safaripreviewiconApple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced four 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 108 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for Web Inspector, Accessibility, Web API, CSS, JavaScript, Scrolling, Rendering, Async Clipboard API, Web Animations, and Media.

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 released in October 2019.

The ‌Safari Technology Preview‌ update is available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences 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.

Having to switch to Chrome when I want to see a 4K YouTube video will always be frustrating
How about asking Google to support HEVC rather than Apple supporting AV1.

I had been a Safari diehard since it came out. Chrome has always felt weird to me and Firefox wasn't much better. Now though? Microsoft Edge! I love it so much. It feels nice and performant like Safari but with the extensions and compatibility of Chrome. Best of both worlds. I strongly recommend it.

Is there a decent ad blocker similar to uBlock Origin that I can use on Safari yet? Wipr and AdBlock are pretty useless for element blocking.
AdGuard works great for all browsers and even apps (like Viber, which has ads in it).

Ublock Origin missing.
proper AdBlock.

It does not work well compared to firefox + ublock. Especially on adult entertainment sites.

Still broken and unusable for me, I use custom internal domains on my own dns servers and every address I try to use opens in google search. Domains are correct inside my network, curl, ping, nslookup, host and even Firefox works but not Safari.
Reporting bugs is pointless, they just don't care.
