Apple on Tuesday released Safari 15 for macOS Big Sur and macOS Catalina, which includes support for features that will be coming to the Mac in the macOS 12 Monterey update set for release later this year.
Safari 15 brings a new look for Safari with redesigned tabs, transparency support, and much more:
Safari 15 delivers faster performance, improved security, and the following new features:
• Tab Groups help you save and organize your tabs and easily access them across devices
• Redesigned tabs have a rounder and more defined appearance and take on the color of the webpage
• Compact tab bar option shows more of your web page on screen
• HTTPS upgrade automatically switches sites from HTTP to more secure HTTPS when available

Apple has not yet announced when macOS Monterey will be released, but it is expected to be released in October alongside new Macs, likely at a Mac-centric media event.
