Safari 15 for Mac is now available for users running macOS Big Sur or Catalina. It brings with a new design and changes for tabs.

The updated web brower introduces support for some features that are going to be part of the forthcoming macOS Monterey.  It includes Tab Groups, which are meant to help users organize tabs more easily access them across devices. The tabs themselves have been redesigned to be rounder and more defined. They also change to match the color of the web page. There is a compact tab bar option, letting users see more of a web page.

Texas Restaurant Owner Explains No-Mask Policy After Asking Family To Leave

MacRumors 21 September, 2021 - 12:26pm

Something they say they don’t do often as new parents.

“If you’ve ever been new parents, having those couple of hours out like once or twice a month is so important for your mental health,” Wester said.

They’re fully vaccinated, but say they choose to mask up when out to protect their immunocompromised four-month-old son.

But once inside, they were told they had to take them off.

“Our waitress came over, sat down next to me and said, ‘Our manager told me to come over because I am nicer than he is… But this is political and I need you to take your masks off.’”

It’s a policy you don’t hear often amid the pandemic, but the owner says he considers it part of the dress code.

“I have spent my money on the business, my blood sweat and tears in this business, and I don’t want masks in here,” Tom, the owner of Hang Time, said.

He says it’s a private business and he has every right to refuse service to those who want to wear their mask.

“I feel the overall reaction with masks is ridiculous in the United States right now,” Tom said.

There’s no sign, instead the hostess tells everyone who wears one that they must take them off at the door.

“So when they put their masks on the other night, they were reminded that at the front to take it off. They didn’t want to, and so we asked them to leave,” the owner continued.

He said he was unaware of her immune compromised son, but that it’s a rule they believe strongly in and will continue to enforce.

Apple releases redesigned Safari 15 with Tab Groups, better performance | AppleInsider

On Monday, Apple released Safari 15, bringing new macOS Monterey features and design changes to current versions of Apple's Mac operating systems.

The Safari 15 update can be installed on Macs running macOS Big Sur or macOS Catalina. It introduces faster performance, improved security, and several new features that will debut on macOS Monterey when it's released later in 2021.

The updates include Tab Groups, which lets users save and organize tabs into specific groups. Apple has also redesigned tabs to be rounder and more defined, and to take on the color of the webpage a user is currently on.

Safari 15 also introduces the option to switch to a "compact tab bar," which shows more of the webpage on a screen. This specific tab design was supposed to be the default, but proved confusing and controversial for some users. In Safari 15, it's still an option.

Additionally, the new version of Safari will also automatically switch sites from the less-secure HTTP to HTTPS whenever possible.

Users can download Safari 15 by heading to System Preferences and selecting Software Update. The update is relatively small, and doesn't require a restart.

It isn't clear when Apple will release macOS Monterey to the public, though it could debut the software update after a Mac-focused event unveiling 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models later in 2021.

Love the new changes, although watch out on some websites. Safari's adopting of the color of website to be used on the tab bar and toolbar makes for a very loud (brightly colored) experience. The BBC's website, for example, is one very red surfing experience.  :D

How do you tun off the feature of the tool bar adopting website color? 

A newly discovered bug in all versions of macOS, including the latest macOS Big Sur, allows attackers to run arbitrary code remotely with the help of files embedded in emails.

SharePlay has returned for the iOS 15.1 and macOS Monterey betas, meaning the feature could see release in the next major update.

Apple has reached the seventh beta for macOS Monterey, in what could be one of the last builds before its release to end users.

Apple has reached the seventh beta for macOS Monterey, in what could be one of the last builds before its release to end users.

After successfully launching iOS 15 earlier this week, Apple is out with the first betas of iOS 15.1. We take you hands on with the new features expected to launch with these new updates later this fall.

Alongside the as-yet unreleased Apple Watch Series 7, Apple also released a refreshed lineup of Apple Watch bands. We go hands on with them to check them out.

Apple's supremely soft leather cases have once again been updated for the latest batch of iPhones. Ahead of the iPhone 13 release, we go hands-on with all the new colors.

In this week's episode of "This Week in Apple," we talk about Apple's iPhone 13 event, which phone may be most popular, and what other Apple products we may be seeing soon.

With iPhone 13 now available to order, we go hands-on with Apple's official first-party silicone case options for its newest smartphone.

You might have wanted more, especially from iPadOS 15, but what we've got with it and iOS 15 is a combination of refinements and new features that make this a particularly compelling upgrade.

The ReST Smart Bed is a fully adjustable mattress that uses a bevy of sensors to give you the most comfortable night sleep and is paired with iPhone connectivity for granular control.

The Satechi Aluminum Stand & Hub combines a compact stand with a handful of ports to achieve a minimalist iPad Pro desk setup.

One of Apple's most touted features on iPhone 12 — MagSafe — finally makes its way to iPhone 11 thanks to Moment's new premium cases.

Nomad's tempered glass screen protector is designed for the iPhone 12 with minimal bells and whistles, but nails the core functionality.
