Open current Safari tab in a new window via AppleScript
Authored by: palahala on Jan 10, '09 04:08:21AM
For a moment I thought this was about CLONING the existing tab to a new window, to get two instances. But as you're closing the original tab: why not do it the Safari way? ;-)

Simply drag the tab away from the tab bar let go. This will disconnect the tab as a standalone window, and will give you a nice effect as well.

Or: menu Window, Move Tab to New Window?

(If you'd like a split screen within the very same tab, then these bookmarklets might help you: http://pimpmysafari.com/bookmarklets/ but I doubt that is what you want)

Oh, I now see this was quite an old hint. Anyway, the latest Safaris support this feature; don't know about the 2006 versions :-)

I imagine that the solution was needed in times of Safari 2 and, palahala, you are right that now in Safari 3 you can just drag & drop.
