    In your Software Update: Safari 1.0 Beta 2 (v74)

    This update is recommended for all Safari users and improves how Safari validates the authenticity of websites that use SSL certificates.

    Now to check to see if my web banking works now.

    I just saw it at VersionTracker and I see that someone has already mentioned it. I'm downloading now (dial up). I have no idea what this version is supposed to do.

    Not for me it's not

    Nothing in my Software Update :( I hope this isn't another "US First" release. Getting kinda tired of Apple neglecting 50% of their users. But that's a whole other topic and I don't want to be a troll :cool: . Looking forward to trying it!

    I guess they've changed more than just this, but i would suspect the main (only?) reason they've made this update public is due to a vulnerability with SSL certificates that was posted on the Full Disclosure list.

    Re: Not for me it's not

    U.S. First is a common marketing strategy in the US as a meand to conserve capital by doing the "main" version first get it working and five time for bugs to be reported (or for movie discribution costs to be recouped) then release a far more bug free international version since the warranty costs are much higher.

    I sympathize with you but take Apple's side on this one. I will admit "warranty costs" might be lower with all server based distribution but am not sure about that.

    I D/L'd it about 20 mins ago via Software Update, and I'm in the UK at the moment.

    I'm so sick of Safari updates not showing up in Software Update for me. Am I the only one? I have never ever seen Safari show up there and this time is no exception. Guess I go to Apple and download it. Bastards.

    Duff-man says.....I bet you moved it out of the Applications folder didn't you....if you put it back in there and try S.U. again you'll probably see it.....oh yeah!

    Must just be something fishy on my mac. Maybe it needs a good scrubbing and hoovering of moth balls ;)

    On the issue of 'US First' marketing strategy - I can agree with what folks say, but I personally believe Apple have not found a good balance between costs and risk of alienating users. I think Apple should be prepared to spend more cash and even time delivering products Internationally.

    Re: Re: Not for me it's not

    Yeah, I did. I don't usually move Apple apps from where they are installed for this very reason but when you install Safari it just opens up a disk image and has you copy it to your hard drive. So I assumed there wasn't a default folder on the drive for it. I mean if there was wouldn't Apple create an installer instead. Oh, well. I downloaded it from Apple and isntalled it.

    The only thing I don't like about Safari updates is that I have to remove brushed metal every time.
    Yeah you can. I just did. All you have to do is go to Safari:Contents:Resources:English.lproj:Broswer.nib and then click on the window icon in the Browser.nib window. Then use Command+shift+I and uncheck textured window.

    Safari not in SU?

    Are you guys sure you have the safari.app in your applications folder?? don't think software update will recognise it if it's not there..

    also to add to the US-first topic: seems like the SU works very well in Finland too.... and it's not a state of the states..;)

    oh and check www.versiontracker.com for updates..

    If you navigate Apple's site you can download it like you could with the first release. Versiontracker also link to Apple's site

    The download on the Apple Safari site is actually the correct one, even though they don't explicitly state it.
