Open multiple web pages with one click in Safari Beta 2 Web Browsers
You know how Command-Click opens a link in a new tab in Safari Beta 2? Well, I just stumbled on this: If you have a folder full of links in your Bookmarks Bar, Command-Clicking on the folder will immediatley open all the links in the folder in their own tabs within one window. I just opened 20 sites in one click! Now to create a quick-access folder to make good use of this feature.

how is this a hint? This is what they demonstrate in a video on
the Safari webpage at apple.com. They show this when showing
people what tabs are.

How is that a question? The answer to it is right here in the
FAQ of this site.

Open multiple web pages with one click in Safari Beta 2
Authored by: grrr223 on Apr 15, '03 02:08:38PM

I didn't think this was worth being posted as a hint, but one nice
thing is that the titles of the Tabs stay whatever you called them
in the bookmark.

Before people start flaming me, I'll explain:

I go to a lot of websites, i.e. http://www.allmusic.com, that put
the name of the website first, and then the title of the page
after it, so I end up with 10 tabs that all say "All Music Guide..."
which is almost useless. BUT if you change the name of the
bookmarks, then they will stay whatever you want them to be.

THE REASON THIS ISN'T OBVIOUS is because when you drag a
bookmark to a folder it's name becomes the title of the page, so
I had just assumed it went with the title of the page it got when
it loaded. Sorry, I know we're not on slashdot, but I hope I just
elmiminated most inane posts (like the first response in this
thread), it always amazes me that people have enough time to
complain that a hint didn't help them out at all.

I have to say that this is a great example of good UI. Cmd-
clicking a link opens a new tab, cmd-clicking a folder should
open all the things in tabs. The first time I did it, I did it without
knowing it existed; I just expected it to work subconsciously,
and I was completely unsurprised that it did for a second or two,
until I reallized "Hey, that's really well done." GJ Apple.

Open multiple web pages with one click in Safari Beta 2

I'm actually kind of unhappy with this feature, I would prefer it to be more like Camino, where you can set up either a folder or a tabbed group (tabbed group opens with just a click).

I like and dislike the group tabbed feature in Camino. I often
browse the web trying to waste time and opening multiple pages
in multiple tabs get things done too quickly. Safari sort of
simulates this feature with this tip but you can do it easier if you
drag a folder to the toolbar and now in that toolbar folder you'll
see an added "Open in Tabs" which opens all in the links in
seperate tabs. It's such a great timesaver I might get
productive!

You can also open the Bookmarks window and control-click (or
right-click) on any bookmark folder to bring up a context menu
with an "Open in Tabs" item to run on that folder. There doesn't
appear to be any one-click method for doing that like with the
Bookmark Bar.

The missing feature
Authored by: SOX on Apr 15, '03 07:28:02PM

Oddly, this feature causes another feature to be missing.
consider the folowing
1) cmd-clicking a link causes it to open in a new tab
2) cmd clicking a bookmark folder opens all the items in tabs

but you cant cmd-click any single item within a folder. it does
not work.

The missing feature -- Exactly
Authored by: ebow on Apr 16, '03 10:32:49AM

I would like that functionality, too. Does anyone know a way to make achieve this behavior? I'm betting the closest we'll get is hitting cmd-T and then going to the bookmarks bar menu. Hmph.

The missing feature -- Further
Authored by: theRegent on Apr 16, '03 07:38:32PM

The "Open in Tabs" feature also doesn't work if you have folders
nested on the bookmark bar. Seems odd that Apple wouldn't make
the feature simply be present for any folder on the bar.

I HATE THIS "FEATURE"
Authored by: gralem on Apr 16, '03 01:12:44PM

The hint I want is one that FIXES this thing. It's actually a great
idea. The problem with this is that when you command-click the
folder, ALL EXISTING TABS ARE DELETED!!!

If I have 10 tabs of various sites showing, and I want to show an
additional 5 bookmarks I keep in a folder, I want to see *15*
tabs across the top. Instead, I get 5 tabs and lose everything I
might have been working on/researching in the original tabs.

IS THERE A WORKAROUND? The only thing I can do is open a
whole new window. Then cmd-click the folder. Then I have one
safari window with 10 tabs and a second window with 5 tabs. IS
THERE A BETTER WAY?
