Yes, usually this is possible straight from your mac. You can can upgrade safari through the system updates within the app store. However this method depends on what version of Mac OS you are currently running. TO check your current Mac OS version you can do the following:

  1. Click the Apple icon in the top left corner of the screen
  2. choose about this mac

Then let me know what version you have.

Assuming from the version of safari you have (5.1.7) that sounds like a pretty old version of MAC OS you are running. I am going to guess around 10.5 or 10.6. If that is the case, you may need to upgrade your Mac OS first before your can upgrade safari to the most recent version.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
