Aww, no IE8 but yes Safari 5.1? That poor browser doesn't even have Function.prototype.bind
Sorry, something went wrong.
Safari 5.1 is nearly 2 years old and actually outside of our support range, however 5.1.7 is still the "current -1"
Also... seems like a weird thing to nitpick.
Nah, I just hate Safari 5.1 with a passion, so was curious whether I could use "jQuery 2.0 doesn't support it!" in the same way I use that for IE8.
It's an awful browser... pretending to be modern, just a fraud.
If this issue doesn't exist in 5.1.7, we shouldn't be special casing it.
Well if all the iOS/Mac users have switched to Safari 6 then sure, but I suspect there are a lot of them still around. And adding another condition to support it here isn't nearly as bad as the 10% of the library we stripped out for oldIE.
And lets be clear about how broken Safari 5.1.7 is if we don't add this half-line of support: http://swarm.jquery.org/job/2433
