Following are some interesting features present in Safari:
Reading List: Whenever you come across something interesting on the web, save it to Reading List. Then when you have more time to read articles, watch videos, or shop, your link-filled Reading List is ready and waiting. You can browse through the entire list or see just your unread pages. And Safari Reader lets you see it all in a clean, uncluttered space free from blinking, annoying ads. Reading List shows you the title of each web page, the website it appeared on, and a text preview of the first few lines. You can add or delete a page, and toggle between all the links or just the ones you haven't read.
Privacy Pane: Some websites you visit can leave data on your computer. The new Privacy pane in Safari preferences shows what kind of data websites are storing and lets you remove it. You can also customize cookie settings and choose whether websites can request your location information.
Private AutoFill: Safari makes sure your information is kept private. Whenever you come across a web form, Safari automatically detects it and lets you choose to use AutoFill to complete the form with information from your Address Book. No information is ever added to a form automatically unless you say it's OK.
