This bug is also in Radar as <rdar://4412355>

Backbase, a leading Ajax vendor, doesn't support Safari.

The related bugs track what's necessary to fix this.

At Backbase we have worked hard on writing support for and reporting 
bugs to the Safari and Opera teams. It's now finally possible to run 
Backbase on both Opera 9 and Safari Webkit nightly (see also our blog at

We have created a playground where testers and others interested can
play around with the Backbase Explorer, RSS Reader and 
Travel starterkit on the (almost) supported new webbrowsers. Please stop by
at http://playground.backbase.com.

The Backbase version running the playground is still experimental and may 
contain issues. A list of known issues is shown on the index page. If you
find an issue you can report it at playground@backbase.com or discuss it in
this forum thread.

Have fun!

Based on the most recent comment from Backbase developers, is it time to mark this bug resolved yet?

If not, what are the remaining blocking issues?
Comment 3 Sjoerd Mulder 2006-09-13 00:11:58 PDT
Bug 4045 is the most blocking bug now. e.g. it doesn't allow large xmlstructures and complicated xpath query's to be executed

From email Sjoerd sent today: "The umbrella bug about Backbase can [...] be closed. We support Safari now completely!"
