    @Rabskatran I'm 99% convinced that Apple's Software update will not install incompatible Software by Apple. Therefore, you should not be prompted. Apple's software update has not prompted you to update to Safari 5 on your current os, has it? – gentmatt Mar 14 '12 at 19:42

Safari for leopard has been discontinued. If you are looking for a browser that is currently receiving updates TenFourFox is a fork of firefox that is updated along side the primary version, but remains compatible with PowerPC cpu's.

While Safari 5.0.6 is the last version for 10.5, newer versions of the webkit framework can be obtained from the leopard-webkit project https://code.google.com/p/leopard-webkit/ . Webkit based applications can use the newer framework to provide updated rendering.
