I looked and couldn't find the d/l link for Safari Technology Preview for Catalina that I was given here previously. I want to add it to my older Mac. Anybody know where I can find it?

Thanks.

Hi Joe: I found that link myself but it doesn't include Catalina.

How about this link

The search argument I used is
Code
Catalina safari technology preview
and the search engine DuckDuckGo.com

I found this link from an older Artie post but when I looked at it it's only 77 mb when the original STP for Catalina was 312 mb. Would it be the same thing? Why would it be less mbs?

I went back to MacUpdate and the link for Catalina was 77mb but they also had a link for 103 mb. I guess I will use that one. :confused:

STP catalina from MacUpdate
  • I have a personal prejudice against downloading anything from a software aggregator such as MacUpdate. I know Artie and others use them all the time, but I also know that it is possible to get more than you bargained for. Therfore, if at all possible I get my downloads either from the developer's web site or the App Store.
  • The currently supported version of Safari Technology Preview is Release 134 (Safari 15.4, WebKit 17613.1.6.1)
  • I downloaded the MacUpdate version from the link you provided, and it turned out to be a 103.3 MB compressed disk Image installer file while STP Release 134 for Monterey directly from Apple is 111.3 MB. I don't know where you got either the 77 MB or 312 MB download sizes but one looks suspiciously low and the very suspiciously high.
  • From the release notes, it appears Apple has withdrawn STP for Catalina and folded any changes into Safari in Apple Security Release 2021-007 Catalina

Yes, I can't find it anywhere but MacUpdate, and I am downloading it now. I have had that exact one with all the megabytes in my newer Mac for awhile now and no real problems that I can detect. Thanks for your help.

Update: Since MacUpdate began offering to either run safety scans on d/l's or allow them to precede unscanned I've taken to clicking through to developers' websites and d/l'ing directly from there rather than agonizing over a decision to exercise either option. It's faster than the former and at least as safe if not safer than the latter, and it doesn't make the process recognizably longer.

I will say, however, that in close to 20 years of d/l'ing from MU I never once ran into a problem with any app I d/l'ed from there.

I still prefer to link to MU for FTM purposes, though, because the comments often provide perspective that can't be gotten from dev's websites.

I downloaded the STP for Catalina on MacJUpdate and when it was done it said I needed Mac OS 11.0 (Big Sur) to open it. That doesn't make any sense since I only have Catalina on my other Mac and it opened just fine. I removed the original dmg from my other Mac or I would have attempted to AirDrop it onto my old Mac and go from there.

I just d/l'ed STP via this link at Download Safari Technology Preview for Mac | MacUpdate, and while I didn't complete the installation, I got to the last step with no problems in Catalina 10.15.7. (The d/l'ed .dmg is 84.7 MB.)

Hi Artie: When I went to look at the imgur pic, I didn't see the same page as it shows there with a list of a lot of blue links. I couldn't see the url very well and when I tried to enlarge it, the screen went gray. I rechecked on the link you gave me and copied the url from the Ingur pic,(using a magnifying glass) and only came up with this page which is for 11.0. Imgur Link to MacUpdate which is the same as your second link in your post. I hope that all makes sense but I couldn't get to the page you show in Imgur. I think I saw that page yesterday, but it was only 77mb so I skipped it and went for the larger one which ended up for big Sur. I will try to find that page again and click on that top link like you did and see what happens.

OK, I found that page you showed me and will try it. It is the one that is only 77 mb but we will see what happens. I know Joe is leary of the small size. I am going to airdrop it to my other mac and d/l and see what happens. Thanks.

Well, for some reason it won't Airdrop like yesterday. When I look at MacUpdate it won't show the 77 mb one now either. I give up.

Click on my second, i.e. "Download...," link, expand "What's new...," and click on the top item, i.e. "Safari Technology Preview for macOS Catalina."
