Apple Releases Safari 14.1.2 Update for macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave
Apple today released a new Safari 14.1.2 update that's available for macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave users.
The update likely includes important security fixes, but Apple has yet to outline what these fixes might be.
New Safari updates are normally introduced alongside new macOS updates for the current version of macOS and security updates for older versions of macOS, but the Safari 14.1.2 update is available on its own and Apple has not yet released macOS Big Sur 11.5.
The Safari update can be downloaded by going to System Preferences and clicking on the Software Update section.
We'll update this article when Apple provides details on the security fixes.

To a degree, Firefox doesn't require this, not does Google Chrome doesn't require this. (They do have minimal OS requirements, though).
But what web browser (other than Apple's Safari) requires that your computer have the latest OS releases installed first?
It's just HTML coding, a bunch of videos, and web pages from around the world; in fact, I doubt many web pages are even created and updated on any of Apple's computers -- it's a Windows/Linux world, judging from the number of foreign language characters that show up on Mac-rendered web pages, all those Â (and other geographcal-specific letterforms) that riddle (literally and figuratively) a typical printed web page from Mac Os.
Anyone still running iWeb --you know, "web design for the rest of us!" /s
Text is just a stream of bytes - 8-bit numbers - that must be interpreted through a specified character set. Pretty much every character set of the past (many decades) agrees on how to interpret bytes 0x20 through 0x7f, in line with what was originally ANSI X3.4 (aka US-ASCII), but the interpretation of bytes over 0x7f varies wildly between character sets. Unicode, with UTF-8, gave us One True Way to handle that, and it's (wisely) what most of the world uses now, but there's still a lot of text out there in character sets like CP-1252, and a lot of misconfigured web servers blithely hand out that text without declaring the character set properly.
Another common mistake is UTF-8 encoding text that is already UTF-8 encoded, which makes a real mess out of any text outside of the ASCII range (this produces a pretty recognizable pattern).
But nice try blaming it all on macOS. Claiming this happens on a "typical" web page from macOS is exaggerating the situation by several billon percent.
