Apple Updates Safari: Improves Compatibility, Security, Enhanced Push Notifications

Apple on Tuesday issued an update for Safari, 7.0.3 for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and 6.1.3 for users running older versions of OS X.

Safari received updates that “contains improvements to compatibility, stability, and security.” Most notably users will notice improved push notifications outside of regular behind the scenes security or stability updates. The update now allows turning off push notifications from websites as well fixing an error that blocks receipt of push notifications.

Safari also now recognizes addresses with “top-level” domains (e.g., .bike, .careers, .plumbing) to navigate to the website and not pulling a web search. Credit card autofill compatibility has also been updated.

It appears that most of the updates in the recent push are improvements on features highlighted during last year’s unveiling of Mavericks.

Users can pull the free update from the Mac App Store or Software Update.
