Apple releases Safari 6 with offline reading for OS X 10.7 Lion - Page 2

post #41 of 48

Not happy with the new tabs or the combined URL/search box either.  One nice thing about the old, orderly every-tab-the-same-size layout was the ability to close, say, three of 5 tabs with three clicks (without a mouse move).  Now you have to hunt for the (invisible) close boxes.  Just inelegant.  Maybe, perhaps, I'll get used to the combined address/search box, but I'm pretty old school and would have preferred to keep them distinct.

 

And I still don't know what that Reader/reading list thing is supposed to be used for.

 

Ah, more evidence that this new tab things is broken: take a look at your window when you have a single table.  Title bar with the name of the page at the top, then a row for the buttons and stuff, a row for the bookmark bar, and then... another row with the title of the page, centered below the title.  Really, we need to titles for the same window?  Lame.

1) If I can get used to them I think anyone can.

2) ⌘T and ⌘W will create and delete new Tabs quickly.

3) Think of Reading List as a short-term bookmark. An usage example might be a long article you want to read but can't right now or it might be something you want to share with someone else later. You may forget about if you just try to remember and sticking in your Bookmarks it could get lost and never found again. It also has the benefit of syncing between all your devices and saving locally so you can read the page offline.

Is it me or is it not possible to view the source code of a page anymore? Right clicking the page doesn't bring up the option as it used to for me.

Hey, who are you to say that you're the worst at adapting to change :-)

 

Thanks for the Readling List explanation.  Maybe I'll try it.  I rarely use bookmarks, I usually just leave the page open in another tab (sometimes for weeks at a time).  Sounds like the reading list would be a better solution.

Right-click > Save Page As... > Page Source.

 

Not exactly the same, but sufficient?

I can easily get used to the new tabs. Never really used the RSS feature, but I'm disappointed to see that functionality go. Regardless, the changes they've made to Safari have really sped it up! It is noticeably MUCH faster than it was.
