Apple releases Safari 5.1.2 to fix memory usage, stability, page flashing

Apple has made the free update Safari 5.1.2 available from its website and through Software Update for Mac OS X users.

Apple says the new update solves a variety of issues, noting that it will "improve stability, address issues that could cause hangs and excessive memory usage, address issues that could cause webpages to flash white," and now allows PDFs to be displayed within web content.

The latest version of Apple's web browser can be obtained online for both Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion users, or PC users with Windows XP, Vista, or 7.
