Support Safari Technology Preview

Sauce supports many beta / dev browser channels, but not Safari Technology Preview. Currently, Safari TP has a different implementation of several web technologies such as their shadow DOM and webcomponents implementations.

    This would be great, it's the only way to test what has recently been implemented in WebKit and will eventually ship in Safari. We'd love to be able to have results from Safari TP in tooling we're building around web-platform-tests and drive interop between browsers.

    Re-iterating the need for this. We're testing specification adherence and interoperability of browsers at web-platform-tests. We need to also test against future versions (such as Safari TP), and Sauce support would be the most direct way for us to achieve that.

    This would be very helpful for testing on Safari.

    Thank you for your inputs on this. We will evaluate the feature request and get back to you.

    The tech preview has a lot of fixes to the WebDriver that improves the current released version of Safari 10 (tech preview currently at Release 37). https://developer.apple.com/safari/technology-preview/release-notes/

    For example this fix: "Fixed an issue that prevented non-popup windows from being maximized or resized", allows Safari windows to be resized. This functionality is vital in our automated test suite, and thus we required the tech preview to run our automated test suite. The tech preview is not currently available on SauceLabs, and it would be great to have it added in.

    This would be very useful, given Safari's slow release pace

    Just reiterating what others have posted, having this available would be huge and allow WebDriver to properly use dropdown elements in Safari 11 (fixed long ago) https://webkit.org/blog/7989/release-notes-for-safari-technology-preview-41/ or anything else that may be broken for WebDriver that ends up quickly being fixed in a Safari Tech Preview.

    Any update on this?

    It's been in "evaluation" since last summer... it's summer again, now a year later.

    As we are using older javascript technologies, we are relying on testing on canary browsers to be sure our scheduling of upgrades is acheivable. Being able to use a Safari canary as well as the extant firefox and chrome canaries would be very reassuring!

    That would be great to have, as it is currently the only way to work around this bug in the safaridriver:
