working on the Safari and WebKit team took to Twitter to ask users to submit their feedback about the Safari browser.
Jen Simmons explains, she receives messages from users claiming that Safari has become a new version of Internet Explorer and therefore it is important to receive feedback to improve and upgrade Safari, especially for When errors appear, they need to be fixed as soon as possible.
Simmons tweeted: “Everybody I mentioned said Safari is the worst and is the new version of IE… Can you point out the specific bugs and lack of support that are frustrating you? get bonus points for comments. Specifics will help us fix. Vague hate is really counterproductive.”
The very next day, Simmons revealed she had received some feedback advising Apple to “drop” Safari. The Apple engineer emphasized that Chromium is dominating the web browser world, so in the long run, boycotting Safari is not the best way.
Simmons shared: “When I was looking at Twitter this morning it seemed to me that there was a group of people who were angry and really wanted Safari to go away. So let me ask you, do we really want to live in a world dominated by the Chromium browser? 95% market share or not? That’s going to be a terrible future for web browsers. We need more voices, not less and less.”
Obviously, Apple has no intention of giving up on Safari at this time, but of course users of Apple devices have the right to choose any browser they love or want to use to browse the web.
