With the release of macOS Mojave we got a brand new Safari, which also has many interesting changes. I will not describe in detail how the browser works, but will only tell you about seven useful tricks. Some of them are completely new, and some are well-forgotten old ones.
1. How to enable incognito mode
During incognito mode in Safari, Mac does not save the history of the pages you have visited, cache and passwords. Also, in incognito mode, sites cannot track what is open in neighboring tabs.
To enable, just go to
Файл ▸ Новое частное окно, or use the keyboard shortcut ShiftCmdN… A new window will appear, the address bar of which will be colored black. That’s it, now your privacy is protected.
2. How to add a link to favorites
Any web page can be saved to favorites. You can do this using the Share button in the upper right corner of the Safari window. Also this will make the keyboard shortcut CmdD…
3. How to view bookmarks and favorite links
All links that you add to bookmarks can be viewed in the Safari sidebar. To do this, you need to open it and go to the tab Bookmarks… You can also open the side panel by pressing CmdCtrl1…
4. How to clear your browsing history
To open the browsing history in Safari, you need to press the combination CmdY, and then press the button.
Please note that you can clear the entire history or for the last hour or day.
5. How to close all tabs except the current one
Sometimes there are so many open tabs that closing them one by one is simply lazy. To close them all in one fell swoop, just press the combination CmdAltW… All Safari tabs except the current one will be closed.
6. How to view the full link address
In order to make the browser interface a little cleaner, Apple has shortened all links in the address bar. If you open a page, you will see only the domain in the search address bar.
You can enable the full link in Safari preferences:
Safari ▸ Настройки ▸ Дополнения ▸ Показывать полный адрес веб-сайта
7. How to open windows from the last session
Closing Safari also closes all open tabs. If this happened by accident, then the last open tabs can be quickly opened:
История ▸ Открыть снова все окна из последнего сеанса
