1 Hide fre­quently vis­ited pages

The pre­vi­ous version of Sa­fari in­tro­duced a new way of pre­sent­ing your favourite sites, dis­play­ing them as site icons when you clicked the Smart Search field. Be­low those sites you pur­pose­fully added to your list of favourites, the app presents your fre­quently vis­ited sites. You’re able to re­move pages that ap­pear in that area, but they might re­turn af­ter re­peated vis­its. While Sa­fari 9 lacks an op­tion to, you can now dis­able the list of fre­quently vis­ited pages by clear­ing the check mark next to Book­marks > Show Fre­quently Vis­ited in Fa­vorites.

2 Re­peat last search

Af­ter en­ter­ing search terms into Sa­fari 9‘s Smart Search field, the browser shows sug­ges­tions of what you might be look­ing for. If none of them looks suit­able, press ® to sub­mit your terms to your cho­sen search en­gine, just like in pre­vi­ous ver­sions of the app. What’s new is that if your search en­gine re­turns re­sults that look worse than Sa­fari’s orig­i­nal sug­ges­tions, click the Smart Search field again (or press ç+L if you’re a fan of key­board shortcuts) and you’ll find that Sa­fari has re­mem­bered your pre­vi­ous in­put and dis­plays its pre­vi­ous sug­ges­tions again.
