      Firefox 83 supports Mac OS Big Sur. Native-compilation is coming.

      For the recently released Apple devices built with Apple Silicon CPUs, you can use Firefox 83 and future releases without any change. This release (83) will support emulation under Apple’s Rosetta 2 that ships with macOS Big Sur. We are working toward Firefox being natively-compiled for these CPUs in a future release.

      Apple Silicon version of Google Chrome now available for download. Currently they are separating Intel and Apple Silicon versions (no Universal app for both yet).

      Update 1: Google has pulled the Apple Silicon-optimized version of Chrome due to “unexpected crashes.” Users that were able to install are advised to follow this workaround to resolve the issue:

      Open System Preferences.
      Navigate to Security & Privacy.
      At the top, select Privacy.
      From the left, select Bluetooth.
      Below your approved applications, select add application (+).

      Nathan, Thank you very much for these lists that are likely to get longer as days, weeks and months go by.

      I would hope, eventually, to see in them some of the items in my own list of things I’ll definitely need to either continue running on my “Intel” MacBook Pro when I move on from Mojave to Big Sur, or else will have to find them suitable replacements:

      All the basic Linux/Unix/macOS tools available in the Terminal line command: vi, grep, cat, cp, mkdir, tee, awk, etc, etc. as well as such utilities as homebrew and macports.

      Office 2016 for Macs

      At least two of these: Vivaldi, Chrome, Waterfox, Firefox

      ClipGrab  (for downloading YouTube videos)

      Calibre (to continue reading from my library of epub and PDF books.)

      Mail

      Preview

      Text

      Malwarebytes

      Webroot SecureAnywhere

      Intel Fortran and C++ compilers (not very likely, but one can only hope.)

       

      Any news, when and if they come out, on any of the above shall be mos appreciated.

      Office will be optimized for Apple Silicon (it will likely be a version different from 2016). Right now the current version still runs good on Rosetta 2.

      Chrome is in the process of being released for Apple Silicon (see above), with Firefox forthcoming.

      Most Terminal commands will already be Apple Silicon optimized on your new Mac. HomeBrew and MacPorts will work on bringing Apple Silicon compatibility.

      Mail, Preview, and TextEdit are already Apple Silicon optimized on those Macs.

      Malwarebytes will likely be before long.

      Webroot may be eventually, although I’m having good experience with Intego and highly recommend it for those who plan to stay current with macOS.

      All of your apps, with the exception of Webroot, should either be optimized for Big Sur on Intel Macs or likely optimized for Big Sur shortly (Webroot would likely take longer). We can start a new thread on Big Sur compatible apps as this one is reserved for Universal/Apple Silicon native apps.

      Nathan. “We can start a new thread on Big Sur compatible apps as this one is reserved for Universal/Apple Silicon native apps.

      Sorry, I did not realize this thread was dedicated to Apple Silicon (a.k.a. Apple M1?)  native application software. My fault.

      Yes, it will be (I think) of considerable interest to people who currently have Intel Macs and, same as myself, do not intend to buy new ones any time soon, to have available also lists like these, dedicated to applications that already may run, or will run by the time they have Big Sur installed in their machines.

      Mac-optimized TensorFlow flexes new M1 and GPU muscles

      A new Mac-optimized fork of machine learning environment TensorFlow posts some major performance increases. Although a big part of that is that until now the GPU wasn’t used for training tasks (!), M1-based devices see even further gains, suggesting a spate of popular workflow optimizations like this one are incoming.

      Announced on both TensorFlow and Apple’s blogs, the improved Mac version shows in the best case more than a 10x improvement in speed for common training tasks….

      Transmit 5.7 is now Apple Silicon ready.

      Also, to answer Oscar’s question further, we can start a list of apps that are updated to support Big Sur, but one quick way you can tell when some (but not all) apps have been updated to support Big Sur is when their icons change. Many apps, when issuing updates for Big Sur, are changing their icons to make the new icon design of Big Sur, in which icons resemble iOS-style icons with rounded corners. So as you see more app icons adopt those designs, you’ll know some of your apps are Big Sur ready.

        Nathan, Thanks for the tip, but my question is about finding out about compatibilities and possible conflicts before migrating with my Intel Mac to Big Sur (and that’s why I’ve thought that starting a separate a thread about Intel Macs moving to Big Sur would be a good idea), in my case with the time for such migration depending on:

        (1) The release of (at least) version 11.1.

        (2) Knowing which of the Intel applications one uses need to be replaced, if any.

        (3) How most others are faring who have transitioned already.

        The answers to (1) and (2) being helpful to get ready for as a smooth an eventual transition as possible, whenever a reliable answer to (3) becomes available.

          You can start a new thread for sure if you wish. In the meantime, here are a few answers to your questions:

          1. We don’t have an ETA on 11.1 yet. I’ll probably upgrade to Big Sur on December 2, so I’ll be upgrading to whatever version is available then.
          2. I’ll need your list of apps (you can post those in a separate thread). What I do know is making sure you gradually update all of your apps to the latest versions is a good idea before upgrading to Big Sur. A couple of days before upgrading to Big Sur, I’ll probably check over most of my apps and do a quick Check for Updates. Two apps I do need to manually apply updates for. Generally when a new version of macOS is released, I periodically check my apps for updates between the release data of the new major version of macOS and the day I upgrade, in which all of my apps are generally updated for support for the major macOS upgrade.
          3. I’ll keep you posted on this from December 2 onward.

          Nathan, Following your suggestion, attached is a text file with the list of what I believe is all the application software now installed in my Mac. I have marked with * those I use often, with ?  those I think I use now and then, but am not sure, and left unmarked those I have no idea of what they are doing there. Of the latter, maybe I need to have all of them, maybe some yes, some no. No idea. This list perhaps include applications many of us have, so it might be more useful than for just helping me.

          All the so called “Utilities” that appear at the end of the list, are needed for me to use the Mac fully, as far as I know.

          These are all 64 bit applications.

          I’ve gone through your list and marked all the apps I know are ready for Big Sur. For Apple apps, I recommend opening the App Store and run Check for Updates to ensure you have the latest versions of them. For non Apple apps, go ahead and run check for updates on those, and those apps will be upgraded to run on Big Sur. I’ve also mentioned apps you’ll either need a paid upgrade to, apps that have been replaced by other apps (mostly Apple apps), and apps I know aren’t optimized for Big Sur. For Webroot, I’d recommend trying a trial of Intego. It’s on a major Black Friday sale coming up, and it’s been solid on my Catalina Mac and fully tested with Big Sur.

          Any apps I wasn’t sure about I didn’t mark ready, but those you can check for Big Sur ready updates.

      What a nice approach by Apple this is. Its so user friendly 🙂

      Apple has gone to great lengths to make sure software works on its new processors. If you use Apple apps such as iMovie, Pages, Keynote, and more, they will work on Apple silicon. Most third-party software, from large corporations or from small developers, will work.

      Nathan, instead of starting a separate thread for applications that run on Intel Macs and are compatible with Big Sur, perhaps two lists, updated now and then, could be included one for Intel and the other for ARM Macs’ compatible applications and also those that need to be replaced with compatible ones, in the tread “KB2000014” dedicated to macOS. As well, also perhaps, as similar lists for the “i” devices. For my part, the two lists for the Macs would be quite enough.

      Microsoft 365 apps are being updated for Apple’s new ARM-powered Macs. These core apps include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook.

      We are excited to announce that starting today we are releasing new versions of many of our Microsoft 365 for Mac apps that run natively on Macs with M1. This means that now our core flagship Office apps—Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote—will run faster and take full advantage of the performance improvements on new Macs, making you even more productive on the latest MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. The new Office apps are Universal, so they will continue to run great on Macs with Intel processors. The apps are not only speedy, but they also look fantastic as they have been redesigned to match the new look of macOS Big Sur. Here is a peek at Outlook on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro.

