[/center]AppleStoreMaciPodiPhoneiPadiTunesSupport The new advanced features in Safari make it an
even better place to explore the web. Safari searches even smarter so
you’ll find web pages faster. It shows you all your open tabs in a great
new way. Right from Safari, you can tweet web pages, post them to
Facebook, or share them via Mail or Messages. And with even more
features, browsing is just the beginning. Unified Smart Search Field. Get everywhere from here.
Now there’s one simple field for both search terms and web
addresses. When you enter a web address, Safari takes you right to the
web page — and even fills in the entire URL. Safari finds what you’re
looking for in a faster and smarter way. As you type in the field,
Safari stays one step ahead and suggests a Top Hit — the closest match
to what you’re looking for. Safari uses pages from your bookmarks and
history to find a Top Hit, so you find the right web page fast.
As you type, Safari
suggests a Top Hit — the closest match based on your bookmarks and
browsing history — and popular search terms from Google, Yahoo!, Bing,
Tab View. A new point of view. Mountain Lion
Tab View gives you the big picture of your browsing. Just pinch
to see all your open tabs. Swipe left or right to move between them. And
tap a tab to go right to the website. Multi-Touch makes Tab View a fun
and natural way to browse.
You can also use the View
Tabs button to get to Tab View. Or choose Show All Tabs from the View
menu. Or use the Shift-Command-\ keyboard shortcut and the arrow keys to
move left or right between tabs.
iCloud Tabs. Pick up the web wherever you left off. Mountain Lion
iCloud Tabs makes the last websites you had open on your Mac
available in Safari on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. So you can go
from one device to another without having to search for the web pages
you were reading. It happens without syncing. Just click the iCloud Tabs
button in the Safari toolbar to see the web pages you last viewed on
any device. The URLs are encrypted for privacy. If you don’t want the
web pages you view on your Mac to be visible on your other devices, you
can turn on Private Browsing.1
Built-in sharing. Everyone’s in on it. Mountain Lion
Now you can share anything you come across on the web right when
you come across it — without leaving Safari. Just click the Share
button, then choose how you want to send it off. Share web pages using
Mail or Messages. Post them on Facebook.2
Tweet links. And
even add comments and locations. A single sign-on sets up Facebook and
Twitter for Safari, so you need to log in only once. If you want to send
a web page using Mail, Safari gives you four options. Send it in Reader
format so text appears in a clean, clutter-free format. Send the entire
web page in your message. Send the web page as a PDF attachment. Or
just send the link.
Improved performance. It’s power-browsing.
With improved performance in Safari, web pages load faster. The
on your Mac, so you’ll notice fewer lags and pauses while you browse.
Safari also uses a new approach to CSS that speeds up rendering. And
with improved hardware acceleration, 2D drawing of text and graphics is
faster and scrolling is smoother, even when your Mac is processing new
content on a web page.
More New Safari Features Better Privacy
Safari takes your privacy seriously. You can
turn on Do Not Track, an emerging privacy standard. Checking this
Privacy pane preference sends websites you visit a request not to track
you online. Safari also sends a request to websites not to track you
when you use Private Browsing. Offline Reading List
Safari now stores the content from web pages
in your Reading List so you can catch up on your reading even when you
don’t have an Internet connection. If an article in your Reading List
contains multiple pages, Safari fetches the pages ahead of time so you
can read the entire article offline. Developer Features
Bring on the next generation of advanced,
interactive web apps. Safari supports the latest edition of the
can create advanced filter and pixel effects such as blurs and gradients
and vary brightness, adjust hues, invert colors, or convert elements to
sepia or grayscale. The Web Audio API lets developers create and
customize audio effects in interactive web applications with rich media
content. And Safari supports HTML5 media synchronization for web pages
that require precise timing integration between multiple media elements
and text — such as captions, subtitles, descriptions, and chapters. With
website notifications, developers can keep users up to date about their
sites. To learn more about new developer features in Safari, click here. Improvements for Chinese Users
Safari makes the web even better for Chinese
users. Baidu, the leading Chinese search engine, is now available as a
built-in option in the search field. In Mountain Lion, Sina Weibo, a
popular Chinese microblogging service, is built into the Share menu.
Chinese users can click the Share button and select Sina to share links
right from Safari.
