....that WAG doesn't look this bad! I just accidentally installed Safari with an iTunes update and opened it up just to see how WAG was looking in it. My God, PLEASE tell me the header doesn't look that bad, that there's just some glitch in Safari for Windows that makes it look like it's coming through it shitty 8-bit color or something. Ugh.

Installed Safari on the laptop, the site's header looks fine...I guess it may just be some glitch on the work PC(it's got one of those shitty Intel Extreme Graphics onboard VPUs).

i didn't really notice a difference between the snapshot and the site pic to be honest.

Really?

Ok, well, try this:

Open the pic of the site in Safari in a tab

Open the pic of the site in Firefox in a tab

Switch between the tabs and watch the WAG header.

You'll notice that in Safari, on the jacked up PC at work, the header looks like it's being displayed in a lower color depth than everything else on the page. You'll see a lot of dithering on the "glow" and "reflection" of "Whip Ass Gaming". In FireFox, or Safari on a decent PC, it doesn't show up.

It's gotta be the work PC's Intel Extreme Graphics thing. Safari on my laptop, and on the PC here at the house, display the header correctly.

could be the work pc is set up to display 16-bit color depth instead of 24 or 32-bit. not too hard to change that.

Agreed, but when I checked, it was, indeed, set to 32bit color. That's the whole thing: There's just simply no reason for just the header to be showing up like that when everything else displays fine. Like I mentioned though, that's the only Windows computer I've seen it do it on...

It's gotta just be a glitch with the PC version of Safari. I've noticed quite a few other things that it just simply can't do on the PC, but does on the Mac version(like playing gifs at full speed). Apple really needed to let this one cook a bit longer before putting it out.

Have you tried it with the new patch? I think it was just a security patch though.
