Quickly rename bookmarks in Safari's Bookmarks Bar System 10.8
You no longer need to right-click and display a dialog to be able to edit the name of a bookmark in Safari' 6's Bookmarks Bar. Just click and hold the bookmark; the name will become highlighted and you will be able to rename it in the Bookmarks Bar.

As a commenter pointed out, this is a feature of Safari 6. I edited the hint before Safari 6 was released, so wasn't aware that this would be the case.

Strictly speaking, is a Safari 6 feature, not Mountain Lion. And it's a great one!

Yeah, since Lion has Safari 6, you should really have a separate category for Safari hints. Putting this under 10.8 is a bit unfair. I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time that a hint has been specific to Safari and not the OS revision, so a new category would make sense.

There is a bug here. While you can click and hold to highlight the bookmark name, if you try to select part of the name to delete using the mouse Safari interprets that as a click on the bookmark and you are whisked off to the website. The only way to edit is to move the cursor with the arrow keys and select holding down the shift key or just start typing a new name for the bookmark. Selecting text is not functional.
