The appearance of Safari 5.1 has prompted Smile to release TextExpander 3.3.2, which fixes the text expansion utility's delimiter, key press, and cursor handling in Apple’s latest Web browser under both Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard. However, Smile notes that expanding into password fields in Safari 5.1 still doesn’t work properly. Along with other minor fixes, TextExpander 3.3.2 also now retains proper font size when expanding into Microsoft Word. ($34.95 new, free update, 5.7 MB)
