Apple has just released an updated version of their web browser, Safari. Version 4.0.2 has said to have addressed the security issues found on the previous versions. These flaws could lead to cross-site scripting attacks and arbitrary code execution.

The bugs in the earlier version of Safari 4 caused it crash for users.

This latest version has improved the stability of the Nitro JavaScript engine and the latest compatability and security fixes.

Apple also boasts this version to be the fastest browser for both Mac and Windows. According to the company, Safari loads and draws web pages up to twice as fast as Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.7 times faster than Mozilla Firefox 2.

We think Windows users are going to be really impressed when they see how fast and intuitive web browsing can be with Safari,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Hundreds of millions of Windows users already use iTunes, and we look forward to turning them on to Safari’s superior browsing experience too.”
