    Just checked Software Update and it was on there. 28.1 MB.

    Notes are...

    This update is recommended for all Safari users and improves the stability of the Nitro JavaScript engine and includes the latest compatibility and security fixes.

    For detailed information on the security content of this update, please visit this site: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222.


    Hope this helps. I'm sick of being crashed on.

    Thank you. I've updated to 4.0.2 last night and it is pretty awesome; much better than the older Safari, especially in appearance.

    Apple Releases Safari 4.0.2

    [​IMG]

    Apple today released Safari 4.0.2, now available on Apple's Safari download page or through Software Update. According to the support document associated with the release, the update addresses two security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by maliciously crafted websites. The update also reportedly improves the stability of the Nitro JavaScript engine used by Safari.

    The first vulnerability addressed permits websites to deploy cross-site attacks.
    The second vulnerability permits arbitrary code execution when visiting certain maliciously-crafted websites.
    Safari 4.0.2 is available for OS X Leopard, OS X Tiger, and Windows (XP and Vista).

    Installed and all is good in the world. Not quite sure how I feel about the new purple theme.

    But does it put the tabs back on the top? I'm not leaving the beta until I can get that.

    Interesting. I had been noticing that malformed (my own) javascript caused Safari to crash every time. Maybe this will fix that issue. Or I could learn to code a bit better.

    Reboot?

    It's telling me to reboot after installation. But... it's a browser update! Jeez I feel like we've had to reboot for the last 4 or 5 minor updates. Not even Windows made us reboot for every IE update. How strange.

    I thought I was the only one who liked the 'Tabs on Top'.

    I've searched and searched but doesn't appear to be a way to enable that, which is a shame!

    Downloading and will take a look once installed!

    It update the frameworks that is used by many other applications, so to make sure every app is working fine, the update is required.

    The "loading" tab next to the address bar looks really cool. As well as the Top Sites thing - I'm not sure if it existed before but I've never seen it on the older Safari.

    Those features were introduced with Safari 4.
    I believe this most recent update, to 4.0.2, just came out today. I don't think you downloaded it last night. You might try running Software Update to make sure you have the most recent version. Or, with Safari open, in the menu bar click Safari>About Safari and verify you are running 4.0.2.

    Had a weird problem after install... My MacBook Pro unibody wouldn't boot afterwards. It came to the grey screen and them just kept flashing a picture of a folder with an arrow in it.
    Has anybody had the same problem, and know what it means?

    I've discovered that the crashes I was having were caused by outdated plugins or input managers...check them out yourself. Once this was solved, Safari became crash-free again.
