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.

Hello,

Welcome to the Internet, where "/s" means "sarcasm."

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