Is it safe to install outdated Safari on Windows 10/11?
No. We do not recommend installing an outdated version of Safari or any software on your computer. For the best experience, always use the latest version. Besides security, the outdated Safari cannot compete with current versions of web browsers. In addition, it lacks several features available in modern browsers.
Instead, we recommend using browsers like Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Firefox.
