    I just installed leopard webkit for safari on my iBook g4 running leopard with safari 5.06... seems more responsive, wondering if anyone is using it and if it automatically updates or if not how one updates it...

    I've been using it for months. Have you run the "enable enhanced features" shell script? It is a more modern version of Webkit. I don't think is any built in updater. I just checked, new version 3 hours ago, so I'll get that.

    ran the enhanced features part. seems like safari is much more responsive, but that may just be me expecting something after the install.:)

    I think the performance gain is there, but minimal. If you have the advanced features, you can view HTML5 video in full-screen. I have clicktoplugin installed, so on most every video, you can view in HTML5 and in full screen.

    just noticed in software update safari 5.06 is listed.... wondering if that is the new update for leopard webkit or if it reverts back to the safari without it

    Haha, it might sound silly but besides being up to date, the main reason was the 'Chrome Theme' for TenFourFox lol It kinda looks like Google Chrome ;)
