Safari 5.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

Attention surfer girls (and boys): Apple has released Safari 5.0.4. The new version of the company’s Web browser contains numerous stability, compatibility, accessibility, and security improvements. Web pages with multiple instances of plug-in content, image reflections, and transition effects should all work better. An issue that caused some Web sites to print incorrectly is fixed, too. Also fixed are VoiceOver bugs and an issue where the screen saver could appear while watching video in the browser. Additionally, the update patches more than 50 security vulnerabilities. (Free, 37.65 MB for Snow Leopard, 46.83 MB for Leopard)
