If Apple wasn't like freakin Fort knox all the damn time they wouldn't have to worry about it.

The more buggier and newer builds were for developers to check out and fix, not for people like you to play with, yell about the bugginess of the program and send bug reports.
There's a reason why Apple has a developer seed program

Except what about damage control - what if there's a serious problem that causes safari to meddle with the system in a serious way? Now, suddenly, Apple has to deal with all these inexperienced mac users whining about their computers on apple help lines and support pages. Even if Apple said they would not provide any support for these beta versions, it is unrealistic to think that they will not have to deal with a serious problem if it affects mac users on such a large scale.

i tried version 67 too, and it didn't work at all; it quit when I chose New Window from the File menu.
But what was interesting, was that it was half-localized to norwegian (because of my norw. os version). Previous versions have been english only. Lots of "localization string not found", though. Maybe an OS update is needed before it works properly.
Also, it broke my favorites in safari 64, i think it moved them to another folder named something else in norwegian. god knows what.

I don't know why some people are so upset about this. Apple didn't say there wouldn't be any more public betas, just no more seeds to developers. Kinda sucks from a developer standpoint, but Apple had no other choice.
