Check out this cool glitch that happened in Safari! I was commenting on a thread when I found the page was glitchy. I pressed "Select All" to normalize the page--until I moved something again, of course. So, I made this video to demonstrate the glitch. No scripting was used.

Command A is "Select All."
 
Pretty much everything that can be selected, is selected.

Wow, I can't believe you just said that, lol!
 
I reworded "Command + A" to "Select All," seeing that you thought I didn't know what "Select All" was. :P

Last I checked, Atlantis is in San Francisco Bay.
 
What does selecting everything do to fix a page?

It just did for some reason. (That's how I was able to duplicate the glitch.) Once I moved my mouse or scrolled, the page glitched again.

Dirty pixels, safari doesn't know to clear them. How the pixels get created is somewhat of a mystery, but I suspect its a rendering optimization gone wrong. Selecting all forces the browser to change the color of everything, and thus causes all the dirty pixels to update

You didn't know Command A selects all but you wrote lots of code+worlds+ scripts, ehh?

I know what Command + A does. If you read my text above, you'd see that I understood it selects everything selectable.
 
However, I don't know why it'd clear up the "dirty" pixels on a screen. Selecting ≠ cleaning, but it does clean it for some reason.
 
Let me repeat myself a third time for you: Selecting All fixed up this glitch temporarily. Of course I know what it does because I used it; I don't know why it fixed up the glitch temporarily.
 
I'll repeat myself yet again, but in upside down English if it helps you understand:

Do you get it now? ;P
