Apple recently rolled out an update to its Safari web browser for Mac with new features like enhanced push notification settings coming to OS X 10.9 Mavericks users. The most significant among Safari version 7.0.3’s new features is greater control over push notifications, which in the past required per-website management.

With the latest release, users can simply uncheck a box for “Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications,” which effectively disables all incoming push attempts. In addition, the update also includes a fix to an issue that could block the receipt of push notifications. Support for webpages with new top-level domains like “.cab” and “.clothing,” has also been added, allowing Safari to move directly to a webpage instead of initiating a Web search.

Other fixes include an issue that would cause a webpage to load prematurely when typing a search term into the address field, credit card auto fill compatibility and several security issues.


Safari 7.0.3, or Safari 6.1.3 for those of you running older versions of OS X is a free download from the Mac App Store or via Software Update.
