One of the great things about Internet Explorer 5 for the Mac (IE5) is that it's pretty tight on the html and css standards, and kind of behaves like it's PC cousin. That made developing sites somewhat easier because you could reasonably guess that JavaScript you wrote would work in both, and IE5 has been dominant on the Mac platform since is was made the standard (which was a few years ago). Enter Safari.

Now, we have the KHTML engine to deal with since that is what Safari is based on, and if you cover Mac news, or software, or Mac-whatever, you need to support it, because on the Mac IE5 use has evaporated overnight. Those same results appear at this site, but I see a larger contingent of PC based browsers than Daring Fireball does.
