Safari to Get Major Speed Boost as Mac Users Clamor for 10.5.2 · Feb 11, 11:56 AM

Mac OS X 10.5.2 is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated dot releases of Mac OS X in the last few years. 10.5.1 was rushed out quickly in order to take care of some nasty bugs, and it seems that Apple is taking its time with 10.5.2 as it looks refine a number of features within the operating system including Time Machine and Stacks.

In the last few weeks, a number of news outlets have said we can expect to see a significant speed boost in Safari. Recent nightly builds of WebKit, which anybody can download here, show dramatic improvements to javascript execution, in large thanks to some some tweaks in the javascript libraries among other things. If you can’t wait for 10.5.2, try downloading webkit and sampling things out yourself.
