I am facing an issue with Safari when I execute the following code. Please help me to resolve the same.

In the following code, I just want to check the user age. If it is greater than 60 then I am alerting the user. Also in the background, I just want to call a timeout() method, using setTimeout() javascript function,for every 15 seconds when a mouse is clicked or a key is pressed.

The problem is that the below code is executing fine in IE. However, it is not executing in Safari.

In IE, when I enter the age value 62 and presses the button, I am getting an alert message. After 15 seconds, I am getting another alert message from timeout() method.

In Safari, When I enter the age value 62 and presses the button, I am getting an alert message. Immediately, I am getting another alert message from timeout() method.

The code is below:



Why the same code is behaving differently in Safari?
