Safari is a default web browser on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. It is one of the secure web browsers to use on your Apple devices. Unlike Google Chrome, Safari browsers don’t have built-in cast support to mirror the browser on Chromecast. Hence, you need to mirror your Mac on Chromecast with the help of the Chrome browser before casting the Safari browser. You need to use the third-party screen mirroring app on iPhone and iPad.
