Why Doesn’t Apple Safari Work on Important Web Sites?

A certain major news site is unusable in Apple Safari on macOS unless Javascript is disabled. But Javascript is pretty much indispensible on most all sites, so that is not really a solution. I’ve tried everything I can think of. It’s remarkable that a major site would give up traffic by such bad design.

But maybe it’s more than that—maybe it’s Apple. A really important site to me for the past 8 weeks is PurpleAir.com, due to all the forest fires and hazardous smoke. But when I click through to the map at PurpleAir.com, all I get is a blank page in Apple Safari.

One workaround that sometimes works if I go to the map page directly is that I get "Failed to initialize WebGL” and I can then click on Use alternate map. So generally I am forced to use Google Chrome.

Below, today is a good day for us at AQI 56 or so... last week was 4-5 horrible days confined inside at a hazardous AQI of 180 or so.
