Hello AppleVis Community,
I hope this post finds you all well, or at least in a better state than the latest Safari on the newest macOS update. I don't mean to sound alarmist, but it seems that the Safari "Not Responding" issue has taken a turn for the worse. So, let me ask two sarcastic questions: Is there really an accessibility team at Apple? And if there is, are they really skillful?
If you've been using macOS for a while, you've probably encountered the dreaded "Safari Not Responding" message at some point. We've all been there, patiently waiting for the spinning beach ball to stop spinning while contemplating the mysteries of the universe. It's a classic macOS experience, but it seems that with the latest update, it has become an art form.
Question 1: Is There Really an Accessibility Team at Apple?
Now, don't get me wrong. Apple has made significant strides in accessibility over the years, and we genuinely appreciate their efforts. VoiceOver and other accessibility features have made our lives easier in many ways. However, when it comes to Safari's performance, one can't help but wonder if the accessibility team is aware of the struggle.
Is there a secret room at Apple where a team of experts is tasked with making sure that VoiceOver users experience the thrill of suspense every time they open Safari? Do they gather around a table, laugh maniacally, and say, "Let's make Safari freeze just as they're about to check out that crucial webpage!"?
Question 2: Is the Team Really Skillful?
Assuming there is an accessibility team at Apple, let's delve into the second question: Are they really skillful? Now, we know that Apple employs some brilliant minds, but when it comes to Safari's recent performances, it's hard not to question their expertise.
Is it a deliberate choice to have VoiceOver users play a daily game of "Will Safari Ever Respond Again?" Or could it be that the team is simply too skilled, and they've created a Safari version that's so advanced it's beyond our understanding? Perhaps they're operating on a level of genius that we mere mortals can't comprehend, and Safari's "Not Responding" message is their way of reminding us of their technological prowess.
All sarcasm aside, we do appreciate the hard work and dedication of Apple's accessibility team. They have made great strides in improving the overall accessibility of their products. However, the recent Safari issues do highlight the need for continued focus on this critical aspect of their software.
We hope that Apple takes note of these concerns and works to address the Safari "Not Responding" problem in future updates. After all, a smooth and responsive browsing experience is something we all deserve, regardless of our abilities.
Please share your thoughts and experiences with Safari's "Not Responding" issue on the latest macOS. Let's keep the conversation going and hope for improvements in the future.
Stay patient and persistent, AppleVis community!
