safari 5 1 4 seed
As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple today began seeding Safari 5.1.4 to developers for testing, signaling the next round of improvements for Apple's browser software. Safari 5.1.4 is available in versions for OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and Windows, and the release notes ask developers to focus their testing on JavaScript performance, interactions between plug-ins and zooming, and PDF printing.

JavaScript Performance Enhancements
Safari 5.1.4 on Lion includes many fixes that enhance JavaScript performance. Please test webpages that use JavaScript and look for compatibility issues.

Plug-Ins & Zooming
Please test interaction with plug-ins and the appearance of plug-in content
while zooming. Please test zooming using gestures and keyboard shortcuts.

Printing PDFs
Please test printing PDFs loaded into Safari as well as PDFs displayed in iframes.

Using PDFs Printed from Webpages
Please test links in PDFs created from webpages using Safari 5.1.4.

Safari 5.1.3 was released just yesterday as part of OS X 10.7.3 and is a Lion-only release for now, as Safari 5.1.2 remains the most up-to-date version available for Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Windows users.

Is it snappier?

I'm all for Safari fixes, but I would love to know when iOS 5.1 is being released. Lots of iCloud bugs that need fixing.

As far as I'm concerned, they completely broke it with 5.1. Safari is the whole reason I am still on OS X 10.6.8. Gotta admit I'm still pretty peeved that they would break so many plugins that I rely on daily with a x.1 update. I wish they'd make the plugin architecture more flexible again - the Evernote web clipper sucks compared to the capabilities of the Safari 5.0x extension, and I'm not sure if 1password is as usable either. Having a right-click context menu is so much more usable than having to clutter up the interface with a bunch of buttons and icons.
1Password works as long as they don´t update the plugin, because this usually causes the browser to freeze. Evernote sucks now though, I hardly use it via plugin anymore.

It's always nice to see Apple further improving Safari.
