1Password 3.6.1 for Mac is ready for Safari 5.1 on Snow Leopard

One day in the near future, Apple will release Safari 5.1 in Mac OS X Lion and also as an update for Snow Leopard. And on that day, dear 1Password users, you will be ready.

Sure, we released a huge 1Password 3.6 for Mac update barely over a week ago with support for Firefox 5, Lion, and Fluid 1.0, but we aren’t much ones for sitting around and twiddling our thumbs. We’ve just released 1Password 3.6.1, a minor update with a big new feature: support for Safari 5.1 on Snow Leopard.

Safari 5.1 is a pretty big update that Apple is busy polishing, though we’re not sure when Apple will release it for Snow Leopard. But when Safari 5.1 comes out of developer beta, it’ll bring a bunch of new perks like support for full-screen web content, new features for Extensions (introduced in Safari 5), better Reader integration, and more. This means we were able to bring our new extension interface, which we introduced in Chrome last November, to Safari 5.1. Once Apple releases it to the public, Safari users will be able to enjoy our snazzy new extension pictured in this post.

A few other nips and tucks here and there, and 1Password 3.6.1 for Mac is now ready for prime time. Go to 1Password > Check for Updates to kickstart the auto-update process.
