Safari is a popular browser as it’s very fast, secure, and user-friendly. Safari is also the default browser on Apple products such as Mac, iPad, and iPhone. However, it’s also available on Windows computers and android devices.

Enabling Javascript in Safari may not be necessary, however with Javascript not enabled, some websites you visit may look odd or even broken. This is because Javascript is one of the most popular programming languages across the internet. To enable javascript is a straightforward process and will improve your browsing experience.
