Install for Upgrades to Safari

If you skipped macOS Big Sur 11.2.2, macOS Big Sur 11.2.1, macOS Big Sur 11.2, and macOS Big Sur 11.1, macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 will allow you to use the Ecosia search engine option in Safari. If you think you might want to use Ecosia, download macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 today.

If you're still on macOS Catalina or an older version of macOS, note that macOS Big Sur brings some essential upgrades to the company's Safari browser. If you're a heavy Safari user, you'll probably want to install the new operating system in the near future. 

The new operating system includes a variety of changes including a customizable start page where you can set a background image and select new sections to display on the start page.

You can see more tabs at once thanks to a redesign, you can get website previews by holding the pointer over a tab, you can translate entire web pages in Safari, and you can even import passwords and settings from Chrome for the first time.

Apple's made speed improvements. The company says Safari now loads frequently visited sites 50 percent faster on average than Google's Chrome browser. 

The company also says Safari is now optimized specifically for Mac which means it should be more efficient than other browsers.

Apple says you can now stream video for up to one and a half hours longer and browse the web for up to one hour longer on a Mac compared with Chrome or Firefox.

    Big Sur is terrible. My computer runs so much slower I’m ready to throw it out the window. Don’t download this program.

    cannot maintain connectivity of screen share. One or both of us lose screen control. constant disconnects and frequent reboots. covid forced at-home business is getting impossible with Big Sur.

    I have a brand new 2019 MacBook Pro and my partner has a fairly new 2016 MacBook Pro. We were doing just fine on Catalina then switched to Big Sur and everything went to hell…we gave it a week to settle in with all of its syncing and updating stuff but then found that performance issues and bugs like entire system shut downs and black screen and spinning wheels started happening… this is supposed to be the best hardware we can buy and yet hampered by Big Sur and its issues is causing us to rethink going back to Catalina.

    I have a MacBook Pro 2016. Big Sur automatically updated and as a result I can no longer use the MBP as a clam when connected to my BenQ 2700 monitor that I need for photo editing. When I try to log into my MBP in clam mode the screen goes blank after about 10 seconds and says it is not receiving a signal. Seriously! This latest update was supposed to sort a few things out for 2019/20 MBP …. not f**k a 2016 model… Unbelievable. Thanks Apple..

    Big Sur update 11.2.1 and now 11.2.2 will not update on my iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2019) It seems to download but when installing i get a error message that there is a problem with my internet connection.

    I have updated my MacBook Air late 2020 to 11.2.3.
    Can’t really see any difference. Since I bought the
    new MacBook the only problem I’ve had (which is very
    annoying) is that the auto login option is greyed out
    and I cannot disable the automatic login. In Library/
    Preferences the com.apple.autologin etc. is missing.
    Surprisingly enough I installed MacOs Catalina on my
    old MacBook Air mid 2012 and it works perfectly.
