If you miss Camino/Mozilla keyword bookmarks in Safari, you might find this useful. Take the following template, change a few things, and drag it to your bookmark bar. On a keystroke (Command-digit, where 'digit' is from 1 to 9 for the first nine bookmarks), a dialog will pop up, you can enter your query/text, press enter, and voila! Pseudo-keyword bookmark! Here's the generic template:
Where +q+ is a stand-in for the %s one enters in Camino keyword bookmarks. You can then populate your bookmark bar with icons and run keyword queries in fewer keystrokes then on Camino.
Normally I have Safari set to open a new window when I click a link in Mail or some other external app; otherwise the page I'm reading gets overwritten. With the advent of tabbed browsing in Safari I was really hoping for Safari automatically creating a new tab in the same window, rather than open a new one, but it didn't seem to be in the Tabs panel of the preferences.
The trick is to set the option for "Open links from applications" to "in the current window" within the General options, with tabbed browsing activated. Though it doesn't explicitly say it anywhere, when set up like this, Safari creates a new tab in the same window for each link clicked in another app.
[robg adds: This seems completely non-intuitive to me, but sure enough, it works as expected! I had left the setting at "New window" to prevent over-writing what I had already opened; changed it and now links open in tabs ... cool!]
By accident, I clicked a link in Safari instead of command-clicking it to open it in a new tab. However, whilst it was loading, I command-clicked the link again, and it stopped loading in the current tab and opened in a new tab instead.
[robg adds: I cannot duplicate this behavior, though the author has confirmed it, and it works on a friend's machine. I'm not sure if it has to do with the speed of the connection or something else, but it simply doesn't work on my machine...]
Don't know if anyone was aware of this, but I think it's clever. On web pages that open links in new windows (or tabs), you can drag the link to the location bar to make it open in the current window (or tab). Good for when you're done at a site and don't want to open yet another tab.
Just accidentally ran across this. If you Command-Click the "Bookmarks" menu and then click the bookmark you want to open, it will open in a new tab. However, if you just click the "Bookmarks" menu and then Command-Click the bookmark you want to open, it will open in the active tab/window. A little confusing to describe, but basically, Command-click the Bookmarks menu to force the bookmark you are about to select to open in a new tab.
In Safari Beta 2, say you go to Google, or slashdot (or any other recently visited site in which you have been using their forms), click in the search box (or form box) and then hit the down arrow. You'll see a list of recently used entries, and you can use the down arrow to select one.
In Camino, if you get info on a bookmarks folder (Command-I or Control-click and select Get Info) and check the box for "Use in Dock Menu," all the links in that folder will appear in the pop-up menu for Camino!
[robg adds: Normally I wouldn't run a hint based on selecting an item in a dialog box, but this is a good update to a previous hint that had a much harder workaround for earlier versions of Camino (Chimera).]
I finally figured out why I haven't been able to successfully FTP from Safari the last couple of weeks. Apparently, the latest version seems to require that "Passive FTP" be enabled in order to function correctly. I had shut it off because some (IM/Chat) ports on the Linksys at work were disabled, and it made getting an FTP connection kind of a lottery situation sometimes.
In any case, if you're having trouble connecting to any FTP, you might go to the Network Pane of System Preferences, switch to the Proxies tab and make sure that "Use Passive FTP Mode" is checked. This did the trick for me. YMMV, naturally.
[robg adds: Safari seems to work fine for me with Passive mode disabled or enabled, but perhaps this will help someone who's having an issue with Safari FTP...]
I found this accidently when I dragged an email address out of its place on a web page. What bookmarking email addresses does is that, with one click, it opens a new message addressed to that email in your default email program. Hence, you could have a seperate emails folder for say, Apple support or whatever.
It's simple, just click and drag an email address from the webpage and drag it to the toolbar. You'll get a sheet asking you what you want to name it and where to put it.
[robg adds: You can also control-click on any email link on a page and select "Add Link to Bookmarks" from the contextual menu.]
