Number of bugs and performance issues have been resolved in Safari Technology Preview 149


Apple has published a new version of Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser first unveiled by the company in March 2016. Apple created the Safari Technology Preview to evaluate potential additions to future releases of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 149 includes security, WebAuthn, Web API, and rendering performance enhancements. This version also includes bug fixes and performance improvements for Web Inspector and Media.

The most recent release of Safari Technology Preview is based on the Safari 16 upgrade, and it contains support for features that will be included in macOS Ventura. These features include Live Text, Passkeys, and improvements to Web Extensions, amongst others.

Like previous versions of Safari Technology Preview, the current release of Safari Technology Preview works on machines running macOS 13 Ventura, but it no longer works on machines running macOS Big Sur.

Anyone who has the Safari browser installed can get the Technology Preview update by using the Software Update feature in System Preferences. The full release notes for the upgrade may be found on the Safari Technology Preview site.

The purpose of Apple’s Safari Technology Preview is to solicit feedback on the company’s browser development process from third-party developers as well as end users. Although it was created with developers in mind, downloading Safari Technology Preview does not require a developer account, even though it can coexist with the standard Safari browser.
