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

    Safari Technology Preview release 45 includes bug fixes and feature improvements for Rendering, JavaScript, CSS, Web API, Media, Web Inspector, and Accessibility.

    The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store 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.

    Can you show/tell me everything you have ticked in the Develop dropdown menu?

    Perhaps some of the features are hardware-dependent?

    But 15" MacBooks have better CPUs and video cards.

    For what it's worth, I also get 464 with all Develop > Experimental Features checked. Mac Pro (Late 2013), dual D700.

    Why not use the "save results" and share the link so we can compare the differences?

    Could this really be the reason?

    Here's mine html5te.st/dd500c3a4f145d01

    For what it's worth, I have all these unticked too:

    Service Workers (under Web Applications) for me on HTML5 test is off, despite being ticked in my settings

    Same with Web Payments

    This is what is causing the discrepancy. How the hell do I fix that when everything is ticked?

    Could be location specific. Apple may have limited the payment api if you are not in a region where Apple Pay is implemented. For Service workers, maybe a bug that make it not working.

    I've deleted Safari Tech Preview in the past and reinstalled it, and all the Experimental Features were still ticked. Is there a cache file somewhere I can delete to start it from scratch and choose those settings again?

    I've tried unticking and ticking again in my current STP and that doesn't help HTML5test detect them.

    Probably there are files in your ~/Library folder where they are stored.

    Deleted as many STP caches as I could find, still 464 on a fresh install of it.

    No idea what the 'issue' is or whether it simply should be like that on my machine?
