[HOT] : “Classic” tabs are back in Safari 15.1 for macOS Big Sur

MacOS Big Sur users who are fed up with the new Safari 15 interface can take their breath away: they can now download the final version 15.1 of the web browser, the one that restores the classic tabs.

This is not a surprise, Apple having released a beta of Safari 15.1 last week. But now, everyone on Big Sur can once again resume “normal” browsing, away from the compact tab system that Apple has tried, in vain, to impose.

Rest assured, it is still possible to surf with the Compact tab layout, offered as an option in the preferences. Those who have upgraded to macOS Monterey (12.0.1) already have Safari 15.1.
