Late yesterday, Apple released Safari 7.0.6 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.1.6 for OS X Mountain Lion.

The releases contain improvements to security related to Apple’s desktop browser and are both recommended for all OS X Mavericks and OS X Mountain Lion users.

These updates follow the release of a new version of OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 (build 13F14) that Apple released to developers yesterday…

Safari 6.1.6 and Safari 7.0.6 are available for OS X Lion 10.7.5, OS X Lion Server 10.7.5, OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and OS X Mavericks 10.9.4.

Both fix a WebKit issue where visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. Detailed information about the security content of Safari 6.1.6 and Safari 7.0.6 can be found in Apple’s support document.

You can update Safari to the latest available version by choosing Software Update… in the Mac menu.

A new beta of the upcoming OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 release (build 13F14) is also available to Apple’s registered Mac developers via Dev Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

    So safari will never return to windows right? :/

    • Pretty much. Safari was great on Windows back when Apple was maintaining it but now Safari is embedded deeply into OS X. It would require so much work in order to port everything to Windows I doubt it would be worth it. If your a Windows user I’d stick to Google Chrome if I were you. As much as I hate Google they know how to make a great web browser…
