Need to go back to Safari 3? Here’s how.
So, you’ve tried the new Safari 4beta downloaded from apple.com, and now you need to revert to Safari 3?
That was case for me — as adding hyperlinks in wordpress caused the browser tab to hang (documented by Geek Guides here). However, if you’re thinking about returning to Safari 3.2.1 because you can’t input hyperlinks in wordpress‘ visual editor then think again — you may not need to — as there is now a work-around.
You still need to downgrade?
What doesn’t work
What doesn’t work is downloading Safari 3 and installing that — the installer complains that you already have a newer version on the hard drive and so won’t continue.
Is to re-run the Safari 4beta installer (fetch it from apple.com if you don’t still have it) and run the uninstall from there.
One reboot later and you’re back running Safari 3.2.1.
