Safari 4.0.5 offers improvements to Top Sites, third-party plug-ins
By Serenity Caldwell
Whether you’re a fan of Apple’s Web browser, or just having some problems with its competition, there’s now a new Safari update available just for you. Well, you and everybody else—you wouldn’t want them to feel left out, would you?
Safari 4.0.5, which is available for Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Windows users, offers several performance and stability improvements: performance improvements to Top Sites; stability improvements for third party plug-ins; stability improvements for Websites with online forms and Scalable Vector Graphics; and a fix for an issue that prevented Safari from changing settings on some Linksys routers.
If you’re interested in Safari 4.0.5’s security fixes, the update addresses vulnerabilities with ColorSync, ImageIO, PubSub, Safari’s URL handling, and WebKit.
The update, available via Software Update, requires a Mac running OS X 10.4.11, 10.5.8, or 10.6.1 or higher. On the PC side you’ll need to be running Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.
