Some key features of Safari 5 include:
- Improved HTML5 support: Safari supports over a dozen new HTML5 features including Geolocation, full screen for HTML5 video, closed caption for HTML5 video, new sectioning elements (article, aside footer, header, hgroup, nav and section), HTML5, AJAX History, EventSource, WebSocket, HTML 5 draggable attribute, HTML 5 forms validation, and HTML 5 Ruby.
- Hardware Acceleration for Windows: Use the power of the computer’s graphics processor to smoothly display media and effects on PC, as well as Mac.
- Safari Developer Tools: A new Timeline Panel in the Web Inspector shows how Safari interacts with a web site and identifies areas for optimization. New keyboard shortcuts make it aster to switch between panels.
In case you don’t feel like downloading Safari web browser + QuickTime, here are all the demos.
Control media playback and apply a variety of CSS effects to video delivered with HTML5.

Even with NoScript plugin installed, users were still vulnerable. Fortunately, May 27th update fixes that.
