Tabs in Safari enable us to open multiple websites in one browser window and easily navigate from one to another with a click. Wouldn’t it be great to have more control over the tabs in Safari? Now you can and it’s free.
Tab. Options. Safari.
Apple saw the light and enabled extensions in Safari a few years ago. The end result is hundreds of little utilities which customize the user experience in the Mac’s favorite browser.
Tab Options Safari Extension is the cumbersome name for an elegant way to get more options and gain more control over Safari’s version of digital sliced bread.
Think of tabs with controls and you get the idea. The Safari extension lets you determine where in Safari new tabs will appear (to the left or right of an open tab window).
You can even control what Safari does when you close the last tab (which usually closes the entire window).
Hotkeys? If you’re a Safari power user you’ll love the list of hotkeys, and you can assign which operations you want for each key combo. Open tabs, switch tabs, cycle tabs, go backwards, close, duplicate, reload or move a tab from the keyboard.
Tab Options Safari Extension isn’t for every Mac user, but if you prefer to use the keyboard rather than mouse or trackpad, you’ll appreciate the little touches built-in to this free extension.
