Safari Updated to Version 8.0.2, 7.1.2, or 6.2.2 for Mac Users
Mac users will find a new Safari update available to them, with the precise version offered depending on the OS X release they are running.
The small software update appears to resolve several bugs, in addition to whatever issues may have appeared in another recent Safari update that was later pulled by Apple.
The appropriate Safari updates are available now through the Mac App Store, accessible from the Apple menu and Software Update mechanism.
OS X Yosemite users will find Safari 8.0.2, OS X Mavericks users Safari 7.1.2, and OS X Mountain Lion users will find Safari 6.2.2. The software updates are all small and do not require restarts to complete the installation of.
The release notes accompanying the Safari for OS X Yosemite and Mavericks version suggest the new build resolves all of the issues that were also fixed in the prior pulled release, as well as a resolution to “a rare issue in which some users were unable to access Safari after installing the 8.0.1 (or 7.1.1) update.” Thus, if you happened to download and install the prior Safari update and have experienced trouble with the Safari app since then, the new version should resolve those problems.
An accompanying Apple support page for the Safari updates also suggest several security fixes were made in the new release, though any specific issues or patches remain unspecified.
