Apple’s Safari team asks users to share issues to improve web experience on the browser

Apple Evangelist on the Web Developer Experience team for Safari & @Webkit, Jen Simmons has asked users to share bugs or other issues they experience on Safari. In a Tweet, she mentioned that people are calling the browser “the worst, it’s the new IE” and that has prompted her to get their feedback and work to resolve those issues

Safari is Apple’s native browser available across devices but users’ experience is marred by the browser’s bugs and website compatibility. In iOS 15.3, iPadOS 15.3, and macOS Monterey 12.2 updates, the tech company released the fix for the Safari bug which leaked users’ data.

Share unpatched “specific bugs” and missing support with the Apple Safari team

Apple introduced several design changes on its native browser at WWDC 21 but after facing criticism the company reverted to the old Safari tab design. Having said that, the redesigned compact tab design survived which was heavily criticized for its poor consideration for usability.

Apparently, that was not enough. A considerable number of complaints, in which Simmons was tagged, highlighted Safari issues and gained her attention. Now, she has asked for users to give feedback on” specific bugs and missing support” so that issues can be resolved. She also wrote that unpatched bugs which are several years old should be reported to bugs.webkit.org link or feedbackassitantApple.com.

The iOS 15.4 beta included new additions to Safari like web notifications, PWA improvements, WebXR support, media and WebRTC additions, web performance improvements, and more. Since Apple did not officially announce new features for the browser, they can be found as experimental features. macOS 12.2 introduced scrolling improvements in the browser on MacBook Pro models with 120Hz ProMotion displays.
