Apple has been very consistent with their macOS platform since its launch. Just like Windows, the macOS platform also comes with its own default web browser, and it is none other than, Safari.

The Safari web browser has been built specifically for macOS and iOS devices, and while there was a time where the Safari browser was available for Windows PCs, it has since been removed, and today, if you want to use the Safari browser, you need to have a macOS or iOS device compulsorily.

Let’s take a look at the Safari browser and what it offers to its user base.

Number 1. Intelligent Tracking Protection

Have you ever faced a situation where you were looking up smartphones, and then you start seeing smartphone ads on every website you visit after?

Thanks to intelligent tracking protection, the Safari browser uses machine learning to identify advertisers and others who track your online behavior and removes the cross?site tracking data they leave behind.

To take this a step further, the browser also prevents interaction buttons such as the ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons from tracking you and invading your browsing session with incessant ads.

Number 2. Built-In Protection for Websites

There are many websites on the internet that are designed to cause malicious damage to the web browser, and in extension, your PC, but with the Safari browser, this threat is absolutely nullified, as the browser treats every web page as a separate process.

This means that if there is a malicious web page, the tab can simply be closed. The rest of the browser is kept safe and secure.

Number 3. Stream to your heart’s content 

The Safari browser is optimized for the Mac, which means, streaming content on this browser is a lot easier and optimized, compared to other browsers in the market.

The browser plays HTML5 content whenever it is detected on a web page. For those of you who don’t know, HTML5 is the format used by all streaming services for their content. The fact that the Safari browser can play this automatically means that you can browse longer and enjoy a more immersive experience with your favorite content.

All in all, the Safari web browser is for macOS, which Chrome has been for Windows. The browser is safe, secure, fast, and very reliable.

If you want to try out the Safari browser for yourself, well, the only way is to go and get yourself a macOS or an iOS device.
