    Safari updates are really WebKit updates, and virtually everything uses WebKit. Apple Mail uses WebKit to show emails, since many emails are html.

    And if you're worried about the space that a software update will take, you need a bigger hard drive.

    So in other words if apple offers a software update its important to install it for possible future uses.
