After asking a question on iPad bug design reports here, I thought I might ask this question to help fix issues with Safari on iPad. This issue has been prevalent for quite a while now, so hopefully this can be fixed in the future. I will also point out some serious issues with the design.


enter image description here

There are no spaces between items in the footer - this makes it difficult to work out which links are which.

Reputation page on summary page:

There are no spaces between the bars in the reputation graph on the summary page. This is solved for Firefox though.

Question page:

The views, user name, score, etc. are all so close to each other, making it near illegible.

Other bugs can be found on and .

    The 2nd screenshot with missing spaces between daily reputation graphs was reported in this post and solved for Firefox. The 1st screenshot is surprising and likely an unresolved issue from Reducing the weight of our footer. The 3rd screenshot seems like a result of New post summary designs on site home pages.... So 3 unresolved bugs on ipad+Safari from the last 3 major design changes.

  • The graph wierdness is not just be safari - i.stack.imgur.com/Ng3VY.jpg noticed this on my phone running android 12 / chrome 103. Not sure of the screen resolution since my phone does this dynamic resolution thing

    Also, version of OS and browser would be handy!

  • Voting to close as it is unclear if these versions of the browser are actually supported.

    Based on the pattern, it looks like the browser you're using does not support flexbox (at least not fully). Confirming the version would be good.

  • @JourneymanGeek the issue in your screenshot is different and was diagnosed by Robert Longson as the impossibility of evenly dividing fixed length of bars per total graph length and likely the browser not revealing its resolution to the site to avoid fingerprinting. So they are different issues and the issue in the above question was resolved for the other browsers.

    @bad_coder Unless the browser is intentionally degrading the rendered page to prevent tertiary methods of determining the viewport width, then it has nothing to do with fingerprinting. Browsers usually don't do that. Browsers usually display things correctly and just report wrong, or no, information to JavaScript. The way SE now does that reputation graph relies entirely on the browser choosing equal bar widths and equally applying the specified gap (specified only once by SE for all of the bars). So, any inconsistency in the bar width or the inter-bar gap is entirely in the browser.
