Earlier today Apple released version 5.1.2 of Safari. The new version, according to the notes, increases stability, fixes a few issues that could cause hangs and memory leaks, and fixes an issue that would allow web page to flash to white. No more more freaky strobes when loading up a new URL. The patch also allows web pages to show PDF content right inline with the rest of their web material, which is a nice option for programmers who need to show content that way.
Safari 5.1.2 is a 40.2 MB update, and can be downloaded either through the Software Update or directly from Apple.
This update contains various improvements, including fixes that:
– Improve stability
– Address issues that could cause hangs and excessive memory usage
