Mac OS X Apple has released Mac OS 10.4.3. This update weighs around 100MB and includes fixes for AFP/SMB/CIFS/FTP, AirPort/BlueTooth, Core Graphics/Audio/Image, Spotlight, Address Book, AppleScript, Automator, Safari (it now passes the Acid2 test), and much, much more. The update is available via Software Update, or as stand-alone packages (delta|combo).

That is VERY interesting because it said the same with my wife's iMac. Mine was 97 MB, her's was only 56 MB. Her machine isn't crashing tho'. All seems well. Did you also download several other updates at the same time? I am wondering if some of the size is because it incorporates older updates?

Yes, I think the one software update grabbed is the delta (from 1.4.2 to 1.4.3) whereas the combo updates from 10.4
onwards.
Still fetching the combo but apple's download site is slow as molasses, under high load I suppose.

Seems like some core libraries are broken. Opening Safari yields:

I have installed the combo update package (~100MB) and things have improved, I can run Safari okay. Cross fingers

About the size of the update:

Software Update notes:

* The update's size may vary from computer to computer when installed using Software Update.
* Because some updates are prerequisites for others, you may need to run Software Update more than once to get all available updates.
