Interestingly the purple button pulsates as well.

Is this style of recessed button (not necessarily in purple) a sign of things to come from the UI?




I just snapped this from the latest version of Safari.

Where did you get yours?

A simple keyboard shortcut for switching tabs, like Option + Tab or Control + Tab, something you can use with one hand without breaking it.

Shift + Option + Command + Arrows does need two hands.

And mouse gestures without an external solution would be fine.

And Option + K for using the Search bar (google or inquisitor) would be good, Opera and FF use it.


Dreaming on....

The latest version of Safari, the one discussed in this article.

Anyway in Safari you can use command shift ] or [ to switch tabs and it's easy enough with one hand. And while this isn't the ideal solution, command l and tab will take you right to the search bar.

Sebastian

Thanks for the Cmd + L and the tab tip, but the other one doesn't work for me, as I don't have "] or [" on my keyboard.

Is anyone else have a problem with opening new tabs in Safari? The screen is empty blank rather than showing the home page which it is set to? Any idea on how to correct- I never had this before the last update.
Thanks.

This one, but in new aluminum fashion. And the appropriate german layout.

On the windows side those brackets could be written by pressing "Alt Gr + 8 or 9" I think.

I'd like a feature that probably isn't possible ... The ability to totally emulate Internet Explorer as if running within Windows and all that Active X crap when needed (as in 'go into DUMB MODE'). Then I could ditch Windows totally which my wife has to use to access sites that refuse to work unless using winblows and IE (That would be the Realtor's Florida MLS in my wife's case). Please don't tell me MLS works in Canada or elsewhere on a Mac with Safari, I believe it, but it sure as hell doesn't in Florida grrrrrr.

I haven't used SS in a while. I checked and Bookdog is the successor. The current one is supposed to work with 10.4 and 10.5.

That's changing though. Even IE 8 works with standards much better than earlier versions.

As FF, Safari, and others gain greater marketshare, site owners must accommodate them or lose substantial business.

I prefer the Aqua on purple. The colors don't clash at all, and they differentiate. I really DON"T like the idea of purple on purple.

But then, I don't like grey on grey either.

It's Active X that causes most of the problems. Sites are slowly abandoning it. I wouldn't want to extend its use.

a feature I really wish safari had that firefox does is "command+enter" to add "http:www." +".com" in the location bar.

I also agree "control+tab" tab switching would be nice too.

Safari does this automatically -- type "apple" (no quotes) in the address bar and hit return and it will change it to http://www.apple.com/. Type "apple/getamac/ads" and it goes to http://www.apple.com/getamac/ads/.

Probably I missed it, but is Safari 4 going to be released with 10.5.5? And why this thread is not in Mac OS? It is about 10.5.5 and Safari is only part of the news at the end.

Thanks.

Safari>Preferences>Tabs

Check Select tabs and windows as they are created To have new tabs or windows open in front of the one you’re currently viewing, select this checkbox.

It has always been there as far as I can remember. See HELP or Click the '?' mark at the bottom of the preference pane to see other explanations:

If you haven't already, try emulating IE by selecting IE in the Develop | User Agent menu. You'll probably lose some functionality but not much.

I'm often amused by how much functionality Safari has in IE-only web sites. You just have to trick the site into thinking you're using Internet Exploiter.

Perhaps this is more of hint that Apple are going to kill Aqua than anything else. Not sure about purple on purple, but the idea of Aqua being dead is beautiful.

The Green demon has this seed.

Blue on blue? Better?

Obviously on the real thing the "Cancel" button would be a tad more prominent, but you get the idea. The point of this is its color, i.e. it's not purple.

After all these were purple (and orange) at one stage, before they went to blue:

I would either change professions or move to another state before I would use Microsoft software.

4.0 is snappy. It's most definitely noticeable.

Well it is Beta. Though I agree, I ditched it right away. Even my new site looks odd on it, and it's not a website bug, it's a browser bug.

With one post I've concern you work for iCab, but I'll try it nonetheless, I last tried it 2 years ago lol.

Update: I tried it, I prefer Safari, and found it just as fast.

Well I ve downgraded to Safari 4 1st Review,

post #69 of 71
Hi Comunity,

I am testing now the second edition of safari 4

and I found out that the reason why safari crashs every time in my case is the

"Saft" PlugIn.

I ve tryed to delete it and look what happend and now I am using safari about 24 Hours without crashing...

maybe that was the problem....

PithHelmet doesn t make any problems...

You shouldn't use plug-ins with betas without test first. Thats an old rule. You try them one at a time, only AFTER you know the beta is stable without them.

That's the point of beta TESTING. Betas are not intended for everyday use.
post #71 of 71
Yea thats why I got back to the Safari 4 (5526.11.2) where all my plugIns worked perfectly

and its quiet faster than Safari 3.1.2
