Not every macOS user knows that the Safari browser has a hidden menu “Development“. In this article we will talk about the features of this section.

What is the Development menu for Safari on Mac?
First of all, this menu will be useful for web developers who need access to the code, various options for displaying pages, disabling content, and so on. There are also some useful features for ordinary users.
From this menu, you can quickly launch the current page in any other browser installed on your Mac. Very convenient if Safari cannot play any multimedia content. For example, if you want to watch a VR movie (for virtual reality glasses), then Google Chrome is much better for this purpose.
Also useful is the function of clearing or disabling the cache. And sometimes there is a need to turn off the display of images, extensions, styles, scripts, etc.
Web designers themselves will understand the tools of the menu “Development“, But I would also like to note the possibility of launch Responsive Design Modes. It displays the quality of website page optimization depending on which device it will be running on and with what resolution.
