And while developers wait for the second developer beta to get seeded, Apple has seen fit to release Safari 10’s beta for OS X El Capitan and Yosemite in the meantime. For developers this means that they’ll be able to try out the upcoming version of Safari on machines that aren’t running the pre-release software, which should help with with development concerns moving forward.
There are a plethora of features that each operating system’s developers can try out in Safari 10’s beta for their respective platforms, but some features are still tied to macOS Sierra and won’t be available. That includes picture-in-picture support, and using Apple Pay on some websites within the browser to buy products.
As far as what’s included, developers will find that they can test out Safari Extensions, Site-specific zoom, improvements to the Reader functionality, legacy plug-in support and HTML5 plug-ins, Spotlight Suggestions within Top Hits, Debugging using the Web Inspector, and more.
Developers can find out the full list of what’s available through the source link below.
Safari 10 will be available for public beta testers through the macOS Sierra public beta test, which will begin in July. The public release will happen this fall.[via Apple Developers]
