  1. Crap, got the model of my phone wrong in that first post. I have a Nokia 6230, which is now supported.

    I have waited 18 months for this to be included ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Poop, auto proxy config script still crashes Safari. Back to manual proxy config for me… Not the end of the world, just would be nice if it worked.

    Also, the image bug reported on MDN a few days ago where certain jpeg images can crash Safari, Finder, Preview, etc. hasn’t been fixed either.

    But it feels Snappier™! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    Oh, and when you repair permissions now, no exceptions come up, it just says permissions repair completed (unless you have actual permissions problems of course). No more false positives.
