Apple has released Safari 9.0, available for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and 10.9 Mavericks (and included with 10.11 El Capitan). The updated Web browser adds controls to mute audio from any open tab, brings additional viewing options for Safari Reader, and improves AutoFill compatibility. However, the new Pinned Sites feature (which enables you to keep favorite Web sites open and active) is available only in El Capitan. On the security front, the update puts paid to a number of vulnerabilities, including issues with Safari extensions, LaunchServices’ quarantine history, and WebKit memory corruption issues (see complete details at this Apple Support security content page). Safari 9.0 is available only via Software Update. (Free, 85.4 MB, 10.9+)
