Hi Sridhar, welcome to the mac! :D
Just so you know, the webkit nightlys will not overwrite the webkit
contained in your OS X installation. What you download from
nightly.webkit.org is a new version of the framework that, when
launched, runs the Safari on your system, but with the newer version
of webkit. There's no installation, per-say, and it's not replacing
anything. This allows you to run a normal Safari instance as well as
one with an updated webkit version.
So the Safari in your /Applications folder with the silver-bordered
compass icon will be running your normal webkit from your system
frameworks, while the WebKit application on your desktop with the
gold-bordered compass icon will be running revision 21612 from the
I hope that helps clear up any confusion!
