    save / bookmark your tabs because the upgrade will close all your open tabs, with no ability to auto-recover them, not even from a backup. I went as far as apple l2 support and it’s an omission by design.
    I had bookmarks for all but maybe 4 or 5 that I’d intended to follow up on for research but they’re long opened and will be an intensive search to get back to them.

    Does this mean OS Monterey is kaput… no more?
    what a shame!
    Monterey was the probably the last real  OS designed specifically for a computer as Ventura and Somona has their flaws and lacks personality.
