An AppleScript to launch Safari and open a given site
Authored by: geek-e on Jul 23, '04 11:45:07AM

Couldn't you avoid the applescript all together and just create a URL file with the site you want to visit? Go to the site, click on the Favicon (to the left of the URL) and drag it to the desktop or wherever.
You could even go as far as changing the icon of hte URL file to that of Safari and put it in the Dock. Click that instead of the icon and you'll go to your site every time.

Depends on where you want to put it. . . .

You can save the script as an app, change the icon, and put it with the other apps in the dock. The URL clip has to go on the other side of the divider.

So, if you like to keep specific things, or nothing except minimized windows (like me) on that side of the dock, this script would be pretty handy.
