Considered small (but welcome) updates, Apple has this evening pushed both OS X 10.7.4 and Safari 5.1.7 out of the door.
Together, both of the public updates carry with them a whole host of new stability, performance, and network-related bug fixes, some of which have been likely long-awaited by those who were not able to test the software while it has been in its beta phase(s), over the last few weeks.