      If you have automatic updates turned on, you will start to receive these updates today. Otherwise, you can go to the Mac App Store and click the Updates tab, or with Microsoft AutoUpdate, you can go to your Office app’s Help menu and choose Check for Updates. Plus, find more commonly asked questions on our support page…

      Firefox 84 :

      Native support for macOS devices built with Apple Silicon CPUs brings dramatic performance improvements over the non-native build that was shipped in Firefox 83: Firefox launches over 2.5 times faster and web apps are now twice as responsive (per the SpeedoMeter 2.0 test). If you are on a new Apple device, follow these steps to upgrade to the latest Firefox.

      WebRender rolls out to MacOS Big Sur, Windows devices with Intel Gen 6 GPUs, and Intel laptops running Windows 7 and 8. Additionally we’ll ship an accelerated rendering pipeline for Linux/GNOME/X11 users for the first time, ever!

        Google Chrome is, in fact, Universal when you get the “Apple chip” version.

      Nathan, How about QuickTime? Does a compatible universal version that runs also in Intel Macs comes with BigSur and, when going to install BigSur, does one have to delete first the old pre-BigSur version (Mojave’s in my case) of QuickTime already in the Mac?

      I do use QickTime often in my Intel Mac, to watch some movies and the videos of a lot of concerts that I have saved, mostly in mp4 format.

      • #2338589

        Alex: Thanks for your concern.

        I use QuickTime because it works just fine for me and I do not need the extra features offered, for example, by the IINA player. But if I ever need to use a file in a different format that QuickTime does not support, I’ll look into optional applications such as the ones you mention.

        Quick time, so far, has supported all the formats of files I have had need to process with it.

        This article lists all the formats QuickTime supports:

      If you’ve ever needed to record a podcast with other people, you probably know Call Recorder for Skype — which, as the name suggests, is a popular Mac app that lets users record conferences on Skype. Unfortunately, the app is being discontinued and will no longer be updated, mainly affecting users with M1 Macs.

      Call Recorder for Skype is not compatible with Apple’s M1 Macs. Call Recorder for Skype is only compatible with Intel Macs running macOS 10.12 or newer. Call Recorder for Skype will not be updated for compatibility with M1 Macs…

      State of Apple Silicon – half of the most popular Mac apps still need Rosetta

      Two months since the first Apple Silicon Macs shipped — and seven since the Developer Transition Kit — very many of the most popular Mac apps have yet to fully adopt the new technology.

      …what’s bad is that every Mac developer is insisting that their apps can run on the new machines — and then a large proportion of them cough a little before admitting that they don’t mean natively. An Apple Silicon M1 Mac bought today will run all of your current, existing macOS Big Sur software out of the box and that’s as far as some developers hope you’ll ask.

      What you want, and what the best Mac developers have already raced to do, is get native Apple Silicon support. The difference is all the difference. With native support, the apps get all of the power of the new processor.

      Without native support, they’re run in Rosetta 2 emulation…

    • #2341224

      This also happened during the PowerPC to Intel transition. It took a bit to get all apps Universal, and “Rosetta 1” wasn’t even that good at the time. I know a couple of app developers that are waiting for more Apple Silicon Macs to go mainstream before making their apps Universal. It’ll take some time, but by the time the transition is complete, we’ll see far more Universal apps in store.

      Nathan Parker

      • #2341231

        Not entirely clear on this point: What happens, exactly, when application software now in use in Intel Macs becomes also “M1 native” (i.e. no Rosetta is needed), but one still has to use it in one’s Intel Mac? How does this actually work — that is, assuming it does?

