Basing Safari on KHTML and not Gecko was the worst software decision
Apple has made since OS/X was released, for their users (because khtml
will never be as standards-compliant as gecko, leading to problems 
like this), for their developerment (gecko/firefox has multiple paid
staff pushing it forward; khtml has none), and for their perceived
market share (gecko/firefox has in a space of months captured more
market share than Safari has in years.)

Yes, maps.google.com /is/ awesome.
