Is the second public beta for Sierra stable enough to install on a main iMac?
If you have a backup, yes.
It broke a lot of elements in safari for me, for example twitch no longer works.
Apple's Notes app crashes every time I start it as well. 2015 MacBook Pro 15" Retina
It's incredibly slow for me at the moment, but I just installed it. Hopefully that'll clear up soon.
Safari is unusable if you have more than 20+ tabs open.
And I don’t mean just the Safari process that can be force quit. The entire system locks up.
Yeah I had this happen with only about 12 tabs open.
None of any bugs listed above happen to me
Experienced a slow reboot after update to pb2, it back to normal, not much change since the pb1 for me, safari quite smoother with 20+ tabs

Public Beta 2 uses 8 GB of ram even with no app open on my iMac, I reverted to PB1.
Public Beta 2 has locked me out. Accepts my password but doesn't log in and returns me to the login screen.
Beta 2 is a memory hog. I have 2 memory cleaners installed. My standby app does almost nothing while the other one, Dr. Cleaner Elite, works about every 2 or 3 attempts.
I'm still getting a phantom window when I open itunes and minimize it.
If you intend to test all new features: I think not. The problems that I found with an earlier build are still evident with 16A254g.
It did not clear up. At all.
Even simple things like highlighting text seems like a taxing thing in this beta. It acts like every app I want to open is Crysis 2 or something. Notes.app for instance shouldn't take nearly a minute to load.
Last beta was great. This one... eh.
Mostly, there will be some minor compatibility issues.
@tedson public beta 2 is now outdated. For comments on the more recent build 16A270f please see topics such as:
