Safari The smartest way to surf just got smarter.
Less toolbar. More web.
A streamlined toolbar keeps the browsing controls you use most nearby, but out of the way of what you’re viewing. So you see more of the article you’re reading and the photos you’re viewing on every page.
More ways to ﬁnd and view your favourite sites.
OS X Yosemite gives you great new ways to get where you’re going on the web — starting with the new Favourites view. Just click the smart search field and a grid drops down, revealing the icons of your favourite websites. Click an icon and off you go. Favourites view works the same way on your iPad and iPhone, so your favourites are always with you.
See all your tabs at once.
Click Tab view to see all your tabs, on all your devices, in a nicely organised view. Click a tab to reopen the page. Tabs from the same site are grouped together, so they’re easier to manage. And you can search tabs by URL or by a term in the web page title.
A more intelligent way to search.
When you search for something, Safari provides Spotlight suggestions from sources like Wikipedia, Bing, Maps, news and iTunes, along with suggestions from your search engine.
New features to protect your privacy.
Safari now gives you more control over your privacy on the web. You can open one Safari window in Private Browsing mode — which doesn’t save your browsing history — while keeping others in regular browsing mode. So while you do your online banking privately in one window, your browsing history is still being saved while you surf in another. You can also now search the web using DuckDuckGo, a search engine that doesn’t track you.
Support for the latest web standards.
Safari has a long history of supporting technologies that enable innovation on the web. And that’s no different in OS X Yosemite. It now offers native support for Netflix. Which means Netflix video playback is more energy efficient than before, so your battery lasts up to two hours longer.1 Safari also supports WebGL, so developers can create immersive 3D experiences that work natively within the browser.
