For quick access using a mouse, be sure to go into Preferences, Advanced, and check the 'Show Develop menu in menu bar'. Then, select 'show menu bar' from the gear menu (if you haven't already). The 'Develop' menu now appears and has lots of options for you!

Well, Webkit (the rendering engine behind Safari) is really fast and supports the latest standards. I would use Google Chrome though as it shares a large part of its codebase (including Webkit) with Safari but it is more suitable for Windows. Safari looks really out of place in a Windows environment in my opinion.

In Safari's preferences under "General" at the bottom is an item that says: Open links from applications: in a new window or in a new tab in the current window Make sure the radio button beside new tab in a current window is selected.

Here's one way: Install Google Notifier for Mac Open Mail.app, go to Preferences -> General, and set "Default email reader" to Google Notifier.app. (Yes, you need to set this in Mail even if you don't want to use Mail...) Works great for me. And in general I can vouch for Google Notifier too. It's a nice little app that adds an icon (like this: ) in ...

Hit Alt+F to bring up the file menu, and you should then see Print Preview as your 12th option. (I do). It's a bit unfortunate that they don't make it easier to find!

Alternatively to blocking animated images you can simply disable animation. Open about:config in Firefox and set image.animation_mode to once or none

You can edit your Firefox profile's userChrome.css or use the Stylish add-on to define the following CSS rule: #tabbrowser-tabs { font-size: ... !important; } Where ... is replaced with a valid font-size value. Example: #tabbrowser-tabs { font-size: 20px !important; } Video Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAhzZuhN61E PS: If you want ...

As the other sources (and comments here) have said, clicking OK isn't enough to cause trouble. Even if they get you to download the MacKeeper installer, you still cannot be forced to actually install the software. But if you really don't want to even click OK, there are a few ways out. Here's one: Quit (or force quit if necessary) Safari In the Finder, ...

Click the magnifying glass symbol in the search input field and select Contains. By default, it's set to Starts With.

It is neither necessary nor sufficient to uninstall the Adobe Reader. I went also through this process and finally succeeded by (re)moving /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin. More information can be found here.

The only way that I know of that allows for selecting a specific folder for each file download is by holding control and clicking the link. A menu appears and select 'Download Linked File As ...' I was told that you may be able to setup something known as 'Folder Actions' which allows you to create a script for certain file extensions and once the file is ...

Safari's client certificates and related preferences are stored in Keychain Manager with a kind of certificate. When you select a certificate to use with a web site, it stores another entry in the Keychain Manager with a kind of identity preference. Unfortunately, by default it stores it only for the exact page you were on. Both the name and location are ...

Starting Safari with arguments isn't supported or documented, AFAIK. It's interpreting the first argument as a path (you'll notice that if you begin it with a /, it doesn't prepend the working directory). If you just want Safari to navigate to a URL, use open: open -a Safari <url>

AdBlock plus can block all Flash animation, but as far as I know it can't distinguish between animated and static gifs. The filter to block Flash would be http://ad.uk.doubleclick.net/*.swf (for example). You'll need to train AdBlock for all the different ad sites.

If you pay attention to the status bar while hovering the link, you'll see that it initially points to the "clean" URL. Only when you click on the link (with any of the three mouse buttons), a JavaScript event gets triggered that changes the link's destination to Google's URL redirection. To verify my claim, just right-click any of the purple links and ...

You can drag the magnifying glass icon on the location bar to a plain text view: Or run prompt("",location.href) in the JavaScript console or run tell application "Safari" to URL of document 1 in AppleScript Editor.

Both use webkit, but don't live and die by that. We have seen many errors\behaviors that only occur in safari. Use browserstack or sauce labs. They have emulators\virtual desktops that can recreate your issues. I'm here because 6.0+ changed the way it handles injected tags like IE 10 did.

Certificate errors often stem from incorrect system dates set. If you've already tried clearing existing certificates from your keychain using Keychain.app, then it's time to open your System Preferences and reset your time and date — ideally automatically.

Here's how to change Safari's general settings to open new URLs in new tabs: http://superuser.com/questions/8859/make-safari-open-new-links-in-existing-windows-as-a-tab-rather-than-a-new-window I don't know if there's a way to do it by specifying an option at the command line. EDIT: If you'd rather not change your Safari preferences for some reason but ...

I don't think you can get Safari to do it, but you can set up a Folder Action on your Downloads folder to set the date(s) of each newly added file.

Choosy is an app for doing exactly this -website here-. It lets you setup advanced behavior rules that can essentially say: "see this url configuration -> open it up in this browser" (see screenshot below). At first glance it looks like the rules pane is very configurable. There is even a utility for it called (choosy fluid) Get it Here that will detect ...

There you go! Clearing a Specific Cookie on Safari: Safari makes you do a little more mousework to get to the listing of cookies in the system, and you have to specify which you want to remove. To get started, go to the preferences menu, and open the “Security” Options. Partway down the page is a button labeled “Show Cookies.” Click this. Once you ...

Not the fastest way, but in case you cannot solve it: I always hit Cmd-L, Tab. That is: Cmd-L to get to the location bar, and then Tab to go to the search box. If you happen to be in a Top Sites view, then hitting Tab twice again gets you to Search History.
