Open current Safari tab in a new window via AppleScript
Authored by: delarius on Dec 31, '06 05:21:08PM

I do like the old fashioned way, for sure, but neither addresses what I think should be the main goal in this: popping a tab to a window w/o interrupting the 'session.' For example, if while writing this comment, I use either your script or press command-l, command-option-return; it interrupts the session. As far as I can see, the only way of doing it is to just close all the tabs - or repop them on another window (as tabs) by whatever means. There must be a way of popping a tab into a window while retaining the logins, etc, etc. Ok, I'll admit, I'm playing a flash game and I realize it's so slow (and doesn't do anything unless it's the top tab - tab, not window) that I need it to be it's own window.
I shall investigate,
Del

Absolutely. As I noted in the script, 'ideally the page would just be "moved" to a new window without reloading it,' which I think is getting after the same thing. There are many cases where it'd be nice to move something like an email or comment in progress or a video that's being played to a new window, but obviously my script isn't much help in such cases as the page is actually just closed and reloaded. If I knew a better way to handle page content in AppleScript I'd definitely use it.
