Finally a Safari update which makes Safari nice and responsive again, thank you Apple :)

"Responsive"? You know, there is another adjective you could have used to describe Safari's speed. ;)

Apple has always maintained Safari for previous versions of OS X... Safari 6.1 is the first version to not support OS X 10.7 Lion. (Plus, they have been regularly releasing security updates of Safari 5 for OS X 10.6.)

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

All Macs that can run ML can run Mavericks. >_>

Love the new safari, but I must admit I'm a bit dissappointed with Apple iCloud keychain access intergration I thought it would be a little more like 1Password, I've tried with a few websites and I always get a message that looks something like this "your password for Ebay could not be saved because Ebay asked us not too"...What's that point!? I've tried with a few websites.

And I can never remember the security number in the back of my credit card, so its a bummer if it remembers everything but that when trying to make purchases because I still have to go get my wallet.. Great work with safari but I'm going to stick with 1Password for now for all my password needs..

In Preferences > Passwords check the option to Allow AutoFill even for websites that request passwords not be saved

Mavericks being free... WHY?

Okay, so you want to stay on OS X ML, but... going by Apple's past logic this is a bit confusing.
I do welcome this, but I'm just wondering...
