Safari 3.1.1 and Saft 10.0.7

Saft needs to be updated to handle Safari 3.1.1

I have always used Webkit ever since switching to Safari as my general browser. Being that I’m always getting the newest build, I know what’s coming when Safari decides to upgrade.

Since Apple updated Safari from 3.1 to 3.1.1, Saft, a wonderful “addon/plugin/what-have-you”, breaks. I know Hao Li at haoli.dnsalias.com will be updating it pretty soon, but I have found a quick fix until that is done.

  1. Quit Safari.

  2. Navigate to Applications/Saft.app.

  3. Control click to show package contents.

  4. Open bundle and go to Contents, then Resources, Saft.bundle, and Contents. You’re full path should be Applications/Saft.app/Contents/Resources/Saft.bundle/Contents.

  5. Double click or open Info.plist in your favorite text editor.

  6. Change SaftSupportedSafariBuild to 5525.18. This is to match the current Safari version/build. It will then look like this:
        <key>SaftSupportedSafariBuild</key>
        <array>
        <string>5525.18</string>
        </array>
    
  7. Save and relaunch Safari.
