Apple is giving Safari users a sneak peek at the upcoming web technologies for its browser in macOS and iOS. Just this Wednesday, the Cupertino giant released the fifteenth Safari Technology Preview update for macOS Sierra and OS X El Capitan.
Safari Technology Preview is mainly designed to give users a chance to test out certain features that will be introduced in future versions of Apple’s Safari browser. The experimental browser was launched just this past March.
Based on Apple’s note about Safari Technology Preview, macOS and iOS users can experiment with the technologies it is working on for websites and extensions via the experimental browser. The Cupertino giant also uses this browser as a platform where it can collect feedback from developers and users about the web technologies it is creating for future updates and releases.
Safari Technology Preview 15 is expected to come with bug fixes and updates for Safari’s WebDriver implementation, since Apple promised to include these starting with the fourteenth release of the experimental browser.
The fifteenth release of Safari Technology Preview is available for download via the Software Update option found in the Mac App Store. For macOS Sierra users, the required OS version is macOS v.10.12, while for OS X El Capitan users, their device should run OS X v.10.11.6.
Even though the Safari Technology Preview is designed mainly for developers, general users can test out this browser readily because it does not require a developer account. Also, it can be run alongside the real Safari browser.
