Apple on Wednesday seeded new Safari beta builds to developers, including Safari 8.0.3 for OS X Yosemite, Safari 7.1.3 for Mavericks and 6.2.3 for Mountain Lion, with improvements to browser extensions and more.

The latest Safari builds come less than one week following Apple's release of Safari 8.0.2, which brought fixes for a number of issues related to Web page viewing history syncing and various bugs related to iCloud Keychain.

With the new builds, Apple is asking developers to concentrate on extension compatibility, Password AutoFill and HTML5 video playback for "popular video sites." Other focus areas include editing bookmarks in the Favorites Bar and Bookmarks Sidebar, website notifications and using Web Inspector during website debugging activities.

Developers can download Safari 8.0.3 for OS X Yosemite, Safari 7.1.3 for OS X Mavericks and 6.2.3 for OS X Mountain Lion through Apple's developer portal.
