            Bug ID: 157421
           Summary: createDocument/createHTMLDocument should create a
                    document with URL "about:blank", not ""
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 9
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: d at domenic.me

http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?saved=4163 (and a similar version for createDocument) should log "about:blank" in the Log: section. Instead, in Safari 9, it logs "".

This was a recent spec change, sort of. See https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/1174. Browsers do not have interop here, but "about:blank" is the best thing to converge on.
