Part 9. Living Online > Surfing in Safari

Surfing in Safari

Start up Safari (in the Applications folder).

Click a link on your home page to go to another page.

Choose View, Show Address Bar if the address bar isn't already visible.

Type the URL in the address bar for the site you want to visit.

INTRODUCTION

For many years, Mac web surfers had a simple choice of web browsers: Netscape or Internet Explorer. Apple has decided to trump everyone with its very own, Mac-only browser, Safari. It's fast, it's smooth, and—best of all—it's designed from the ground up to work the way a Mac should.


TIP

Two for the Price of One

If you want to view a new web page without getting rid of the one you're looking at now, press -N or choose File, New Window to begin surfing in a new window while leaving the current window open in the background.


Click the Previous Page and Next Page buttons to go back and forward through the web pages you've visited.

Click Reload to have Safari redisplay the page from scratch; this is how you can update pages that change every few minutes, such as online auction listings.

Type search terms in the Google Search field and press Return to go to the Google site and initiate the search.
