Together with release of macOS Sonoma 14 Apple also releases Safari for previous macOS releases – Ventura and Monterey. This brings new Safari features including Profiles, Locked Private Browsing and others. It also updates WebKit to the same level as new macOS Sonoma.
Safari 17 introduces new features, even faster performance, and improved security.
- Profiles keep your browsing separate for topics like work and personal, separating your history, cookies, extensions, Tab Groups, and Favorites
- Enhanced Private Browsing locks your private browsing windows when you’re not using them, blocks known trackers from loading, and removes identifying tracking from URLs
- Streamlined search offers more relevant, faster, and easier-to-read results
- Multiple tab selection allows you to select multiple tabs at once and move them around the tab bar or create a Tab Group
Some features may not be available for all regions, or on all Apple devices.
Safari 17 is available as software update in System Settings.
