How do i go about setting thing up so i can install the nightly builds,I have in the past run nightly updates when I was using firefox without too much problem just a little unstable at times,is it the same with Webkit...Brian

You can't "install" a WebKit nightly build the way you can with a Firefox nightly build. WebKit nightly builds don't even include a browser – they only include WebKit. You can of course set up a shortcut in your Start menu or on your Desktop that points to the run-nightly-webkit.cmd file if you want easier access to the nightly build.

Next step i right click on the run cmd file & let it run where it seems to copy files. Could anyone assist & confirm that is all I have to do & how do i tell if the update has been applied.....

> Nightly builds don't affect your installed version of Safari. The copying you're seeing is just copying things into a temporary directory, which is where the nightly runs from. Replacing your installed version of WebKit with a version from a nightly build is not supported.
