Image selection is now done by drawing a 50% translucent blue rectangle over the image. Text selection is still done by drawing a 100% opaque blue rectangle, and then drawing the text/glyphs on top. They should both be done the same way. Note that while drawing a 50% opaque text selection rectangle first and then drawing the text might look pretty in some cases, a lot of people use selection to make web pages with busy/stupid/annoying backgrounds readable... so I don't think we want to break that.
I'm confused as to what this bug is proposing selected text (with various types of backgrounds) should look like.
Vlad, you want to change only the background color, I agree this. Safari is already do it, and it's nice for me. But I think that we should not change the text for readability. And I think that we should keep that the 50% opaque selection background color with white background and the current selection background color should be same looks.
This bug doesn't make any sense to me either. Text selection is done using platform colors/look&feel and image selection is done using partial transparency because you can't just draw the selection color behind an image because you have opaque images...
I agree with Stuart. The change requested isn't clear to me enough for someone to work on this. Closing as incomplete until we get more info.
