Tip: this secret Safari shortcut quickly loads your last search results

safari-icon

SnapBack, a long-standing and very easily overlooked Safari for Mac feature, can save you a ton of clicks if you search a lot, and most of us do. With SnapBack, you can go right back to the last full search results page, even after traveling multiple pages in from your search results.

Part of the reason most users aren’t familiar with SnapBack has to do with Apple’s decision to remove the little orange SnapBack icon from Safari’s address bar and bury the feature  in the menus.

Here’s that secret SnapBack shortcut that everyone should start using right now…. Read the rest of this post here

How to disable Safari Suggestions

safari-icon

Apple’s browser on iOS and OS X includes a nifty content recommendation capability, called Safari Suggestions (not to be confused with suggested search words and phrases).

The feature activates when you start typing into Safari’s Smart Search field, popping up nicely designed interactive content previews for iTunes media, news, Wikipedia articles, weather forecasts, apps from the App Store, film showtimes, locations nearby and more.

Sometimes these suggestions are not related to your searches at all, sometimes they slow you down due to background activity and other times you simply might not care about them. You can, thankfully, turn Safari Suggestions off on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac with just a few taps/clicks, here’s how…. Read the rest of this post here

How to view recent Safari history on iPhone and iPad

iOS 7 Safari (app icon, large)

On any given day, I browse the web a lot—be it catching up on the news, doing research on future stories or skimming through my favorites to learn what’s the latest. And more often than not do I find myself struggling to make my way back to an article I stumbled upon a few hours ago.

Locating a specific item in browsing history can feel like finding a needle in the haystack, especially if you’re on the go.

Yes, I could just tap Safari’s back button multiple times or swipe to go back a single webpage at a time until I found the webpage I was looking for, but that’s a time-consuming process which unnecessarily wastes my iPhone’s cellular data.

As you’ll discover in this tutorial, Safari provides a very handy, though not immediately obvious shortcut which allows you to quickly jump to any previously visited webpage…. Read the rest of this post here
