Even on my 2011 Edition MacBook Pro, I still use Chrome, but Safari is loved by millions across the world. Today Apple updated Safari to version 5.1.4 which includes a bunch of updates and fixes. From things like improved JavaScript performance, to screen dimming issues when watching HTML5 video.




The full list of stuff baked into Safari 5.1.4:


  • Improve responsiveness when typing into the search field after changing network configurations or with an intermittent network connection
  • Improve JavaScript performance (on Mac OS Lion)
