Safari 8 might have had a few problems in OS X Yosemite 10.10 thanks to it being a beta, although with each update you’d expect things to get better and not worse. Our in-house developer has been testing both iOS 8 betas and Yosemite since its first beta launch. Sadly, they report the new OS X Yosemite update titled “Preview 7” seems to have gone backwards with Safari 8 crashing and issues with their Apple Air mouse losing connection a lot.
We’ve included the current iMac specs that our developer is using while experiencing these Safari 8 issues in the OS X 10.10 beta below. This is useful if you are also having problems like this in the public or developer beta, and of course we could see a pattern within the comments.
Considering we are at preview 7 already, let’s hope the crashing is fixed by a public Yosemite release date that should be towards the end of next month. OS X Mavericks released on October 22, 2013, so we’d expect a similar date for Yosemite OS X 10.10.
If your preview 7 install and Safari 8 web browser is running problem-free, then we’d love to hear that in the comments along with your computer configuration.
Have you had any crashing or freezing problems with Safari 8 in OS X 10.10 Yosemite preview 7? While betas are expected to contain bugs, they shouldn’t get worse or bring new major bugs in the later stages and when we’re so close to a release date.
