    Apple today updated update Safari for Mavericks to version 7.0.3, adding improvements to compatibility, stability, and security. The update includes a new option for turning off push notification prompts for websites, improves credit card autofill, adds support for webpages with generic top-level domains, and fixes several security issues.
    The update is a free download for Mavericks users and is available through the software update tool in the Mac App Store.

    Apple has also released new versions of Safari 6.1.3 for Mountain Lion and Lion users.

    I'm starting to hate Safari!

    It still loads a totally random page before I can finish typing the URL. WTH! :mad:

    Can we proactively ban any "is it snappier" posts?

    Yes! this feature alone is worth an update itself. Wonder why it was never an option when it was introduced...

    I assumed this was a feature.

    After "It's not a bug, it's a feature", here's "It's not a feature, it's a bug".

    Safari lags and freezes a whole lot lately, even with zero extensions. I'm not sure what's wrong, though I've been using 7.0.3 for a while now.

    Same here. On ML and older versions of OS X, I religiously used Firefox, but decided to give Safari a chance in Mavericks, and LOVED it. So smooth and easy to use! A huge improvement over the Safari versions in ML and older. However, starting with around 10.9.1 or .2, I noticed a lot of lagginess and freezing. Very annoying, and I'm starting to reconsider my options for browsing. Let's hope 7.0.3 fixes this!

    So it's not just me? I'd scroll and it would just stop for a couple seconds then continue. Same thing?

    I'm still primarily using Safari, although I had some issues with the NCAA tournament streams (using flash, so no surprise).

    I ended up having the best success with Chrome, but Safari is so seamless for me to use across the multiple machines that I use. I tend to always end up back with Safari.

    Now all we need is an update to Safari for iOS allowing us to turn off those "OMG our website has an APP!! plz DOWNLOAD!!" notifications we get with certain sites.

    Dang. Was really hoping the "Allow AutoFill even for websites that request passwords not be saved" option would return with this build.

    Try turning off "Do not preload Top Hit in the background" option in the Safari's Privacy Preferences. That should fix the problem.

    Check your Internet folders, make sure there are no outdated plugins from previous OS X installs getting in the way.

    It won't show you the update. You get Safari updates in seeds, not via MAS. Expect .14 to show up in the next seed update.

    Oh god, yes. It's the most annoying thing ever.

    Not only that, Safari for iOS needs to stop taking me to apps without asking me first just because it reloaded a tab. Fracking annoying.
