Apple Releases Safari Technology Preview 87 With Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements

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

Safari Technology Preview release 87 includes bug fixes and performance improvements in areas including Web API, Web Sockets, Payment Request, Web High-level Shading Language (WHLSL), Rendering, WebGPU, and Web Inspector.

The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for both macOS Mojave and MacOS Catalina, the newest version of the Mac operating system that was introduced at the June Worldwide Developers Conference.

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.

Safari hasn't been newsworthy in well over a decade if, in fact, it was ever newsworthy to begin with.


That's because it's not malware like the world's most popular browser.

why aren't iOS betas called iOS Technology Preview?

why isn't a Safari beta called Safari beta?

The world is so confusing


Because the Safari Technology Preview contains all the features that are being worked on by the WebKit team. The Safari beta (for example the beta of Safari 13) contains only a part of those features.

I will start paying attention to Safari Technology Preview when Apple gets rid of its multi-year failure, the butterfly keyboard.
