safari4 beta ?

"In addition, Apple released a beta version of its Safari 4 browser earlier this week"

Quick Fix...Less Problems

Id rather a fix to come out quicker than once a month. The amount of times ive seen system being infected (And they still do) because MS take ages to do a patch.

WebKit is an Apple fork of KDE's HTML and JavaScript engines, but is open source and Apple code has gone back into Konqueror. In making Chrome, WebKit was Google's choice of engine.

The relationship between Apple and the KDE developers hasn't been plain sailing (if you are interested, Wikipedia summarises some of the difficulties).
