10.5: Open new Finder or Safari window in current space
Authored by: spockboy on Dec 25, '07 03:19:25PM
You can achieve the same thing in QuickSilver with and some basic AppleScript:

tell application "Safari"
	make new document
	tell application "Safari" to activate
end tell
Simply save this AppleScript somewhere that QuickSilver will find it.

The good thing about the above AppleScript is that it doesn't mess around with focus (which can inadvertently switch Spaces). Unfortunately not all applications have a similar AppleScript command for making a new window (for example, Terminal does not).

I saved mine in my home directory, and called it "New Safari Window". I also changed it so that it had the Safari icon (by dragging the Safari icon from the "Get Info" window of, to the icon in the "Get Info" window of the new script file).

10.5: Open new Finder or Safari window in current space
Authored by: jaston1979 on Jan 18, '08 06:21:17AM

Depending on what your trying to achieve, you can also set spaces (system preferences) to open certain applications in every space. Just add Safari and click "every space" on the space option. So if you were to set Safari to be an application that opens in every space, then you could see the open safari windows in every space. If you were in space 2, 3, or 4 this would then allow you to open a new window in you current space without going back to space 1. So it doesn't switch you back to space 1, but the only problem is that that window will then show up on every space.
