Flogging a dead browser

I like that the Safari web browser is built on the KHTML rendering engine, but that's where my love for it ends. It's not a popular browser, and the only thing that seems to be keeping it afloat is Apple's support for it. It's not a good browser to develop for, there are things you just can't do with javascript in Safari, that you can do with the other popular browsers.

I could see Safari eventually catching up to the rest, but they have a lot of ground to cover. And they would need to get their users to upgrade quickly. I for one don't think it's a browser worth supporting.
