Matt Birchler: ‘What I Like About the New Safari’

I completely agree with Matt Birchler’s list of genuine improvements made to the new version of Safari in iOS 15. I will even add to it: on some websites — like Defector and Wikipedia — the way that the theme-color status bar blends into the page header looks fantastic on the iPhone, and Tab Groups are a welcome addition. I also appreciate that some of the most glaring complaints about the first build, such as the “⋯” button, have been corrected. But there is still so far to go, particularly for the iPad and Mac versions.
