Yahoo! Mail finally works with Apple’s Safari 3

“When it comes to OS X applications, Yahoo is normally a bit (or a lot) behind the curve. The rather lackluster beta 2 release of Messenger for Mac provided Leopard compatibility but not much else, and offered proof of just how far behind the curve the company was. Yahoo! Mail is another example of Yahoo dragging its feet, since only yesterday did the new-look Mail get an upgrade to work with Safari 3 on OS X,” Justin Berka reports for Ars Technica.

“For the record, Safari 3 has been out since June of 2007, and the latest iteration of Yahoo Mail (called All-New Yahoo Mail) has been out since August. During the past few months, Safari 3 users on OS X have had to deal with with Mail Classic, or have been forced to use Firefox to get to the newer Yahoo Mail,” Berka reports.

  1. I wonder when MacDailyNews will work with Safari. I took just over 2 minutes to boot the site and then open this article, reminds me of the old days of dial up. The most surprising thing is that it opens lickity – split on my windows XP computer at work.

  2. GREAT! I can now use my Yahoo! mail with Safari. I’ve been doing the “just this time” thing since they did the “upgrade”, it’s about time they recognized the need.
    So. When can I expect my .Mac mail to start working properly again?It’s getting frustrating having to empty the Trash before I can look at, much less discard, more messages.

  3. I can see the headline now if/when MDN ever gets their shit together: MacDailyNews FINALLY works well with Safari! Mac users rejoice. Windows users smugly let them know they’ve been able to surf it for years that fast.

  4. I see a lot of whining around the different comment areas on this site about how it takes MacDailyNews forever to open and load in Safari, such as “I wonder when MacDailyNews will work with Safari. I took just over 2 minutes to boot the site and then open this article, reminds me of the old days of dial up.”

    Just to let you know, with Safari 3.0.4 on Leopard 10.5.2 is took me 5 seconds to load the site, and with a click on the link, another 5 seconds to load the article. All advert images are on, only the pop-up blocker is activated… So, maybe the problem is on your side. Something akin to having an empty tank and then yelling at the car company for making a car that won’t start.

    I mean really, if it was taking everyone 2 minutes to load this site, a guarantee you that there’d be no no comments for any articles, because everyone would’ve deleted the bookmark to the site.
