Apple has launched Safari 6, the latest version of its browser, which delivers the most substantial updates of the lot. The new features include support for iCloud tabs, meaning that websites opened on other iDevices can be picked up over on Safari, without having to search for the page again.

At the moment, Safari 6 is only available for Mountain Lion users. Owners of previous OS X versions, as well as Windows users, miss out on the update.

As documented by Apple, here's a list of the new updates to all the packages:

  • Smart Search Field: Safari now has one field for typing both searches and web addresses.

  • Offline Reading List: Safari saves entire web pages in your Reading List, so you can catch up on your reading even when you don't have an internet connection

  • Do Not Track: Safari can send the websites you visit a request to not track you online

  • Password pane: manage your saved website log-ins with the new Password pane

  • Baidu: the leading Chinese search engine Baidu is now a built-in option for Chinese users.
