Apple Introduces Safari Tech Preview 167 Featuring Enhanced Performance

Apple recently unveiled a new update for its experimental browser, Safari Technology Preview, which the company initially introduced in March 2016. Safari Technology Preview was specifically designed to test potential features for future Safari releases.

The latest Safari Technology Preview, Release 167, brings a variety of performance enhancements and bug fixes targeting Web Inspector, CSS, JavaScript, WebAssembly, Media, Popover, Rendering, Web API, Accessibility, MathML, and SVG.

The present version of Safari Technology Preview is 16.4, compatible with both macOS Ventura and macOS Monterey devices.

Users who have already downloaded the browser can access the Safari Technology Preview update through the Software Update mechanism within System Preferences or System Settings. Comprehensive release notes for the update can be found on the Safari Technology Preview website.

Apple’s primary objective with Safari Technology Preview is to collect valuable feedback from developers and users regarding its browser development process.

Safari Technology Preview can operate alongside the existing Safari browser, and while it is tailored for developers, even those without a developer account are able to download it.
