Dated April 20th, v13.2 (105) may already have been downloaded and installed on your Mac. Apparently, its late posting here is MU catching up. - - For me, the Technology Preview series has been a way for me to keep Safari v12.1.2 (which has far superior extensions available, including the must-have brilliant uBlock Origin (whose developer gave up on Apple when Safari 13 was foisted upon us), while being able to play around with Safari 13.x. - - The awful, abysmal extension selection for v13.x remains its profound failing, yet another clobberingly stupid Apple Bungle, so common over the last 4 years. /rant

Is this a multilingual application? If YES, I will try it. If NO, I continue to use Safari.

The only thing I haven't got is how to uninstall? I still have some artifacts in my Trash, which can't be removed during a permission problem.

The description at the top of the MacUpdate page says this is also available for MacOS Sierra (10.12) but if you go to Apple's website it only provides links for 10.13 and 10.14. The download link on MacUpdate for 10.12 is for release 49 and it hasn't been updated in pretty much a year now.

And now we're at v73! Again, until Apple get their lagging butts in gear, it is HIGHLY recommended to use Safari Technology Preview and NOT regular Safari due to a published exploit present in ALL of version 12.0.x. These latest betas have solved the exploit. Why Apple hasn't formally updated Safari is beyond comprehension. I'm starting to think of the word 'irresponsible' at this point.

Safari Technology Preview is now at v72 (aka compiled Safari v12.1 beta, WebKit 14607.1.17.1). It is highly recommended over regular Safari v12.0.2 as it includes a critical security hole patch.

IMPORTANT! Release 71 (Safari 12.1, WebKit 14607.1.15) is the current version of Safari Technology Preview as of December 5, 2018. This version is particularly important because all previous versions of Safari 12 (up through 12.0.2) have a vulnerability currently called "WebKit-RegEx-Exploit", for which a PoC, Proof of Concept, has been published. IOW: If you demand maximum Safari security, you MUST upgrade to this current version of Safari/WebKit. More about the exploit is published here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/webkit-vulnerability-affects-latest-versions-of-apple-safari/ The page providing the most current Safari Technology Preview is: https://developer.apple.com/safari/download/

This latest Version has lost the Keyboard Commands. Didn't remember the Previous Session. Pages take forever to Open. This is as bad as MS Office 2016.

There seems to be an issue with the bookmark drop down menu. maybe it's how it's being drawn, maybe not. but the app freezes anytime I try the bookmark menu. No issues with any other Safari or browser. Can't use it as it is now.

Release 27 just came out (April 6, 2017) and on my two systems it fixes the spinning beachball and super-high CPU usage problems that made Release 26 unusable.
