safariiconApple today seeded a new Safari 8.0.3 beta for developers running OS X Yosemite, along with a Safari 7.1.3 beta for Mavericks and a Safari 6.2.3 beta for Mountain Lion.

Registered Mac developers can download the new Safari builds through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Mac Dev Center. In the release notes for the new betas, Apple asks developers to focus on features like Extensions, Password AutoFill, HTML5 video playback, notifications, and more.
Focus Areas
Please focus testing on the following areas:

- General website compatibility
- Extension compatibility
- Password AutoFill
- HTML5 video playback on popular video sites
- Using the Web Inspector to debug websites
- Reading List read/unread state
- Editing bookmarks in the Favorites Bar and Bookmarks Sidebar
- Website notifications
In addition to the forthcoming Safari update, Apple is also working on another general OS X Yosemite update, OS X 10.10.2, which saw its second beta seeded to developers last Friday.

Why? Because all previous builds of Safari were so badly broken you couldn't use them?

He never implied all of them were. I'm pretty sure it was a reference to Safari 8.0.1.

Release log from the last version of Safari (8.0.2):

- Fixes a rare issue in which some users were unable to access Safari after installing the 8.0.1 update.

No, because thats all he could think of in time to get the first reply in.
Simple things please simple minds ;)

Anyways, even the much ridiculed Safari 8.0.1 worked just fine for me. Still, more refinements are always welcome :cool:

Safari keeps hanging for me on my brand new MacBook Pro on random websites. It even crashed on MacRumors last night. Pathetic.

It also hangs on my iMac randomly and a few friends have also reported the same random crashing issue so I know it's nothing I am doing wrong. How can Apple screw up something as basic as a web browser?


Can we please kill the myth that making a Web Browser is simple and basic?

Safari timeouts

It's not the first webpage that loads, but the second or third I try to load won't. I can then click on another shortcut and that works fine. This bug has been in since I started using Yosemite/Safari 8.0. Still not fixed. Hopefully this gets fixed in 8.0.3. It's starting to get really annoying.

Works great here, I left Firefox/Chrome for it.

Good. There was something up with 7.1.2. Was opening slow and took time to quit.

They haven't got this right yet

At least for me the beachball is becoming the most regular interaction I'm having with Safari. Really doesn't like scrolling.
