Apple Releases Safari Technology Preview 62 With Bug Fixes and Feature Improvements

safaripreviewiconApple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced over two years ago 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 62 includes bug fixes and feature improvements for Intelligent Tracking Prevention, JavaScript, Media, Rendering, Dark Mode, Web API, Web Inspector, SVG, Web Animations, CSS, IndexedDB, and Accessibility.

The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for both macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave, the newest version of the Mac operating system that’s currently being beta tested by developers.

Apple outlines a few known issues in this release for the macOS Mojave version of the browser. Text does not render properly in the Smart Search Field in Dark Mode and there is no usable WebDriver implementation.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store (or in System Preferences in Mojave) 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.

build 62 has crashed twice on me now after refreshing tabs.

Previous builds were stable for me.

Same here. I now can't launch it at all - it just crashes while loading my tabs. I've rolled back to Release 61.

If anyone needs it, this is the download link for STP 61: https://secure-appldnld.apple.com/STP/091-95261-201807018-01EC2FD2-85EB-11E8-AB5B-AEA972136C40/SafariTechnologyPreview.dmg

Or, I just discovered, turn the develop menu on in Preferences > Advanced. Quit and restart Safari.


You don't need to restart Safari to toggle the Develop menu on and off.
