safariiconApple today released Safari 8.0.4 for OS X Yosemite, bringing stability and security improvements to the browser. Apple has also released Safari 7.1.4 and Safari 6.2.4 for Mavericks and Mountain Lion users, respectively.

In addition to bringing stability improvements, the update fixes vulnerabilities in WebKit, which could allow a malicious website to unexpectedly terminate an application or execute code. It also fixes an interface inconsistency in Safari that could have allowed attackers to misrepresent URLs.

WebKit
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an
unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description: Multiple memory corruption issues existed in WebKit.
These issues were addressed through improved memory handling.

WebKit
Impact: Inconsistent user interface may prevent users from
discerning a phishing attack
Description: A user interface inconsistency existed in Safari that allowed an attacker to misrepresent the URL. This issue was addressed through improved user interface consistency checks.

Today's 8.0.4 release comes several months after the release of Safari 8.0.3, which was bundled into the OS X 10.10.2 update in January. The new Safari builds can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

But Yosemite sucks because everyone else says it sucks! And Mavericks is awful too, because it's not Snow Leopard. Lion is okay now, because Apple stopped supporting it so I can pretend it's worth using.

Why are you still using Snow Leopard?

Many of us have machines that Apple chose the prevent us from installing newer OS X versions by artificial means.

Our machines can run the newest versions, but Apple has chosen to prevent us from installing the new versions. For those who understand how to edit Apples installation scripts, it can be worked around.

Sad really. Apple's attempts to force people to buy new machines only ends up discouraging people because we've already seen how fast Apple will artificially render our computers obsolete.

At least microsoft hasn't written it into their code to refuse to install if your computer model is on some list. Windows will install if your processor is fast enough and you have enough memory. Very simple.

Apple supported my white Macbook up till Lion, so how about I have no choice? The laptop still works fine, put in a SSD. But Apple doesn't care. You can of course be snarky and be wrong too, as you illustrate.
