Restore Safari 3's 'in window' tabs to Safari 4 beta
Authored by: bedouin on Feb 25, '09 10:53:41AM

I'm gonna try and get used to it. So far it hasn't been too much of an annoyance and I like having the new "add tab" button.

Restore Safari 3's 'in window' tabs to Safari 4 beta

Note that in Safari 3 (and presumably in Safari 4 with the tabs moved to the window) you can always just double-click to the right of a tab in the tab bar to open a new tab.... which I find even more convenient than having to locate the little "+" add tab button.

Restore Safari 3's 'in window' tabs to Safari 4 beta

Also note that Safari 4 allows you to drag tabs to other Safari windows. I don't recall that Safari 3 could do that too. (Dragging a tab out of a window will create a new window with that tab, just like earlier versions.)

Safari 3 has that too

Safari 3 does indeed allow dragging tabs. You have to take care to drag up/down or left/right depending on whether you want it in another window or just reordered in the same window.

What happened to Cmd-Click the title, which now is a tab in Safari 4?
Authored by: palahala on Feb 26, '09 01:33:44PM

Safari 4 does not seem to offer the Cmd-Click (or Ctrl-Click in 9 and since 10.5) on the title any longer, as now the title is part of the tab? :-(

As for dragging: I just tried on another Mac with Safari 3, but I cannot drag a standalone window into another Safari window. I simply wouldn't know what to drag if there's only a single page (which does not show a tab in my settings) in that window.

You are right though: if a window has multiple tabs, then dragging a tab to another window does in fact work (if the target window has no tabs, then tabs will appear while dragging). But if there's no tabs in the source window, then what exactly should one drag into the other window? One could use menu Window, Merge All Windows of course. In Safari 4 even a window without tabs still shows the drag handle. Nice.

I wonder why Safari never used draggable "proxy icons" next to the title bar, though of course the favicon can be dragged if one needs the URL.
