Vertical CSS play; introducing CSS

Talk about simple: Joe Gillespie has posted a clever way to vertically centre a block of a known height on a page (via Digital Web).

Also, this little experiment I posted automagically sets the height of three divs to the height of the tallest one. The JavaScript isn’t the greatest, but you get the idea.

Apple has unveiled a new browser for its computers. Called Safari, it claims excellent standards support. Not only that, it’s open source and reportedly faster than the popular Mac browsers. Great UI, too. The browser is based on KHTML — the same engine as Konqueror.

From Adrian Simmons’ post to evolt.org’s thelist, Safari’s UA string:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/48 (like Gecko) Safari/48
Keep an eye out for that “Gecko” keyword (sad to see the “Gecko” might become the “Mozilla” of the new generation of browsers).

Mark Pilgrim has a detailed review of some of Safari’s shortcomings. And Apple (via a e-mail posting) has complied a list of its extensive changes and additions to KHTML and KJS.
