    Apple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced three 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 74 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for the Fetch API, Web Animations, Web Authentication, WebRTC, Media, CSS, Web API, Service Workers, JavaScript, Accessibility, Web Inspector, WebDriver, Storage, and Security.

    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.

    It says Safari 12.2, so I guess the next upcoming version of Mojave (10.14.4) will have Safari 12.1 included, hopefully with the Dark Mode support.

    yeah the last couple have been sort of freezing in that they stop responding to mouse clicks. also a lot of the dev experimental features tend to break things and it is hard to know which ones are causing it. but even with all of them turned off it is still less stable then regular safari.

    It's not an iOS app, it's for macOS.

    on https://developer.apple.com/safari/download/, It says

    "Safari Technology Preview
    Get a sneak peek at upcoming web technologies in macOS and iOS with Safari Technology Preview and experiment with these technologies in your websites and extensions."

    So was wondering if it's possible to test this on Iphone.

    Anyone else having the problem where after a few page clicks it randomly stops responding to mouse clicks entirely until you restart it? Not sure if it is due to a 'experimental feature' I have on or not but it is really annoying. Happens maybe once every 15 minutes of use and seems to be encouraged by going to a webpage and clicking back.

    Yeah I have the exact same problem. But for me it doesn't matter if I use the Safari beta of the stable one.
    It's really strange, every time I surf the internet after a sudden time the whole tab just freezes. When I try to refresh the page it takes a while and if I then press refresh again it will force reload the page.
