Apple Seeds New Betas of Safari 8.0.1, 7.1.1, and 6.2.1

Apple has released a new Safari 8.0.1 beta for developers running OS X Yosemite, along with a Safari 7.1.1 beta for Mavericks and a Safari 6.2.1 beta for older versions of OS X.

The new Safari builds can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store. Safari 8.0.1 for OS X Yosemite requires OS X 10.10 or 10.10.1, while Safari 7.1.1 for OS X Mavericks requires OS X 10.9.5 and Safari 6.2.1 for OS X Mountain Lion requires OS X 10.8.5.

safari_8_0_1_seed
In the beta notes for Safari 8.0.1, Apple asks developers to focus on features like Extension compatibility, WebGL graphics on Retina displays, Password AutoFill, and more.
Focus Areas
Please focus testing on the following areas:
- General website compatibility
- Extension compatibility
- WebGL graphics on Retina displays
- Password AutoFill when passwords are synchronized across multiple devices
- Syncing history between devices (OS X Yosemite only)
- Importing usernames and passwords from Firefox (OS X Yosemite only)
In addition to a Safari update, Apple is also working on the first OS X Yosemite update, OS X 10.10.1, which asks developers to focus on Wi-Fi, Exchange accounts in Mail, and the Notification Center.

I wish they wouldn't have shelved the Windows version.

IE is a piece of crap.
Firefox is what I use, but it seems like a RAM hog.
Chrome... just... no. **** YOU, GOOGLE.

Why are you using Flash when you could be using the ClickToFlash extension and set it to use HTML5. I don't have Flash installed unless I use Chrome.

Good point, I find them somewhat amusing anyway.

I like knowing they eu still update Lion, it means Mavericks should still get a few years of support.

So get chromium, the open source alternative.


I don't want whatever that is. I want Safari for Windows.
