Safari 4.0.5

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Safari 4.0.5, an update for Mac OS X and Windows that addresses several items. On the surface, the new version improves performance of the Top Sites feature; improves stability when running third-party plug-ins and Web sites with online forms and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images; and now works to configure settings of some Linksys routers that were problematic. Under the hood, Safari 4.0.5 addresses lots of security issues, mostly adjusting WebKit to deal with malicious Web sites, but also processing images under Windows. The update requires Mac OS X 10.6.1 or later, Mac OS X 10.5.8, Mac OS X 10.4.11, or Windows 7, Vista, or XP. (Free, 30.52 MB for Snow Leopard, 38.59 MB for Leopard, 26.78 MB for Tiger, 30.18 MB for Windows)

I am very happy with this update. I've been using it for, what, about a week--it has been stable, responsive, my myriad plug-ins work, and no more weird flickering and jumping around.

Happy once again with Safari.

I wish they'd fix their SVG printing bug. For example, here's a Kakuro SVG puzzle. Looks good in the browser, but try to Print or Print Preview, half the numbers aren't rendered.
