Since IOS 11, you can activate experimental options in Safari and run different applications and controls. The options are intended primarily for web developers and are mainly related to WebKit tools from Apple.
For example, using the experimental features, developers can detect errors in their websites or activate or disable additional tools. As a regular user, you will probably not be able to use or need these experimental options.
Activate the experimental options in Safari
- Open Settings
- Navigate to Safari
- Tap Advanced
- Open the Experimental Features
You can then enable or disable the options you want, such as the choice between Constant Properties, CSS Spring animations, Link preload, viewport Fit, Web animations and Web GPU.
In the previous versions of IOS, some of these advanced features were already included, such as the Web Inspector.
Link preload is an experimental feature which will speed up iOS 11 Safari considerably.
