    In firefox you could just click the check for updates. How do you do it in Safari?

    2.0.4 is the latest version. Updates come through Software Update when they are available

    Your using the latest Safari,software update will take care of it automatically.If you want to be on the bleeding edge,download the nightly builds of webkit.

    I wouldn't recommend downloading the WebKit nightlies. They're unstable and very much in flux, so the main effect of downloading the nightlies will be to reduce the stability of Safari and generate possible incompatibilities. Sure, some people might like being on the bleeding edge just for bragging rights, but 99% of users are better off just using Software Update and sticking to the stable versions.

    system update will detect the new version of safari, but safari's major upgrade (not 0.0.x upgrade) almost always come with new version of OSX, so, it is slow in upgrading.

    the nightly binaries dont touch the system version of webkit or safari. it is a self-contained app called WebKit.app

    as for the rest of the conversation. personally i use safari at home and firefox at work. i like the ability to sync my bookmarks with .mac, and the keychain integration.
