Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the first OS X 10.11.4 beta and a week after releasing OS X 10.11.3.

The second OS X 10.11.4 beta can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or via the Software Update Mechanism in the Mac App Store.

OS X 10.11.4 includes a couple of new features, such as the ability to support password protected notes in the Notes app, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements with few noticeable outward-facing changes.

We'll update this post with any new features that are discovered in the second beta of OS X 10.11.4.

Please be VERY VERY careful when disabling system integrity protection, drivers that have not been optimized and or containing malicious code will not be filtered out by OSX and your machine will be vulnerable... Sorry for the Doomsday message, but fair warning needs to be given.
Out of curiosity, what would be your advice for people who don't use El Capitan and don't have SIP?

(I disabled SIP approximately 30 seconds after installing)

SIP is always the first thing I turn off on my 10.11 installs. I don't like not being in control.

Even with the latest beta that was released today, don't go to this website [removed] I tried it and the website locks up Safari.

Ref: http://appleinsider.com/articles/16/01/25/web-link-causes-safari-crashes-device-reboots-on-ios-and-mac
I got to ask...

1) why would you try this at all?
2) why list the website in this forum?
