Are there any issues with using this browser.

It seems to be not able to submit a form in some circumstances.

Any shed of light will be appreciated.

As with any other browser, Safari has its quirks.

But I've never had a problem such as you describe unless the site was written with IE-only (in other words, non-standard) Javascript. In which case, shame on the site author.

Actually it is shame on me and my sub-ordinate(who authored the post).

I had it like: <form name="myForm" action="<%=gothere%>" method="post" >

When I change it to <form name="myForm" action="<%=gothere%>" method="post" action=""> it works fine.

Really baffles me.

Why the double action? I code for Safari all the time and have never had an issue with posting a form.

I have corrected the action being writted twice. We are also doing some cookie processing. Does Safari have any issues specific to cookies??

I tested out couple of times & here is the situation with Safari.

The order in which you define the form matters. It does not work for me in case I define as:
<form name="myForm" action="<%=myRedirect%>" method="post">

it works fine in case:

<form name="myForm" method="post" action="<%=myRedirect%>">
