I have no problems at all ... there are odd occasions on which text files that don't get handed over but it happens so rarely for me that I haven't bothered to try to think why.

Apart from that, the only thing that Safari has with SD that OW doesn't is that in Safari you can turn SD downloading on or off via the contextual menu ... but that's set up by Yazsoft. It's not down to the browser.

My problem was that suddenly OmniWeb would start eating up huge amounts of CPU for no reason. I emailed support and they suggested that SD could be causing the problem. Since Iíve had it disabled in OmniWeb I havenít had the CPU problem once. I donít know why it doesnít affect everyone the same or what other factors might make it come up, but thereís certainly still some incompatibility between these two programs.
