    Default Apple Releases Safari 5.0.4 with Host of Tweaks


    On the heels of Apple releasing iOS 4.3, Safari 5.0.4 was also rolled out Wednesday. Delivering a number of stability tweaks relating to plug-ins, bug fixes, and compatibility upgrades, Safari 5.0.4 is here and available now for download from Apple and, of course, via Mac OS X via Software Update.

    - Improved stability for webpages with multiple instances of plug-in content
    - Improved compatibility with webpages with image reflections and transition effects
    - A fix for an issue that could cause some webpages to print with incorrect layouts
    - A fix for an issue that could cause content to display incorrectly on webpages with plug-ins
    - A fix for an issue that could cause a Screen Saver to appear while video is playing in Safari
    - Improved compatibility with VoiceOver on webpages with text input areas and lists with selectable items
    - Improved stability when using VoiceOver

    Safari, version 5.0.3, was released four months ago and similarly improved upon security and stability issues. Apple hasn't delivered a major update to Safari in almost ten months. The last Safari revamp came in June 2010 with the release of Safari 5.

    Why does a little Safari update require a restart? So annoying

    I disagree. The current market share figures for Jan 2011 have IE at 43.5%, Firefox at 29%, Chrome at 13.89% and Safari at 6.18%
    I use Safari 99% of the time, then Firefox the other 1%. Everywhere I go I see people using Firefox, friends, at work, at college. I rarely see people using Chrome. I probably see more people using IE than Chrome.

    You have to think about all the computers out there people use for basic use. More than you think, and it comes with windows so even more people have it

    I use firefox all the time but it's the same for me when I go places, firefox.

    Nice to see updates every so often but yeah, I am not much of a Safari user.

    #1 Chrome for most browsing tasks (it is just too lightweight and speedy compared to the rest)
    #2 Firefox for when I want to use a certain plugin
    #3 IE (latest version) for work only
    #4 Safari very sparingly for desktop use if at all for major tasks but it is the only browser I use for mobile because I have an iPhone.

    Because it relies on parts of the core OS. Mainly webkit I believe.

    I disagree. At work I still see a ton of faculty using IE, the rest use Firefox. I prefer FF over Chrome, never use Safari unless I have no other choice.

    I like chrome but don't like google and how they always seem to be collecting info with out consent also some reason a few site won't work with it where as all work with safari although it needs a good bit of speed injected
