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)
