Safari 9.0.2

Apple has released Safari 9.0.2 for OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks and 10.10.5 Yosemite — it’s bundled into 10.11.2 El Capitan (see “OS X 10.11.2 Focuses on Improving Reliability and Security,” 8 December 2015). The update enables those using content blocking extensions to play Web-streamed video immediately without delays, and enables you to bypass content blockers when reloading a Web page by clicking and holding the reload button. Additionally, Safari 9.0.2 receives patches for multiple memory corruption issues related to WebKit, plus a fix for an input validation issue in content blocking that could allow a maliciously crafted Web site to reveal
your browsing history (see this security content article at Apple’s Support Web site). Safari 9.0.2 is available only via Software Update. (Free, 85.4 MB, 10.9+)
