Alongside today's release of iOS 4.3.2, Apple has also pushed out Safari 5.0.5 and Security Update 2011-002 for Mac OS X. The updates are available through Apple's download pages and through Software Update.

Apple's download notes for Safari 5.0.5 indicate only that the update includes the latest security updates.

Security Update 2011-002 is available as a small update for Snow Leopard systems, while the Leopard versions are much larger and incorporate additional changes that were previously made to Snow Leopard.

- Security Update 2011-002 (Snow Leopard) (4.43 MB)
- Security Update 2011-002 (Leopard - Client) (241.35 MB)
- Security Update 2011-002 (Leopard - Server) (473.19 MB)

Sticking with Chrome & Firefox.

Firefox is so bloated these days. I recently switched over to Safari after using Firefox for the last 6 years.

Shouldn't Safari updates move to the app store [TM] eventually? It's not part of the OS.

Apple should add an option to the app store [TM] to allow simultaneous checks of:
1. updates in OS X app store
2. updates in OS X software update
3. updates in itunes app store

One click - scan them all and ask for download choices and permission.

Has the update caused headaches for someone? I know it's causing me headaches. Can't go into main system and I am stuck at login page. If I do manage to go in, the entire system crawls to a halt after a minute. This was right after the "update".

Installed both and restarted. Every things working without a hitch.

It installs with Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Lion (and I'm pretty sure it installed with Tiger as well). Meaning there's not a box to uncheck to not install it, so yes, it is actually part of the OS. No one is forcing you to use it though.

Safari at long last

;) I just updated Safari, and am actually pleasantly surprised.

More usually I've used Opera, preferring that over Firefox in overall appearance, and also responsiveness. Safari, at least with me, has been an also ran in this contest, as seeming terribly slow. But of late have not had much patience with it, and certainly no expert.

But in curiosity after this update my initial impression is that now, strangely or not, it seems quite snappy. No further testing beyond that, although nice to have another alternative.

All the more as I am cheesed with Opera at the moment, with their recent forced update to version 11.0. I'm not a power user with any of these browsers, but immediately noticing two dis-improvements to Opera. One that their full screen view of pictures no longer is, and also they helped themselves to my bookmark list to add some of their own at the bottom (apparently unmovable), and I do not appreciate this blatant product placement/advertising. They do boast that Opera is faster now, and maybe it is, but it hardly helps when the first thing their customers notice is that now missing, or added without asking, and not wanted. I'd also note that about the only reason I've used Firefox is because at times Opera will simply not do something, which in every case Firefox always has. For instance, being able to access Apple's site, but inability to use their navigation at top of page; that persisted for several days (and no issue with Firefox) and then, as other anomalies with Opera have, ceased to be an issue. Still like them, but they are beginning to press their luck.

Might be reason enough to give Safari another look.

I wonder if this update will fix the random crashes I've been having with Safari...

Just doing little things, like opening a new tab whilst Facebook is loading in another etc (no flash or anything) - then Safari would just 'quit' and tell me to report it.

I thought maybe it's something to do with the new MacBook line, I'm using a MBP 2.2 i7, 8GB.

That would be an issue with Flash rather than Safari - then again my sister (who is a big Facebook user) hasn't noticed a slow down.

Because firstly the appstore doesn't deal with applications that require admin privileges and secondly Safari provides more than just a browser it also provides a series of frameworks for various parts of the operating system and third parties to rely upon.


How is it confusing that Firefox developers ranted and raved about hardware accelerated layers and here we are in 2011 and the performance is WORSE than it was 5 years ago. Firefox is riddled from top to bottom with bugs that not only are Mac related but related to rendering and so forth - any one worth their while could easily read through the mountain of bugzilla reports to see Firefox developers refusal to fix long standing bugs in their code.

Sorry, but for all Safari's faults I'd sooner stick with something that performs well than simply running off to Firefox to feel as though I'm 'stick it to the man'.

Firefox 4 loads pages faster than Safari 5 on my Macbook Pro. I am not sure what you guys are experiencing.

Firefox is still unstable. Try opening 90 tabs and it crashes almost 80% of the time. My Safari doesn't crash even with 200 tabs.

And with Webkit2 coming with Lion, Safari will be much more responsive than now with multiple tabs/pages.
