Cheat sheet: Safari
Discover features that give you a smoother experience on the web
On the surface, your Mac’s built-in web browser looks much like any other. It has a dual-purpose bar for entering the address of a website or page, or terms you want to search for, and a tab bar for all the pages you have open. Yet it packs in many useful tricks for easier browsing.
Before we move on to those, let’s talk about a couple of shortcuts that are really helpful. First, rather than reaching for your mouse or trackpad to click in the search bar, press ç+l instead. This moves the input focus to the bar.
Second, as you’ll see on the opposite page, typing in the search field displays various kinds of suggestions. Quickly move down them a category at a time by using ç+æ. In fact, this also works in the results presented by macOS’s Spotlight feature.
