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

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.

That.Is.All.
Carry. On.

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.

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.
