Apple's Web browser.

Overview

Apple Safari is Apple's web browser that comes bundled with the most recent macOS. Safari is faster and more energy efficient than other browsers, so sites are more responsive and your notebook battery lasts longer between charges. Built-in privacy features are stronger than ever. It works with iCloud to let you browse seamlessly across all your devices. And it gives you great ways to find and share your favorites. Put it all together, and no other browser offers such a rich web experience.

Safari for Mac has a condensed and minimalistic interface that offers mac users faster, private browsing with fewer interruptions and extended battery life.

When you download Safari for Mac you will get enhanced protection against invasive malicious software and customizable private browsing options to protect your information.

While browsing privately in Safari, pages that you visit in private mode will not appear in your browsing history list.

The Safari browser uses fewer system resources and allows extended browsing times while iCloud allows you to sync all your web activity seamlessly across devices.

A vast library of extensions available to enhance usability and productivity in the workplace or at home.

The extension holocaust continues, making it suck. Apple claim to have made it easy for the legions of extension makers they locked out with stupid Safari 13 to update their software to work with Safari 14. We shall see. For now, the extensions available for Safari 14 remain abysmal. - - Litmus test: If uBlock Origin ever returns, I'll relent my hatred of what Apple has done to Safari.

Caution. Online many people say that 1) Safari now refuses to allow any uploads and 2) has destroyed the webloc icon images. Perhaps the result of fixing the very bad memory leak from 14.0?
