    Could you please share the progress in Safari 12 and 13 certification? In our organization, a huge part of users work on Mac, so it is really important for us to have the modern versions of Safari worked with Oracle Forms. There also SR 3-22820985761 raised, to indicate the importance of this issue for us.

    Hello Artyom -
    We are continuing to investigate options to enable the use of JWS on Safari given the non support of NPAPI plugins (and thus Java) in the browser starting with Safari 12. There are a number of issues around usability, security, etc. that prevents the certification of JWS on Safari which we hope to enable when we have solutions. In the meantime, we recommend the use of Firefox ESR for EBS on macOS.
    We understand your concerns, and thank you for your feedback.
