Safari 1.0b2 v74 Improves Security -- Apple has released a new version of Safari 1.0b2 to improve how the beta Web browser validates the authenticity of Web sites that use SSL certificates. Since SSL ensures secure connections when transferring sensitive data, we recommend that all Safari users upgrade to avoid any problems on shopping, banking, or other Web sites that rely on SSL. Apple doesn't call out any other changes in this v74 release. The 2.9 MB download is available via Software Update. One note: although Software Update can install the new version with Safari running, it won't quit Safari automatically (which annoyed some people with the previous release), so if you have Safari running, you must remember to quit and relaunch to use the new code.
