an iCloud account Safari is packed with features that make your experience of browsing the web much better. The Smart Search Field offers suggestions of websites and recent news items based on the keywords you type. It also includes a shortcut that enables you to cut down on the number of steps you need to search within a site you’ve previously visited.
Sometimes a website’s layout and presentation can be discouraging when it comes to reading a long article. Safari Reader extracts the important content from such pages – even if the content has been artificially split over several smaller pages – and presents it in a cleaner view that’s easier to absorb.
Web pages that you haven’t added to Reading List but have left open on another Mac or iOS device can be opened on your Mac in just a couple of clicks.
Safari also includes features for managing your browsing history. First, you’ll want to use private browsing mode if you use a shared user account and want to research gifts for your partner without tipping them off, for instance (or for anything you want to keep private). If you forget to use that, there’s an efficient way to clear out only your recent activity… Alan Stonebridge
