Apple has released Mountain Lion to the masses today, while also updating Safari to version 6 for OS X Lion users. This update can be obtained via Software Update located in the Apple menu. Here are the release notes from Apple:
- Smart Search Field. Safari now has one field for typing both searches and web addresses.
- Offline Reading List. Safari saves entire webpages in your Reading List so you can catch up on your reading even when you don’t have an internet connection.
- Do Not Track. Safari can send the websites you visit a request not to track you online.
Password pane. Manage your saved website logins with the new Password pane.
- Baidu. The leading Chinese search engine Baidu is now a built-in option for Chinese users.

Safari 6 for OS X Lion also includes improvements to stability, compatibility, usability and security, including changes that:
- Make the swipe to navigate gesture work with PDFs.
- Restore the state of Reading List when Safari is launched.
- Fix an issue that affected full screen video in webpages that have positioned content.
- Restore the user’s previous cookies after Private Browsing without requiring a Safari relaunch.
So, it seems that everyone is getting some exciting updates today. Personally, I’m most interested the offline reading lists, and new tab navigation features.
