Apple Releases Safari Technology Preview 126 With macOS Monterey Features

Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced 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 Feature
The current ‌Safari Technology Preview‌ release is built on the new Safari 15 update included in macOS Monterey, and as such, it includes several Safari 15 features. There's a new streamlined tab bar with support for Tab Groups to organize tabs, along with improved support for Safari Web Extensions.

Live Text allows users to select and interact with text in images on the web, but the ‌macOS Monterey‌ beta and an M1 Mac is required. There's also Quick Notes support for adding links and Safari highlights to remember important information and ideas.

Other updates include WebGL 2 and new HTML, CSS, and JavaScript features.

The new ‌Safari Technology Preview‌ update is available for both macOS Big Sur and ‌macOS Monterey‌, the newest version of the Mac operating system that's set to release this fall.

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.

The question is “why are crappy sites using Chrome specific features without testing on any other browsers?”
This.

It's always

[LIST=1]
* Blink (Chrome) implements feature
* Blink submits spec as draft standard; adds "oh look, we already have a reference implementation!"
* Web devs happily adopt it
* Web devs immediately blame Gecko (Mozilla) and WebKit (Apple) for "lagging behind"
* Spec is actually still being heavily discussed and nowhere near Candidate Recommendation — but since Chrome already has it and websites have already started relying on it, the damage is done

Hard to understand all the great experimental work in Safari, when Safari is consistently the most incompatible of the major web browsers. I like Safari, but I’m always switching to FireFox or Chrome because some website I using won’t work properly on Safari. Why is that?

Do you have the option of stopping the tab bar from changing colors based on the website you’re on? I’d find that very distracting.
Yes. Under Preferences... > Advanced > Never Use Background Color in Toolbar.

Pulled or whatever else. The Big Sur version is busted.
