Combine open Safari windows into one tabbed window Apps
I've always wished Safari could force all windows to open up in tabs. But when I wake up from my web surfing and look around, I mananage to have more than one Safari window open. I've heard SafariStand and Saft will correct this ... but I have my doubts, and so came up with my own solution.

I've written this AppleScript that takes all Safari windows, and opens them up in one window in different tabs. Enjoy!

Combine open Safari windows into one tabbed window
Authored by: rspress on Feb 06, '07 08:20:16AM
I use a automator action called "Open Webpages in tabs" along with the get specified URL's action to make my own automator action that opens the web pages I want into tabs. One set I use this for is to enter contests everyday. Since these contests run for a month or more it is worth the easy work to set this up the first time. I save the action as an application on my desktop so a quick double-click and I am filling out forms!

You can download the "open in webpages in tabs" action at the apple automator site, http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/automator or at Automator World, http://www.automatorworld.com

Why would you doubt it, didn't you bother to check?
I use SafariStand & it works fine.

I use Saft to achieve this with very little effort indeed.

All windows open in tabs - including any pop-ups which I have allowed - and on the rare occasion that a new window is created, there is a simple key combination to merge all tabs across the two windows back onto one window instead.

I'm using Saft and I like it, but I wasn't aware it could merge several open windows into one tabbed window. Which key stroke is that? I'm very curious! I can't find it in Saft preferences...

Command-Option C. You'll find it in the Window menu of Safari.

"Merge all windows"

What's wrong with Safari's built-in "Merge All Windows" menu command? (Under "Window"

(Answer: The command probably wasn't present when the tip was posted. Sorry, I missed the post date when I first answered.)
