Yosemite has some great fea­tures for brows­ing and mak­ing calls. They can be dis­abled if they get in your way.

In Sa­fari, click View > Show All Tabs. This will show all the tabs open on all your de­vices, pro­vided they are all signed into iCloud with the same user name as your Mac. You can close tabs on your iPhone from your Mac by plac­ing the pointer over an iCloud tab’s name and then click­ing the cross that ap­pears to the right.

OS X has a darker dis­play op­tion for the menu and Dock, which can be more rest­ful for work­ing in low light. You can en­able this in Gen­eral Pref­er­ences. If you switch back and forth of­ten, you can en­able the ≈+å+ç+t short­cut by typing de­faults write -g _HIEn­ableThe­meSwitchHotKey 1 in Ter­mi­nal, then log­ging out and in again.

If you don’t want to re­ceive in­com­ing phone calls from your iPhone on your Mac, open FaceTime’s pref­er­ences and clear the box marked iPhone Cel­lu­lar Calls.

To stop text mes­sages from be­ing for­warded to your Mac, open Set­tings > Mes­sages on your iPhone and tap Text Mes­sage For­ward­ing, then turn off the switch next to your Mac’s name.

Sa­fari lists fre­quently vis­ited web pages, based on your brows­ing his­tory, when you click its ad­dress bar. You can drag any of th­ese pages out of the panel to re­move them from the list.

Sa­fari au­to­mat­i­cally pro­vides short­cuts to pages you visit of­ten. They can be re­moved in­di­vid­u­ally.
