    Is the second public beta for Sierra stable enough to install on a main iMac?

    It broke a lot of elements in safari for me, for example twitch no longer works.

    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.

    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.

    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.
