Create new blank Safari windows with Command-T Web Browsers
If you have *no* windows open (except perhaps the Downloads and/or Activity Windows), pressing Command-T will open a new, blank Window (without loading your home page). Command-T with a browsing window open creates a new, blank tab, of course. The difference between using Command-T and Command-N to open a new Safari window are:
  • Command-N opens a window and immediately loads your specified Home page.
  • Command-T opens a window/tab that is blank.
NOTE: FWIW, you might wonder how this works when using virtual desktops? Inquiring minds may want to know, and if you don't know or care, the following can be ignored: I tried switching from a virtual desktop #1 (with Safari windows open), to virtual desktop #2 (with no Safari windows open), then pressed Cmd-T, but it opened a new tab in one of the existing windows on virtual desktop #1. I had to switch back to virtual desktop #1 to see my new tab. This was under DesktopManager. YMMV!

Command-L does the same thing as Command-T.

Create new blank Safari windows with Command-T

I create new blank Safari windows all the time by pressing Command + N.

Under preferences, you can set Safari to open new windows as empty pages.

To visit my home page, I just hit Command + Shift + H with just my left hand.

I don't really understand why this is a hint, unless of course somebody hasn't fiddled with the Safari prefs yet.

Good point, however I generally *want* my new windows to load my home page. This hint was specifically for people who have 'New windows open with:' set to [Home Page] (which I believe is the default)... but want to open a new 'blank' window without having it load the 'home' page.
