[FoRK] Testing for Mac's

The biggest discrepencies I'm finding that are important at the moment
between browsers (I don't care much if the look-and-feel is a bit off here
and there) is AJAX related.

All three (IE, Safari, and FF) seem to work significantly differently :-(  I
personally use FF... but, IE seems to do better with AJAX...

Note that MacIE is explicitly EOL. I ONLY use IE for sites that some
doofus has programmed to ONLY accept IE. So, pretty much if it works
in FF and if it looks OK in the web Safari snapshot site, you're
probably OK. But then, you'll need to make it work in IE Win
