    Ah crap. I had installed the 9.0 beta on Yosemite prior to installing El Capitan just now. I think it didn't bother updating Safari because it's 9 -> 9 and it figured it's the same version. But it's a very different build, and I'm afraid Yosemite's 9 isn't compatible with El Capitan.


    Anybody know a fix to this? Can someone upload their Safari.app from the third beta?

    Bump? Really stuck here, guys. I'm afraid my computer's a bit of a paperweight without Safari. Can someone please upload their Safari.app from the third beta? I can't find it anywhere.

    Exactly in the same position -- Safari won't open after I updated to El Capitan beta 3

    I'm currently in the process of extracting everything Safari-related from the beta 3 installer with Pacifist. Simply copying the .app didn't work. I think I need to copy over all the frameworks as well.

    Will report with what happens.

    Have you tested to see if Safari launches in a different user account? What about Safari extensions?

    Urgh, I'm in the same situation.
    Sucks to have to use Chrome :/

    Doing the same! Be sure to delete it thoroughly though.

    Update: Nope. Didn't work. Same bug. Serves me right, I guess. Fresh install time...
