Safari 5.1.4 Update

I was just on my iMac and noticed Safari have just released 5.1.4.  Reading on Apple Insider they say the Java script performance has improved by 11%.  Personally I am just glad I can update Safari now without having to reboot my machine.  I am still confused that the update was 46Mb, but it told me I needed 1.5gb to download and install it, seems a tad excessive.

The official details of the update are

Safari 5.1.4 contains improvements to performance, stability, compatibility, and security, including changes that: 

  • Improve JavaScript performance
  • Improve responsiveness when typing into the search field after changing network configurations or with an intermittent network connection 
  • Address an issue that could cause webpages to flash white when switching between Safari windows
  • Address issues that prevented printing U.S. Postal Service shipping labels and embedded PDFs 
  • Preserve links in PDFs saved from webpages 
  • Fix an issue that could make Flash content appear incomplete after using gesture zooming
  • Fix an issue that could cause the screen to dim while watching HTML5 video 
  • Improve stability, compatibility and startup time when using extensions
