Disable Command-Q for quitting applications
Authored by: palahala on Dec 15, '10 12:50:42PM

I don't understand how "Quit Safari" = "@Q" would disable Command-Q, as @Q actually is Command-Q. So I guess the web site software left out the dollar character? Otherwise, I assume earlier versions of OS X interpreted an uppercase Q as being Shift-q? Anyway: I think in Snow Leopard one would need: "Quit Safari" = "@$Q".

Also, there's another way to get it done, by overriding the existing shortcut to be nil:

defaults write com.apple.Safari NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add "Quit Safari" nil
