Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced 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 159 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for WebAssembly, JavaScript, and Rendering.

The current Safari Technology Preview release is version 16.4 and is compatible with machines running macOS Ventura and macOS Monterey.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences or System Settings 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.

This update also doesn't seem to fix disappearing tabs when dragging them to another window or pulling them out of the current window.

I use Safari Tech Preview as my main browser due to more capability with websites vs production Safari and I actually get updates.

That seriously is not a problem, so yah it is fixed and never was a problem. At least on Ventura Beta.

I still won't use Safari. Adblockers don't work with it like they do on Chrome and Firefox.
