Safari and Content-Type: multipart/x-mixed-replace

Update: 2005-11-15
Yikes! The WebKit Team just added multipart/x-mixed-replace. Thank you very much!

Surfin' Safari asks and i respond:

Random fun question. If you had to pick a W3C technology to implement next in WebCore, which one would you choose? Justify your answer. ;)

(1) XSLT
(2) XForms
(3) SVG
(4) MathML
(5) CSS3
(6) XHTML2
(7) Content-Type: multipart/x-mixed-replace

I vote for support of Content-Type: multipart/x-mixed-replace, something really old fasion but nonetheless handy. First of all, because this is such a great feature to have a server PUSH data out to a client. I often use this when writing CGIs which have long output, so i can push and display line by line to the browser and the person browsing actually immediately gets response (line by line) without having to wait for the cgi to finish its work...
