Safari gets major privacy updates and the ability to put web apps in your dock
Safari might not be the most exciting part of macOS, but Apple isn't giving its web browser the cold shoulder. The latest version includes a number of useful improvements, including better privacy controls, encryption features, and the ability to create "apps" from any web page. 

The splashiest feature might be the new web apps. This puts a website in your dock, just like any other app and opens it with a minimal interface that helps mask the fact that you're just using a webpage in a browser. If this sounds similar, that's because it's almost exactly like shortcuts in Google's Chrome which can also put a link, complete with a favicon in your dock and opens the site in a simple frame with none of the normal browser controls. This helps blur the line between desktop and web apps, which was part of Chrome's whole pitch, especially as it grew into Chrome OS. 

The more important improvements to Safari though, are to privacy and profiles. Now private browsing blocks more trackers and your fingerprints from sites so they can't identify you. You can also now lock private browsing sessions behind your fingerprint, so you can step away from your computer without worrying that someone can sneak a peak while you're shopping for a gift or having to close your session.

Profiles also allow you to separate your browsing by topic or context. So you could, for example, keep all your work tabs in a separate Safari window that has its own cookies, extensions and favorites. Then you can quickly switch to your personal profile to pick up where you left off trolling eBay for deals on vintage cameras. 

Lastly, users will be able to share passwords or groups of passwords through iCloud Keychain with end-to-end encryption. The latest version of Safari will be available later this year as part of

Apple's M2 Ultra chip chases the Hollywood elite

Most people surf the web, play games, and write emails on their laptops and desktops. That's certainly not the market being addressed by the second-generation Mac Studio, a $1,999 desktop that's zeroing in on professional video editors. The Studio ships with either the option of an existing M2 Max chip, or the new M2 Ultra.

Essentially, the M2 Ultra is two M2 Max chips stitched together, with a total of 24 CPU cores and 76 GPU cores. (The M1 Ultra combined two M1 Max dies for 20 CPU cores and a 64-core GPU, spread across more than 100 billion transistors.) All told, Apple claims that the new M2 Ultra chip will deliver 20 percent faster CPU performance than the M1 Ultra, and 30 percent faster GPU performance than the M1 Ultra, as well. With the launch of the Apple Mac Studio and the M2 Ultra, all of Apple's hardware has now switched over to Apple's own silicon, executives said.

Who needs this? Well, in an ideal environment, the chip could be used to train large machine-learning models, using its massive 192GB of addressable memory — 50 percent more than the M1 Ultra. Most environments use GPUs and their high-speed video memory to perform these tasks, but they'd run out of available memory, according to Jennifer Munn, Apple's director of engineering and program management.

Mac Studios, however, will see some real results: DaVinci Resolve users should see video processing times drop by half, and 3D Octane users will be able to render their models three times faster, Apple said. It's also six times faster than an Int
