Apple today released a new update to Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced in March 2016. Apple designed Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced in future release versions of Safari.
Safari Technology Preview release 162 includes bug fixes and performance improvements to Web Inspector, CSS, Scrolling, Gamepad API, Media, Web API, and Accessibility. This update enables shared tab groups and synchronization for tab groups, site settings, and web extensions, which can be tested on Safari Technology Preview 162 or later running on macOS Ventura 13.2 or later, or macOS Monterey with Safari 16.2.
The current Safari Technology Preview release is version 16.4 and is compatible with machines running macOS Ventura and macOS Monterey.
The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences or System Preferences for anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website.
Apple’s goal with the Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users about their browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser, and although it is designed for developers, it does not require a developer account to download.
