Flexbox not working in Safari only

Ok guys, I'm building [my portfolio site](www.williamluce.me) and am using flexbox for the nav. Works like a charm in Chrome and FF, but doesn't render at all in Safari.

I was under the impression they were both Webkit, so I'm not sure what I'm missing. I used Chris Coyier's post to cover compatibility, but I'm running an up to date version of Safari and nothing.

I would recommend you not use flexbox yet as it's currently like building on shifting sand.

If you like living dangerously check out http://bennettfeely.com/flexplorer/

is it working in Opera ? . Although i am quite sure it doesn't work in newest version of IE. I myself is looking to use flex box. sick of floats and positioning issues . Do you use any other tools for cross browser compatibility

thanks James. I guess mainstream adoption for this is going the html5 pace or even slower . i will stick to floats / positioning for now . However i am really excited to see how flex can reduce developer agony in future .
