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
