Apple today released another update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced in March. Apple designed the Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future release versions of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 10 includes bug fixes and updates for JavaScript, web APIs, Apple Pay, Apple Pay, Web Inspector, MathML, rendering, accessibility, and security. As of release 8, Safari Technology Preview has supported Apple Pay in the web browser, a feature set to launch as part of macOS Sierra.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Versions are available for developers running both macOS Sierra and OS X El Capitan. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website.

Apple's goal with Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users on its browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can be run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser and while aimed at developers, it does not require a developer account to download.

Isn't webRTC potentially a security hole for VPN use though? I vaguely remember that being an issue for Chrome use via VPN.

webRTC for P2P connections - the thing I'm most bothered about is supported on Chrome (desktop and Android), Android browser, Opera, upcoming version of Edge, Firefox & Opera. Just not Safari. I'm not aware of any inherent danger to using webRTC for VPN, I'd need to check it out.

You reckon that's why Apple have been lax about it?

I have no idea if that's the reason Apple hasn't put it in but I seem to recall webRTC being exploited to reveal true IP addresses of users on VPN. Just to be clear, not that the users were leveraging webRTC to create the VPN connection but the fact that webRTC would then reveal true IP as part of the peer to peer connection process became an exploit. I'm thinking back the better part of a year though so maybe I'm not remembering correctly or the exploit has since been patched.

Can it launch in less then a minute and a half or load a standard page in less than 40 seconds?

I miss Snow Leopard.

Web inspector not showing pixel dimension tooltip on inspected elements, "kinda" useful for devs? Horizontal side tab management still bugged, won't slide to last one to the right when 20/30+ tabs are open, after 10 releases this hasn't even improved the slightest, clear priorities. Congrats to all devs who contributed feedback for this:
  • Added support for new emoji group candidates
If you keep breaking stuff which each release no wonder it'll be snappier.
