Safari CSS and what ivany.org looks like

CSS drop shadow effect

I discovered today that Safari is one of the only browsers that supports the text shadow attribute in CSS. I found that sort of odd. Since few people use Safari (it’s the Mac OS X default browser so if you don’t have a Mac you can’t use it) I figured I’d show you all what part of this site layout looks like to me. In case you are curious, the following is how I created the shadow:

h1, h2, h3 {
font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
text-shadow: #111 2px 2px 2px;
font-weight: bold;

Canadian Revenue Agency Rejects Macintosh Safari Browser

Well this sucks. I just tried to access the online tool on the CRA website so I could update my address. Turns out they don’t “support” Safari: My Account – Notice to Macintosh Safari users. That’s sort of silly. The warning I got was that it’s an Apple problem and not a CRA problem. This sucks. I tried Firefox and (gasp) IE but both of those crashed when trying to access the site after it did some Java check.
