Apple Releases Safari 8.0.2 for OS X Yosemite to Replace Previously Pulled Safari 8.0.1

safariiconEight days after releasing and then quickly pulling Safari 8.0.1 for OS X Yosemite, Apple today released Safari 8.0.2 to the public.

The release notes for Safari 8.0.2 are identical to those for Safari 8.0.1 except for the addition of a line noting the problems with the 8.0.1 release.
- Fixes a rare issue in which some users were unable to access Safari after installing the 8.0.1 update.
Other bundled changes from Safari 8.0.1 include fixes for syncing history across devices, autofilling saved passwords, WebGL performance on Retina displays, and Firefox username and password import.

Update: Apple has also released Safari 7.1.2 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.2.2 for OS X Mountain Lion.

I updated to 8.0.1 immediately when it came out, and I've been running 8.0.1 this whole time and haven't experienced a single problem.

Quality control? IMO there's no control when something is released then quickly pulled. That's whoops. And with the amount of $ I'm guessing Apple puts into R&D it shouldn't be happening.

i can't tell if you're serious or not, given that you're complaining about a beta version of iOS.

using safari on yosemite does seem slower than mavericks.


Yosemite overall is slower for me... especially when Safari is playing some video or Flash. The CPU is hogged. I'm not happy with this experience at all.

Then something is wrong with your perception of time or something is amiss with your OS X installation, or a bug.

Safari got much faster on 10.10

I updated, and it legitimately, seriously, really feels snappier. Look at Apples safari site: https://www.apple.com/safari/

"Browsing with Safari is blazing fast thanks to advanced JavaScript engine optimizations that make websites and web applications feel snappier."

HAH! They know us!
