According to the Google Mac blog:
We want to provide great products and services to the tens of millions of Mac users around the world, because it’s the right thing to do, and because Mac users inside and outside Google demand it.
It’s nice that they hire new Mac developers and all, but they are still a lot of things not working at all.
In increasing order of annoyance:
The lack of rich text formatting is even harder to understand. A lot of things like that work perfectly in Safari. I can’t see how it could be that hard to implement. I mainly use plain text in emails, but you can’t even forward a formatted mail, which is a PITA.
I already hear the “use Firefox” crowd chiming. ;)
Don’t misunderstand me, I like Google, I like Gmail and I think these are the best search engine and free mail service. I think it’s good that they announce their commitment to the Mac, but I’d happily trade GoogleEarth Mac for a decent Safari support in Gmail.
Does Google really care about us Mac users?
Update: I noticed on 27/11/06 that they brought back the “more options” link and the old look for Safari only. It’s perfectly fine for me, I just wonder why they think it’s so hard to make a popup menu working in Safari…
