I'm getting the following error when trying to update to Safari 6.0.2. Looks like a common problem.

The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.)(102)

iPhoto and XCode updated successfully.

Security changelog can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5568 (for a very short time this link was on the HT1222 page, but they removed it.)
Really interesting, they are crediting people for finding these security gaps. Has that happened before?

I also get the error when trying to download by the way.

I was able to download and install the update without incident.

I really wish Apple would invest a little more in Safari. There are a couple of obvious features that all other browsers have that, if implemented in Safari, would push me to dump Chrome and use Safari as my daily driver.

Oh! At least name them?

Safari has always worked great for me. I've never been able to get a stable release of Chrome on the Mac. Issues with either the RAM consumption, lag when scrolling or pinching. A mini second of faster access won't change my life though.

I wouldn't say that there are huge omissions, rather a multitude of smaller items that add up to something large.
  • Move the tabs to the top of the interface. There are common UX reasons for this, such as a natural flow of information from top to bottom and reducing the visual impact of the tab/omni box area. You'll notice that Chrome for Mac minimizes the space by placing the traffic lights and full screen control on the same row as the tabs rather than them having a dedicated row. Safari uses this space to duplicate the page title that already exists on the tab
  • Allow users to pin tabs. This exists in pretty much every modern browser except Safari
  • Add favicon support on tabs. Especially when pinning, it is easier to navigate tabs by image than it is to read the text on each tab
  • Move the "Open in new tab" above the "Open in new window" option in the right-click menu. It makes no sense to default to open new window in this age of tabbed browsing
  • Unify address bar and search bar. - This was only recently done in 10.8
  • Add "Duplicate Tab" option when right-clicking a tab
  • Allow multiple homepages
  • Sync all browser data/settings/passwords to iCloud (encrypted, of course). This is a standard feature on most modern browsers. Safari only syncs bookmarks today
  • Encourage more development of 3rd party extensions/themes. The library for Safari is severely lacking compared with Firefox or Chrome. This is a BIG one
  • Enable site translation tools as a standard feature. As someone who regularly visits sites in various languages, Chrome's translation tools are extremely valuable

I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones off of the top of my head. There are a lot of great things about Safari, it just needs a little love.

Web inspector

Still with an unusable web inspector? I'm happy with Safari 5.

It's gotten WORSE for me!!! Aside from the fact that text STILL DISAPPEARS as you type it, now there are blocks of mis-rendered webpage elements that appear! Way to go Apple. Good f--- up.

Now, with the updated version, whatever that comes after that first forward slash exists no more. Well not really. It's there, but hidden. You will see the whole address only if you click inside the address/search bar. Otherwise, all that you see now is forums.macrumors.com no matter on what page you are.

Isn't like that with me, but I'm not surprised with the inconsistency. I bet others aren't getting the disappearing text but I still am!!

Getting this error:
"The operation couldn’t be completed.
(NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.)(102)"
Could be solved by:
1) Reconnecting to the Internet
2) Relaunching Mac App Store
3) Restarting the computer
4) Using "Clean My Mac" to remove the temp files.
And even if that doesn't help ("Clean My Mac" sometimes misses some temp files) :
5) Using "Find Any File" to find and manually remove the temp files, related to old version of this software

In most cases, steps 1) - 3) are enough.

I really wish Apple would reduce Safari's memory usage. At no point should "Safari Web Content" use up 1.99GB of RAM!!!

I agree. I have 16GB of RAM at my disposal, but Safari still shouldn't constantly be using 2GB of it.
