Safari 10.0.3

Apple has released Safari 10.0.3 for OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite and 10.11.6 El Capitan (macOS 10.12.3 Sierra also includes it; see “Apple Releases macOS Sierra 10.12.3, iOS 10.2.1, tvOS 10.1.1, and watchOS 3.1.1,” 23 January 2017) with patches for WebKit-related security vulnerabilities. The update deals with multiple memory corruption issues that could allow arbitrary code execution after processing maliciously crafted Web content, plus a state management issue that could lead to address bar spoofing. Safari 10.0.3 is available only via Software Update. (Free, release notes, 10.10+)

You can head off into the wilds of Sierra with confidence when you're equipped with Mac expert Scholle McFarland's detailed what's new list. She also teaches you new Sierra features like Siri, app tabs, Desktop and Documents folder syncing, Optimized Storage, Universal Clipboard, and Picture in Picture. Still, our favorite chapter is "Discover the Little Things in Sierra," which covers the tiny changes that make a big difference.

I keep a copy of Opera on my macbook Pro for when (frequently) Safari goes "spinning beachball"

I click on update and the when computer tries to restart I get a box that says 'update details have changed' when I click to see, I get back to the original update screen in the App Store. This I can repeat, going round the circle, for ever it seems.
