How to Download and Install Safari

How to Download and Install Safari. As Apple's latest and most sophisticated Web browser, Safari offers Macintosh users a number of new features. This includes increased compatibility with Web sites and Web applications, improved functionality and browsing speeds, and the ability to subscribe to and read RSS feeds. While most new Apple computers will come with Safari already installed, users of older Apple models will often have to download and install Safari themselves. But don't worry. It shouldn't take long for you to download and install a free version of Safari on your own.
