How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?

When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.

 
 

Safari 5.1.2

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Safari 5.1.2 for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.6 Snow Leopard. The minor version bump reflects the fact that the updated Web browser introduces no major functionality, but rather addresses a number of issues related to memory usage, where it should now be more conservative, and application stability, along with a fix for a bug that could cause Web pages to flash white. Safari also now supports display of PDF files embedded directly inside a Web page. (Free update via Software Update, 38.7 MB Lion/47.1 MB Snow Leopard)

It's still reloads pages when you hit "back". Terrible. Had to switch to FF.
Yea But the USPS Click and Ship won't support it. Talk to their chat and you'll be directed to Google Chrome.
