Last week was poor in major web industry news, but rich in software releases. In browser news, we got Firefox 107 and Safari Technology Preview 158. The release radar spotted some really big targets: TypeScript 4.9, Angular v15, Nuxt 3, Deno 1.28, and more. And the resources for this issue are a mix of icons, color tools, and typography utilities.
Firefox 107 just rolled out. This update is mostly about patching security issues, bug fixes, under-the-hood fine-tuning, and making it easier to debug WebExtensions in the DevTools.
Safari users can now check more upcoming features with Safari Technology Preview 158. This update adds support for new CSS features (such as
contain-intrinsic-size), AVIF image decoding on macOS, default WebCodecs, and more.
