Apple launches Safari 14 with new features ahead of macOS Big Sur

A few days ago, Apple released its latest iOS 14 with a plethora of features. While iPhone and iPad got the latest OS update, MacBook users are still waiting for their goodies to arrive.

Well, Apple has greeted its anxious users with a piece of good news. The latest version of the Safari browser has been released for macOS Catalina and High Sierra.

The latest update comes with tons of new features and customization options. Apple has improved the browser’s tabs and has included a new privacy report feature. Users get new customization options for their start page.
