Safari 14 for MacOS Catalina & Mojave Released
Apple has released Safari 14.0 for users of MacOS Catalina and MacOS Mojave. Safari 14 is also the version of Safari that comes bundled with macOS Big Sur, though Big Sur has yet to be released and remains in beta development.
Safari 14 includes a redesigned tab bar and a customizable start page, the removal of Adobe Flash support, a Privacy Report feature that focuses on cross-site tracking, along with various other improvements and security enhancements.
Mac users can download Safari 14 for MacOS Mojave and MacOS Catalina by going to the Software Update function on their computer via the Apple menu > System Preferences > Software Update.
Even though the update is only for a web browser, it’s still a good idea to backup the Mac before proceeding with the installation for Safari 14.
