Customer Question

Current version Safari 5.1.10, need to update. Computer is MacBookPro4.1 about 8 years old. Tried a free download from Safari website, didn't work, just got the same version with todays date and time. Trying to set up online banking but bank is telling me I need to update Safari 5.1 to be able to use all aspects of online banking. Isn't 5.1.10 a later version of 5.1?

Hi, and thank you for asking your question. Just to confirm, are you using OS X Snow Leopard (or an earlier version) as your OS? If so, Safari 5.1.10 is as far as Safari can be updated on a Mac running that OS version. To work around this issue, you may download and install another browser, Google Chrome, which will work just as well for your browsing/online banking needs (without facing any errors): If you need any further assistance with this issue, please be sure to reply back using the box below.Otherwise, if you could kindly click on (and submit) one of the stars at the top of this page to rate my service, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
