Google Page Creator launches

Does it work on Firefox / Mac?

Moritz Petersen, 2006-02-23

Yes. The page is a bit ambiguous, but it actually says so.

Anyway you can share some screenshots?

Well, at least they took the time to create a neat error message.

Typical of Google apps. Windows, IE and Firefox first, then the Mac-centric stuff when they get around to it. Google Earth was/is like that. Google Analytics doesn't show up well on Safari (though they don't throw a nice error box). Still interested in seeing what they get around to doing on the Mac side for Picasa.

Scott, and your point is?

Like it or not, Windows, IE and Firefox have the biggest share of the market, so focusing limited resources on that market makes sense to me.

When Apple released QuickTime 7 it was released for Apple first and Windows users had to wait for several weeks (if not months, can't remember now) until they could get it. I remember several websites where videos were encoded with the new codec already, which Windows users weren't able to see.

Typical of Apple apps?

Armin: No — typical of The Industry.

Typical of the industry is that we still have to care what browser and OS are being used.

I think it is not necessarily the market share that drives Google there. Safari has some quirks/limitations when it comes to client side XSLT and the fancy Ajax stuff. So it is simply a lot more work.
Apple could fix that to make Safari a first class citizen in the shiny new Ajax world. (I don't know how difficult it would be).
My gues Konqueror, sharing the roots with Safari, should share the trouble too.
