I know you've mentioned that you don't have much experience with the Safari browser on Windows, but since everybody going to be trying out Chrome, which is using webkit, I wanted to post this problem I'm seeing with Safari and now Chrome on Windows.
I'm getting the following error:
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission www.galileoriaf.com resolve)
when trying to access my applet via Safari or Chrome using 1.6.7 and 1.6.10.
This is the same error that is generated if you try to access my applet using Firefox 3.0 without 1.6.10. I thought since 1.6.10 fixed the problem for Firefox 3 it would have also fixed the problem for Safari and therefore Chrome, but it didn't.
Any ideas on this one?
