Some thoughts

Safari is a big part of macOS appeal, so you might want to use it instead of Chrome or Firefox. macOS Big Sur adds a lot of customization options to Safari to help you get the most out of using the browser.

When you have to stare for hours at a screen, it’s natural to want something bright and appealing for your desktop wallpaper. With macOS Mojave, the Safari browser comes with some amazing image collections or brings a fine selection of famous artwork or nature pictures that you can use as your background.

From the new wallpapers collection in macOS Mojave, there are some really compelling images of ocean life, nature scenery, while some others have patterns of geometric shapes. To add a new background picture to the Safari browser on your Mac, there are more options than ever before. You can also add your own clicked photos or family images to the safari start page background.

Safari is one of the best reason why people buy Mac computers. The software’s impeccable performance, insights, and above-the-rest security have made it a must-have for iPhones, iPads, iPod touch, Apple TV, and even other Mac computers. With highly secured browsing features, Safari has won the heart of millions worldwide.
