Inclusion of details about releases only available under NDA[edit]

The article currently contains details about pre-release "seed" builds of Safari. It links to connect.apple.com as a source for information about this build. The page containing this information states:

Warning: Pre–release software is Apple confidential information. Your unauthorized distribution of pre–release software or disclosure of information relating to pre–release software (including the posting of screen shots) may subject you to both civil and criminal liability and result in immediate termination of your ADC Membership.

Providing information about each pre-release build is also of highly questionable valuable.

Apple Safari and third-party tracking[edit]

According to the Apple web site, Safari has third-party cookie blocking by default: "The web pages you visit often leave cookies from third-party websites....Safari was the first browser to block these cookies by default. And by default it also prevents third-party websites from leaving data in your cache, local storage, or databases." This seems to be an important web privacy issue that would be relevant to this article. Does anyone have Safari documentation that explains how this works, or a source that covers how Safari's third-party tracking policies are different from those of other browsers?

Criticism[edit]

So, this article criticising the current state of development of Safari made its round through several tech news sites. There was also a follow up. Is this notable and/or valid enough to be added to the article? 177.142.180.230 (talk) 02:46, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it is notable and should be added. 208.73.81.66 (talk) 14:45, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

iPad 2010[edit]

There's no mention of the introduction of the iPad and the fact that it came with Safari pre-installed. Akld guy (talk) 02:37, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Mobile features[edit]

It would be useful to know when access to various mobile hardware features was introduced (e.g. camera, microphone, file upload, GPS, push notifications). -- Beland (talk) 18:27, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
