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 67 includes bug fixes and feature improvements for Pointer Events, WebRTC, Media, CSS, JavaScript, Web Animations, Shadow DOM, Web API, Apple Pay, Web Inspector, Web Driver, and Storage.

The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for macOS Mojave, the newest version of the Mac operating system that was released to the public in September, and macOS High Sierra.

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.

484 out of 555 with all Experimental Features enabled. Up from 479 for many, many versions.

Is it worth trying it out?
Only really for web developers. Not worth it for the average consumer as you’ll run into too many issues. Basically a beta for things to come in consumer releases of Safari.

The Preview still didn't fix the text-gradient issue I reported couple of weeks ago. I guess it'll take time to polish the bug. I have html test page if anyone is curious. See screenshot attach:

I've been running the technology version for awhile, not a developer, with 0 problems. I like the ability to clear all caches, so google can't keep sending me adds I don't want. Other than that, everything works fine

I never ran into an issue, I've been using the technology preview release since it was introduced, and am not developer. I do not know what you mean by too many issues, as opposed to zero issues. Of course, you could be doing different things than I

For me, there are two issues with Safari which mean I use Firefox (Nightly) on my Macbook. It's a pity, as Safari is a smoother experience generally, although I do like how I can customise Firefox with userChrome.css.

The first one is the way it reloads pages, especially forums, when swiping back. Often delays for a second or two then reloads and the forum list jumps around. Irritating, but if that was the only issue I might switch back.

The second one is cookie management. I have an Applescript which opens Safari (Tech Preview), goes into the menu and deletes all cookies, and I use this to start Safari. However, I'd really like to be able to do what Firefox does which is to have it keep cookies from favourites I select, and trash the rest on browser close.

Apart from this - if the above two don't bother you enough to switch browsers, for example you're happily using Safari, then using Tech Preview causes no issues as far as I'm aware. Might as well use it! You end up with both apps anyway, so you can always run the "old" Safari if for whatever reason the Tech Preview version doesn't work well.
