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.

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>

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!

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.

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 ...

Safari is very keen to cache these icons, and indeed the lack of them. Once it has decided there is (or is not) an icon on your site, it will retain that knowledge, potentially for a very long time, and no amount of restarting or refreshing will change that. You can encourage it to re-check for icons by deleting the contents of the following folder: ~/...

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.

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

(Developers have an option to avoid this ...
