- additional support for FireWire and USB devices
- improved compatibility for third party applications
- previous standalone security updates and Bluetooth Update 1.5

Mail and Safari are noticeably improved on slower machines. Improvements are less apparent on dual processor (at least for me). I agree, Ted, I like the network volumes appearing on the desktop etc.

Interesting. Safari kept crashing on me today after the update.

Lisa, do you have any third party Safari enhancers installed (hacks that change appearance, icons, etc.)?

Did you install from the Software Updater or download the disk image? If you installed over the internet, try installing again with a downloaded version. Repair permissions after installing. I noticed a new set of permissions is being used with this update.

Jeff,

Any idea what the difference is between the 10.3.3 Update available March 15th, and the 10.3.3 "Combined" Update available March 16th ?

I think the "combined" update will update 10.3.0 all the way to 10.3.3 without having to update several times to get to the same place. I am seriously considering 10.3 for my home now.

Yes, Ted is correct. The combo update also includes all the security updates, which the regular update does not. I prefer to install the combo update, seems to fix more problems. You can run an update over, so if your regular update seems buggy, then do the combo.