        What is going on now? Do  the new versions have code in them to “sense” what kind of CPU, etc. is in use and, depending on that and to do the same things, invoke different sets of subroutines with different system calls in them, one set of subroutines written so they can talk, via the kernel, with Intel’s chipsets, the other, with M1’s? Or do these applications simply no longer run on Intel Macs? Or is this a mixed-bag, where some developers of software so far intended to run on Intel Macs, do not adapt their software to run also on M1 Macs, but actually and in already known cases, make it so it only runs on M1 Macs, leaving us users of Intel Macs high and dry?

          The app is called a “Universal” app since it can run on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs with a single binary (fat binary). The app contains both Intel and Apple Silicon code and chooses which code to execute depending on the processor.

          macOS Big Sur (and all future macOS releases that support Intel Macs) are also Universal for the entire OS.

          The same transition occurred from PowerPC to Intel, plus a similar transition occurred from 32 Bit to 64 Bit.

          Eventually future apps will become “Apple Silicon Only” just as they became “Intel Only” when PowerPC support was dropped, but that’s a while down the road.

          Even then, I’ll still have plenty of uses for my Intel Macs, just as I’ve repurposed my PowerPC Mac.

      I would like to learn a bit about this, if you don’t mind telling me, preferably with an example, of what you are doing with your PowerPC Mac. It should be useful to know that for whenever there are few or no applications still up-to-date and available for my Intel Mac, because most, including those I use today, are then made only for M1 Macs.

      Quite a bit on it, actually.

      • It runs a modern variant of Firefox, so I can browse the web if need be.
      • Mail, Entourage (the predecessor to Outlook) and even the super-old Eudora still connects to my primary email account over IMAP.
      • I have an older version of Office running on it, but it can still open most Office files since it’s docx compatible.
      • I have an older version of iWork running on it, so I can still do some stuff with Pages, Keynote, and Numbers
      • I have a variant of OpenOffice (NeoOffice) that’s a backup from Office in case I need it.
      • One of my school research apps still has an older version that allows me to run some school reference works on it.
      • It’s running an older version of iLife and Final Cut Express and Logic Express if I needed to do some decent media work.
      • Terminal still works.
      • It’s running a variant of ClamAV that still receives definition updates, plus I still have an outbound firewall on it. I also keep it on its own VLAN for extra security.

      My old High Sierra Mac is also still going and able to run modern web browsers, a version of iLife, iWork, Office, and enough apps I’d use. I also use it for running VMs on VirtualBox, running legacy Apple apps that Apple no longer supports (in case I need them for anything), and I’ve thrown macOS Server on there for playing around.

      So there’s no reason to toss out your Intel Mac even when it’s no longer supported. You can still repurpose it and use it until it bites the dust.

      Also “Boom 3D” is now “universal.”

      What this application does is to allow the user to change the frequency response of the built-in speakers sound (plus several external ones, if available, for a “sensurround” stereophonic effect), with a number of different settings, as well as to fine-tune (with sliders) those, by hand, for one’s complete satisfaction. It does wonders for how my MacBook Pro sounds when playing music, or listening to a streaming movie or show. Still not as good as good headphones, but more comfortable if one is going to be listening for a rather long time.

      It is not for free, but quite cheap; it comes with “launch at startup” by default, which is annoying because it puts the big sliders, etc. box on top of everything on the screen, but that can be changed in the “settings” section to “launch on demand”.

        Update on Windows on ARM and Intel apps.

        How x86 emulation works on ARM

        “Emulation for x86 apps makes the rich ecosystem of Win32 apps available on ARM. This provides the user the magical experience of running an existing x86 win32 app without any modifications to the app. The app doesn’t even know that it is running on a Windows on ARM PC, unless it calls specific APIs (IsWoW64Process2).

        The WOW64 layer of Windows 10 allows x86 code to run on the ARM64 version of Windows 10. x86 emulation works by compiling blocks of x86 instructions into ARM64 instructions with optimizations to improve performance. A service caches these translated blocks of code to reduce the overhead of instruction translation and allow for optimization when the code runs again. The caches are produced for each module so that other apps can make use of them on first launch.”

        I think (can’t verify) that the same procedure will happen with Windows running in VM on M1.
