You also need a rather recent version of Safari; best is to use the 
latest, most recent stable version of Safari (right now: 10.0.1 on Mac 
OS X 10.12).

If I may, I would like to add:

- many tests (possibly a majority) have not been reviewed
- a few tests need work, need adjustments, tunings, need improvements of 
various kinds, are not streamlined
- a few tests are incorrect: eg
[css-backgrounds-3] background-size-035 to reconsider, to revisit
