    I'm not seeing much difference. I'm curious what has changed in Safari.

    Safari 6.0.3 is included in the OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.3 Update and contains fixes that improve performance, stability, and security, including:


    • Improves scrolling on
    • Improves scrolling while zoomed in on a webpage
    • Improves performance on webpages with plug-in content
    • A fix for an issue that could cause the inaccurate appearance of an alert that bookmarks can't be changed
    • A fix for an issue that could cause duplicate bookmarks to appear on an iOS device after editing bookmarks with Safari in OS X
    • A fix for an issue that permitted users to access unfiltered search results when searching from when Parental Controls are enabled
    • A fix for an issue that could prevent Safari from restoring the last position on a webpage a user navigated back to

    So basically no one will notice a difference. I was curious if there would be anything we would notice. Oftentimes there will be small changes notices after updates like this that don't make the release notes. Guess not this time around.

    I’m just happy that I can reply from the address to which the original message was sent without having to manually enter it. About freaking time.

    I updated shortly after Keith posted that there was one and the download & installation went fairly quick. I can only assume that a majority of people are currently updating.

    Try the direct download instead of software update:

    Question. When I downloaded the update it was 548Mb, JustMeD's screen shot had the update at 249Mb and karenkcoulter's post stated 800Mb. Why the huge differences in file size? Just curious.

    I'm still waiting for them to add back the ability to use all our photos in the screen saver instead of only a single folder.
