The JavaScrip for this Latest Safari is crap on my 2010 Mac Pro. Every few Hours Safari starts using up to 800% of my CPU and completely slows-down my Computer. I have to quit Safari and restart, and then I get relatively lower CPU Readings (Average, these days is 250%).

I love this Browser. The complaints about not being able to use "CRUCIAL extensions" is a bit misleading because many of those have been replaced by as good or better alternatives. Yes, if you insist on using the "CRUCIAL extensions" of the past several mainstream user sites show you how to use them if you insist and with minimal effort.

Safari has the satellite-site It joins and switched off only safari. To see it it is possible: safari-preference-websites-reader. To remove it it is impossible anything. In a computer it is not present, there is with Safari. Apple too undertakes nothing. Finishes that, as safari it is impossible to remove. More shortly, you want a headache - load safari. Be protected this bad browser.

"Purchase now"??? No such thing. The link to 'Purchase' Safari simply goes to Apple's Safari info page. If you for some reason actually want Safari 13, you get it from the "Software Update" System Preferences pane, if your Mac supports it. - - Meanwhile, I personally recommend NOT updating to Safari 13 specifically due to Apple destroying the ability to use CRUCIAL Safari Extensions with full capability. These include the illustrious uBlock Origin extension. It's developer is fed up with Apple and abandoned updating his extension for Safari 13. Hobbled is AdBlock Plus such that its blocking blacklist ability is gone. Users of 1Password are forced to pay for version 7 in order to simply continue using its Safari extension. AdGuard is gone! The DuckDuckGo Private Search extension is gone! SessionRestore is gone! What is available as Safari 13 extensions is an odd list of 'Who's This?' obscure odds and ends, lots of payware and various hobbled junk (IMHO). Safari 13 is an Apple FAILure. If you can manage to keep or restore Safari 12, I highly recommend doing so. And note that I work daily with Mac security, and I'm saying that! Shameful.
