Easily use Safari with updated WebKit
Authored by: stephenj on Jun 25, '05 12:03:40PM
Just a little more elegant of a script:
on pscheck()
tell application "System Events"
return (get name of every process)
end tell
end pscheck

set e to my pscheck()
if e does not contain "Safari" then
try
do shell script "`locate run-safari | grep Scripts`" & "> /dev/null 2>&1 &"
on error
do shell script "`mdfind run-safari | grep Scripts`" & "> /dev/null 2>&1 &"
end try
else
tell application "Safari"
activate
end tell
end if

tell me
quit
end tell

This will find out your path to the run-safari script and will only launch one instance of it.
I use locate to find the script first and if locate's db isn't updated I use mdfind (spotlight).
So this should work for anyone...

if by chance or circumstance...
