Apple today released the third developer beta of Safari 10 for OS X Yosemite and OS X El Capitan users, allowing those who don't yet want to install the macOS Sierra operating system to test out the upcoming Safari update.

The third Safari 10 beta for Yosemite and El Capitan can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who installed the first two Safari 10 betas.

As in previous betas, Safari 10 for Yosemite and El Capitan does not include all of the features that are available or will be available in macOS Sierra, like Apple Pay on the web and Picture in Picture support, but the Safari 10 functions listed below are available.

- Safari Extensions
- New Bookmarks sidebar, including double-click to focus in on a folder
- Redesigned Bookmarks and History views
- Site-specific zoom
- Improved AutoFill from your Contacts card
- Reader improvements
- HTML5 and legacy Plug-ins
- Allow reopening of recently closed tabs
- Back closing spawned tabs
- Improved ranking of Frequently Visited Sites
- Web Inspector Timelines Tab
- Debugging using Web Inspector

With OS X El Capitan, Safari 10 also supports the development of Safari App Extensions, allowing developers to start creating extensions that will eventually be sold through the Mac App Store. Also unique to El Capitan is Spotlight suggestions for Top Hits.

Safari 10 will be released this fall alongside macOS Sierra.

Literally no one cares about this

I take it you're not a Safari user. You view it the same way the rest of us viewed Internet Explorer for millennia.

Safari happens to be my preferred browser, but I use it alongside Firefox, Chrome, Brave, and occasionally Opera. Who says that one must use one and only one browser? I use them like app-wrappers, each purposed differently.

Is there a way for people without developer accounts to try out Safari 10 on El Capitan?

Yeah: https://developer.apple.com/safari/download/
By the way, developer accounts are free to make. It only costs money to subscribe to a developer program. Most downloads don't require a subscription to a dev program. Off the top of my head, iOS betas are the only big things that do require it. OS X betas used to, not anymore.

The version number on this is Safari 9.1.2, the same as the Safari I already have.

Why would Apple test what's supposed to be a major upgrade to Safari under the same version number?
Perhaps you don't actually have the beta?

According to my unofficial count Apple has had 389 Betas on their software this year.
That count does not include betas that were pulled for bricking devices.
Can't wait for the Apple car betas.

Does anyone know if BBC iPlayer HTML5 player works with this? (Doesn't work on current version)

I use Safari as my main browser, it isn't ideal but uses much cpu time (therefore power) than any other browser. I doubt that this v10 will work with iPlayer HTML 5 player as I suspect the BBC have their own particular way of doing it.

I'd suspect they greenlight certain browsers to work on their player. I doubt it's a technical issue.

Why do you say that? I use Safari exclusively on my Mac, my iPhone, and iPad. I am very interested in the updates they are developing and testing.

Some people complain if new updates and features are made by Apple - and when they do - they still complain.

Fascinating.
