safaripreviewiconApple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced in March of 2016. Apple designed the Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future release versions of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 23 includes fixes and improvements for Gamepads, Pointer Lock, Media, Accessibility, and Web Inspector.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website.

Apple's aim with Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users on its browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser and while designed for developers, it does not require a developer account to download.

Just last month Apple checked in WebRTC support into WebKit.

See this changeset: https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/210942

Obviously supporting it in WebKit is only one part of the work that needs to be done (all the permissions and associated UI stuff has to be built for Safari and the OS, etc), but it's a pretty substantial part of the work.

I would very much love the ability to enable Favicons. Please at least give us the option.

You know, I've never really felt the need for WebRTC. I've done Hangouts for an online course, or the regular Facetime calls with my parents. But not anything remotely related to WebRTC.
Yeah I get your point. I guess it's a personal thing: I need it for my job pretty much everyday, so I have to use Chrome just for that specific app requiring WebRTC

I think that's the best way to go. No reason you need to have one browser doing everything. Use them side-by-side like individual applications. I just wish we could configure different default browsers "per application".

I completely agree. It's worth mentioning that WebRTC is completely open as well, which in my opinion means Apple has that much more of a duty to support it. Promoting open standards is A Good Thing™.
Could it be that Apple does not want to support anything that competes with Facetime?
