Apple has improved Safari Technology Preview 140 and made it available for testing. You can install the new version not only on macOS Big Sur but also on the Monterey operation system. The tech giant improved performance for different elements in this release, along with bug fixing. Among them are:

  • interpolation for web animation;

  • web inspector's elements, sources, and timeline tabs;

  • canvas functions for web API;

  • Javascript's date functions; 

  • WebAssembly's misc issues;

  • different support functions for CSS;

  • support for new lines HTML.

Via Safari Technology Preview, Apple wants to get the users' and experts' opinions about the quality of Safari development. You can use both the testing and the main browser versions. Moreover, you don't need to create an account, as the developers do: any user can utilize this browser.

You need to download it, open "System Preferences," and use the corresponding software function for updates. You also have the opportunity to see the complete fixes and adds' list on the official website of Safari Technology Preview.

The company even corrected a severe bug in the iOS version. Previously, some iPhones could record user interactions with Siri, including situations when people didn't enable that function. The problem was first found in iOS 15, where the "Improve Siri & Dictation" element was allowed automatically, granting the company consent to track users' dialogues with Siri. When the bug was found, Apple disabled the option in the next update.
