Apple Releases Safari Technology Preview 155 With Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements

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
‌Safari Technology Preview‌ release 155 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for Web Inspector, CSS, Rendering, JavaScript, Media, Scroll to Text Fragment, Web API, Loading, and WebDriver.

The current ‌Safari Technology Preview‌ release is built on the Safari 16 update and it includes support for feature coming in macOS Ventura such as Live Text, Passkeys, Web Extension improvements, and more.

The new build of ‌Safari Technology Preview‌ is compatible with machines running macOS 13 Ventura, unlike prior versions of ‌Safari Technology Preview‌, but it no longer works with macOS Big Sur.

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.

When are they going to fix the one where Safari temporarily refuses to load webpages for no reason while every other browser on the computer is completely fine?

Yeah Safari needs to hurry up and get good ha. Chromium stuff is about to take a dump with the new manifest issues and every other fork of it like Brave feels like a crypto/data miner. Reddit is going bananas over Firefox again until people realize there’s a reason we all left when Chrome came out. Meanwhile on Safari I can’t even get photos to load on the Nike website with two brand new machines (I have a thread on it) and Nike is an Apple Pay 3%’er.

Google maps is really choppy when zooming in and out.. is there any way to tweak the rendering capabilities of Safari?
It was all herky jerky in Maps on my Android yesterday. Maybe a Google server thing?

I did a little bit of research and tried it in a Private Window and it worked normally.. extra buttery smooth if you go to Develop>User Agent>Google Chrome - macOS
