 Safari Logo

Good news for those who aren’t yet upgrading to Mountain Lion. Apple has made Safari 6 available. It brings several new features, such as Smart Search (similar to Google Chrome’s search bar) Offline Reading List and more.

Here is the list of feature updates:

Safari 6 for OS X Lion contains new features, including:

  • Smart Search Field. Safari now has one field for typing both searches and web addresses.
  • Offline Reading List. Safari saves entire webpages in your Reading List so you can catch up on your reading even when you don’t have an Internet connection.
  • Do Not Track. Safari can send the websites you visit a request not to track you online.
  • Password pane. Manage your saved website logins with the new Password pane.
  • Baidu. The leading Chinese search engine Baidu is now a built-in option for Chinese users.

Safari 6 for OS X Lion also includes improvements to stability, compatibility, usability and security, including changes that:

  • Make the swipe to navigate gesture work with PDFs.
  • Restore the state of Reading List when Safari is launched.
  • Fix an issue that affected full screen video in webpages that have positioned content.
  • Restore the user’s previous cookies after Private Browsing without requiring a Safari relaunch.

Simply go to the Apple Menu and hit Software Update.
