Safari 3.1 is available


In keeping with the 2008 tradition of Tuesday morning updates, Apple released Safari 3.1 today for both OS X and Windows -- marking the transition out of beta status for the Windows build. At 143MB (for the Leopard version, at least), there's a lot of changes, including

  • Improved JavaScript performance
  • Standards support, including CSS 3 web fonts, HTML 5 video and audio elements, and SVG advanced text
  • Developer benefits like editing CSS in the Web Inspector
  • Caps lock alert in password fields (Yay!)
There's much more, of course, and you can read the full change log here. Note that installation requires a restart. Apple's page describes Safari as "the world's fastest browser," but of course your mileage may vary.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
