Now Available On Software Update: Safari 5.0.2 and 4.1.2 (Tiger)

If you fancy a computer reboot to start off your day in exchange for some better WebKit stability and security, Apple has just pushed a new Safari update down the pipeline, fixing a stable of bugs and freshly revealed security vulnerabilities, including:

• Fixes an issue that could prevent users from submitting web forms

• Fixes an issue that could cause web content to display incorrectly when viewing a Google Image result with Flash 10.1 installed

• Establishes an encrypted, authenticated connection to the Safari Extensions Gallery

The 39MB Safari 5.0.2 update is available through Software Update now, or directly from Apple… and if you’re still stuck on Tiger, Apple’s even gone the extra mile and snuck out a 4.1.2 update for you throwbacks.
