If you were to ask developers why Safari is such a pain, you would have known that Apple takes aaaages to implement new CSS standards, and has a policy of “do what we want to protect our users” instead of leaning towards the standardization of their tools.

    There are a lot of important features which are implemented by all the other browsers soon after they are published as new standards, however it sometimes can take up to 2 years to see the support of Safari browsers, if any.
