    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 86 includes bug fixes and performance improvements for JavaScript, Web Assembly, WebRTC, Web API, CSS, Security, Experimental Web Shading Language, WebGPU, and Web Inspector.

    The new Safari Technology Preview update is available for both macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina, the newest version of the Mac operating system that was introduced at the June Worldwide Developers Conference.

    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.

    Hmm... I only got 492.

    (Vs. 476 in Safari 12.1.1).

    People still use Safari. I've been using it less and less because of the standard web sites it won't open, like Wikipedia.

    What are you talking about?!? Wikipedia works perfectly fine in Safari (and Safari Technology Preview).

    This usually occurs due to incorrectly configured or missing SSL certificates.

    Delete the following file via terminal:
    Code:
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.security.plist
    Relaunch Safari and it will then fetch new certificates when connecting to HTTPS enabled sites.

    Safari won't open link, pop over to Firefox and bang, it opens immediately. Don't remember the exact URL, but this is the 4th or 5th time this week with different URLs. Safari says something about insecure or whatever and never gives me a chance to say, "I know and it's OK!" More Apple nannyisms.

    Can't do that on an iPad.

    1. This thread is about Safari Technology Preview for Mac, not iPad...

    2. If the the link tries to use the https:// protocol with a missing or misconfigured certificate on its server, it could be as simple as (manually) removing the s from the protocol, using http:// might do the trick. If not then you may basically try the the same thing as suggested above, though on the iPad you need to go to Settings > Safari and Clear History and Website data (or if you want to do it for one specific site: Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website data and swipe left on the site(s) you want to purge).
