Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced four years ago in March 2016. Apple designed the Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future release versions of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 113 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for Web Inspector, Web Audio, WebRTC, Rendering, Media, CSS, WebDriver, Accessibility, Loading, Web API, Gamepad API, and Translation.

The current Safari Technology Preview release is the built on the new Safari 14 update included in macOS Big Sur with support for Safari Web Extensions imported from other browsers, tab previews, password breach notifications, web authentication with Touch ID, and more.

The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for macOS Catalina and macOS Big Sur, the newest version of the Mac operating system that's set to be released this fall.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website.

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

I keep updating in hopes that things will be much better, but... still having issues with building/maintaining my websites in Wix.com. The pages behind each tab have to constantly be reloaded when I return to them. Very frustrating, very slow, and I keep getting the... this page is using too many resources/energy.

Don’t know about the reloading issue, but the energy consumption might be a wix backend problem? a lot of the time automated tools sometimes brute force things or maybe you might have control on some behaviors like going in idle/low-power mode when the tab loses focus.
Just throwing ideas there, I don’t know much about web dev, but apps and game dev has similarities on that front.
