Apple has re-released Safari 14.1 for macOS 10.15 Catalina and 10.14 Mojave with fixes for two additional WebKit vulnerabilities, on top of the three vulnerabilities fixed in the initial 26 April 2021 release. (That release broke WebAuthn, causing Apple to pull the download quickly.) Safari 14.1 also enables you to customize the Start Page section order, supports an additional WebExtensions API that enables developers to offer extensions that replace the new tab page, introduces the Web Speech API to enable developers to incorporate speech recognition into Web pages, and adds support for the WebM and Vorbis video and audio formats. You can download Safari 14.1 only via Software Update. (Free, release notes, macOS 10.15+ and 10.14+)
