Safari 5 Download Page – Major Oops

I started to download Safari 5 for mac to see what it would offer when I discovered that Senior Jobs started forgetting usability…

Oops.

Looking into the code it turns out that these are all different versions. So users are going to accidentally download the Snow Leopard version by default, because it’s not labeled properly.

The really sad thing is this page is still a giant table based layout nightmare. For Steve Jobs to be so adamant about standards and HTML5 they need to learn how to code first… Hell even for a tables based layout this is craptacular!

Edit: Here’s another thing, it’s OS 10.5 only, so Tiger users are out… Hmmm sounds like IE9 blocking XP users from installing. Wow Apple gets more like Microsoft everyday.
