When I heard that Apple brought three new updates for Safari out I was eager to download and install it. For some reason the update did not show up and upon further investigation it would seem Apple has pulled Safari 8.0.1 for OS X 10.10 and 10.10.1 Yosemite.
Apple has yet to say why this update was pulled, although we suspect it never did what it was meant to. Some of the problems people are having are pages often load zoomed all the way in, to going from a program to Safari that was already open and find the tab opens in a separate window, which becomes a bit of a pain.
We are able to download Safari 8.0.1 before Apple removed it, but if you downloaded it what did you find new, or did it cause more problems?
Apple did release two other versions of Safari, and they are still up. Those are 7.1.1 and 6.2.1 for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, both of which are free to download now.
These updates were brought in to make improvements to security, stability and overall usability. We do know that two of the bug fixes are for syncing issues related to iCloud, more details of which can be found on Apple Support.
