Apple Improves Push Notifications and Search in Safari 7.0.3

| Product News

SafariApple released Safari 7.0.3 for Mavericks on Tuesday, an update that includes both bug fixes and feature improvements. The company added the ability to turn off Push notifications for a particular site, and it fixed a problem stopping some notifications from arriving. The release also improves search functionality within Safari, and it improved credit card autofill.

Apple's patch notes:

  • Fixes an issue that could cause the search and address field to load a webpage or send a search term before the return key is pressed
  • Improves credit card autofill compatibility with websites
  • Fixes an issue that could block receipt of push notifications from websites
  • Adds a preference to turn off push notification prompts from websites
  • Adds support for webpages with generic top-level domains
  • Strengthens Safari sandboxing
  • Fixes security issues, including several identified in recent security competitions

Apple has not yet added Safari 7.0.3 to its dedicated security patch note page, so we don't know the specific security bugs fixed.

The update is a 53.7MB download through the Mac App Store.
