Even if you don't plan to upgrade to Mountain Lion, as of today Safari 6 is available as an update for older versions of OS This new version includes numerous security fixes and improvements.
For a (long) list of fixed bugs, the the Apple security announcement . There are also some new security related features:
- extensions can now figure out if you are in private browsing mode, which should make it easier for extensions to avoid leak.
- the "https" in https urls is highlighted more, and the lock with more information about the certificate is placed right next to it.
- The safe password feature got redone, but it doesn't look like Safari will suggest new passwords unless you run Mountain Lion.
