Works just fine on Safari 5.1 on 10.6.8. Wish I would have found this much, much sooner.

I liked Safari Source, but it has been a long time since it worked. Apparently now it does work, but not if you use Saft, for some reason. PithHelmet, which is also a SIMBL plug-in, works just fine now with the latest version of SIMBL (0.9.7); and if I don't use Saft to launch Safari, Safari Source shows up as expected in the Safari preferences. But if I do use Saft, Safari Source disappears from the preferences. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I think it's time all these old Safari hacks took advantage of the new Safari extensions capability and left all these compatibility issues behind. I would probably be willing to pay for the free ones, like Safari Source, if it was developed as an extension rather than the now very problematic SIMBL plug-in architecture. I have paid, after all, for Saft and donated to PithHelmet.

Blame the developer of Saft for his missing efforts to make his once-useful plugin into something that works well also with newer versions of Safari. In fact, Saft has now been a matter of trouble and constant payment for ever-worse updates for YEARS. I paid three or four times, now it is OVER. Not only does the plugin not work well, also is the developer unresponsive and does not reply to bug reports and feature requests.
Get rid of Saft, use Glims instead, or use various new Safari extensions for adding features you'd like to have.

I may have to do just that. In order to accommodate both the 32 and 64 bit versions of Safari, Saft has become something of a kludge. It remains to be seen if extensions for Safari 5 can provide the same level of service all these hacks have offered over the years. No doubt it will take a year or so for all this to be sorted out. But I would be more than happy to see the end of SIMBLE plug-ins and as many Internet plug-ins as possible, including Flash.

I'm pretty sure syntax highlighting already exists in Safari as part of the Inspector. The Inspector includes highlighted source code, resource lists, scripts, timelines, and more.

As I remember right, SafariSource worked together with SafariTidy in Tiger. Now in Leopard SafariTidy will overwrite SafariSource.

I Leopard, it's not possible to make the Strings bold even if the prefs say they are (i.e. in Courier New where there is a Bold option).

IT WORKS NOW BUT ...

... it is not compatible with Safari Cookies so Safari crashes. I would be very grateful if the developer could fix this problem.

This version doesn't work on my iMac Intel 10.5.6 with Safari 3.2.1. It doesn't show in Safari preferences. I think it is to do with security and permissions so a package which installs this plug-in is required. If you give yourself the permissions and drag it to the location specified, Safari sees this as a security breach and would not load it.
