Apple Releases Safari 1.2, Java 1.4.2 -- Apple today updated Safari to version 1.2, rolling in a few new features and improving performance. Safari 1.2 now boasts improved compatibility with Web sites and Web applications, the capability to resume interrupted downloads, and support for personal certificate authentication. The browser also offers full keyboard access, meaning you can now navigate Web pages without using the mouse, and supports LiveConnect, a technology some sites use for communicating between JavaScript and Java applets. The LiveConnect feature requires Java 1.4.2, also announced today. Safari 1.2 is a 7.7 MB download via Software Update or as a 7 MB separate download, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 Panther. Java 1.4.2, which additionally offers performance and stability improvements, requires Mac OS X 10.3.1 or later and is a 29.4 MB download via Software Update. [JLC]
