Apple released today Safari Technology Preview 126, its experimental browser first introduced in 2016. With this update, users can have a sneak peek at upcoming web technologies coming to macOS and iOS.
With Safari Technology Preview, some of the features announced with macOS Monterey and iOS 15 last week are available to users that are not necessarily running beta versions of upcoming operating systems.
For example, Safari Technology Preview 126 introduces:
- Streamlined tab bar: Use Tab Groups to save and organize your tabs. Experience the new design. Test your site. Experiment with theme color.
- Live Text: Select and interact with text in images on the web in macOS Monterey betas on M1 Macs.
- Improved Safari Web Extensions: Try out the support for
declarativeNetRequest, which expanded to 150K content blocking rules and non-persistent background pages for improved performance.
- Quick Notes: Add links and Safari highlights to remember important information or ideas on the web in macOS Monterey betas.
- WebGL 2: Try out the improved 3D graphics performance of WebGL running on top of Metal via ANGLE.
