  • Reading List: Easily add webpages and links to your Reading List to browse when you have time.
  • New Process Architecture: Safari has been re-engineered for improved stability and responsiveness.
  • Resume: In the General pane of Safari preferences, you can now choose to launch Safari with the windows from your last browsing session.
