            Bug ID: 167521
           Summary: Cross-origin redirects with preflight should be
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 10
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Platform

In August 2016, the Fetch spec was updated [1] to allow cross-origin HTTP redirects, even w/ preflight requests.  All major browsers except Safari and Firefox have implemented the change.  This is preventing users of Shaka Player from using HTTP redirects for load balancing [2].  Media applications that do this kind of load balancing currently cannot be run in Safari.

To reproduce, simply load the repro page [3] in Safari and wait a few seconds for the request to fire.  You should see "OK, status = 200", indicating that the cross-origin redirect was followed.  In Safari, you see "FAILED", indicating that the redirect was not allowed by the browser.
