I have added an announcement web App, to SP2013 my team site, and for the App part Ajax option I enabled the following:-

  • Enable Asynchronous Update
  • Show Manual Refresh Button
  • Enable Asynchronous Automatic Refresh
  • Automatic Refreshing Interval (seconds) = 60.

But on Safari after 60 seconds or when the user manually clicks on the “Refresh” button, the current web page will do a full reload and not an asynchronous reload. While on IE, FireFox and Chrome they will do asynchronous reload. can anyone advice ?

On Technet you can find the Plan browser support in SharePoint 2013

The first paragraph says: SharePoint 2013 supports several commonly used web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari. However, certain web browsers could cause some SharePoint 2013 functionality to be downgraded, limited, or available only through alternative steps.
