Safari 10.0

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Apple has released Safari 10.0 [1] for OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite and 10.11.6 El Capitan (it’s included with macOS 10.12 Sierra). While it doesn’t include some of the features available in Sierra (such as Picture-in-Picture), Safari now defaults to displaying HTML 5 video when available, enhances security by running plug-ins only on authorized Web sites, improves formatting in Reader view, and remembers the zoom level for each Web site you visit. The update also addresses several security issues, including the usual memory corruption issues in WebKit, validation issues in Safari Reader, and address bar spoofing in Safari Tabs — all of which could compromise user information if visiting a maliciously crafted Web site. Safari 10.0 is available only via Software Update. (Free, release notes [2], 10.10+)
