Just installed it on my M1 Macbook Pro and there's a huge improvement in scrolling, now it feels a million times smoother than in stable Safari build.

I don't get it
It's a joke people make when there is a new OS update with no noticeable improvements, but now safari actually is faster.

Risky though, it's a beta version of Safari right? So could run into some nasty bugs.
Nah. It's been solid for me for many many versions.
