    Experimental Webkit Features in Safari?
    Do I need to have any of the options turned on in Experimental Webkit Features in Safari. Do they use any of the storage on my iPhone? I'm not a developer so if I turn them off will my Safari experience improve?

    If you are not a developer, there is absolutely NO reason for you to be messing with experimental features of any application.

    I guess what I'm asking is are the features necessary for Safari to run? And if I turn them all off will that impact the way Safari works?

    Ahh, thanks for the clarification. Not the experimental features are not required for Safari to run. They are provided for developers of extensions to make sure they are compatible with upcoming updates to the browser. A little bit like beta testing a few feature before rolling it out. A few of the experimental features enable some very developer-specific functionality to be able to debug your webapp within Safari. So not actually dealing with Safari itself, if I'm writing a web application and want extra info, I have to enable experimental features to get to the web inspector, console and so on.

    Your Mac's Specs
    iMac, i7 4GHz, 32GB memory, 1TB Blade, OS X.14.2 Mojave,
    No and none. Ashwin would not have replied NO in capitals.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thank you. I'll leave them alone then. Just trying to free up some storage on my iPhone.

    To free up storage, you need to look at removing unused applications. Moving your photos/videos/music off the device and also take a look at your application data for each of your apps. If you go to Settings->Storage (or something like that), you will see where all the storage is going.
