Apple has seeded a pre-release of Safari 5.2 to registered developers. Following the release of the OS X Mountain Lion developer preview this morning, a new beta of Safari has been made available with browser features from Apple’s upcoming desktop OS.

Namely, Safari 5.2 for OS X Lion introduces the unified, Google Chrome-like address/search bar. There are some other minor cosmetic changes that mirror the Safari version from the Mountain Lion developer preview.

Apple recently seeded Safari 5.1.4 to developers with bug fixes and minor improvements, and 5.2 is the next major update for existing users that will likely not be released until OS X Mountain Lion this summer.

Xcode 4.4 was also released today to help developers get their apps ready for Mountain Lion. You can see all of our Mountain Lion coverage from today in one place here.
