10.7: Full screen Safari Apps
Admittedly, this may be more of an observation than hint. On most full screen apps I use (Reeder for Mac, Mail, the fugly iCal) you don't typically need another window.

I have always had Safari to open new windows as tabs. I think this may now be the default in full screen mode. If you want another full screen invocation of Safari, just hit Command+N.

By extension: each Safari window with its own set of tabs can independently be in full screen mode or not.

[crarko adds: This doesn't actually run a second copy of Safari, it just creates a new Space and puts the new full screen window in it. It looks like Preview does something similar when you open multiple documents while running full screen.]

10.7: Full screen Safari
Authored by: kerwinf on Aug 18, '11 08:16:41AM

If you use multiple displays, Safari in fullscreen blanks out all but the main display. There is no control over which display nor that the others become useless. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
