When there is an update to a newer version of a browser like this update to Safari 5.1.4, is there an article that goes over the best way to update to a newer version of a browser that one knows of? Is it best to close all apps, install the update, turn the computer off, turn it on and hold down the shift key until the gear and progress bar are showing, when this is finished, do a restart of the computer.  I hav always wondered the best way (if there is a best way) to update to a newer version of a browser so you avoid potential problems.  Is there a Support Article that goes over installing and updating to a newer version of one's browser, in this case Safari?
