It’s not a huge update, but it helps.

On Friday, Apple released version 8.0.2 of its Safari web browser.

The new version, a 53.8 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

– Fixes an issue that could prevent history from syncing across devices if iCloud Drive is not on.
– Fixes an issue that could prevent a saved password from being autofilled after two devices are added to iCloud Keychain.

– Improves the performance of WebGL graphics on Retina displays.
– Allows users to import usernames and passwords from Firefox.

– Fixes a rare issue in which some users were unable to access Safari after installing the 8.0.1 update.

Safari 8.0.2 can be downloaded via Software Update or the App Store and requires Mac OS X 10.10 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
