    Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced over two years 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 71 includes bug fixes and feature improvements in a number of areas, including the most substantial tweaks to Dark Mode in several months.

    The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for both macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave, the newest version of the Mac operating system that was released to the public in September.

    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.

    What does this mean? Darker websites when dark mode is enabled? Dealing with white backgrounds all over the web?

    Dark mode is my favorite thing about this new OS. More support within apps would be great!

    Doesn't really matter. I don't even remember a single feature that I need desperately from Chrome and wish Safari Support. Don't believe those Safari is the new IE FUD.

    I always get the message "Test has failed: operation insecure" when doing the HTML5 test on Safari TP, any idea how to get past this?
