However one person in the Blueclaw office is unable to view this in his browser of choice, Mark one of our designers who like all hippy creative types chooses to use OSX and browses the web using Safari 5. Instead of the much talked about doodle Mark is greeted with an message telling him to install Google Chrome for “A faster way to browse the web”.
But why is this done? Our best guess is that it is a ploy by Google to get more OSX users to install Chrome to be able to view this doodle which they will be hearing about and they are probably banking on some of these users staying with the browser.
Strangely Safari 5 on Windows shows the doodle just fine, so this seems to be specifically OSX users.
Update: It seems that some users are getting the doodle in Safari/OSX but there are still lots of reports on twitter (here, here, here and here) of Safari/OSX users not getting the doodle (including our Mark the poor fella).
