Ask Different is a question and answer site for power users of Apple hardware and software. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Safari has a feature which removes duplicate first words of page titles form tabs, which is useful when sites' pages all begin with the same word or two. "Site Title | Page title 1" and "Site Title | Page title 2" show up as "Page title 1" and "Page title 2," for instance.

However, this can be annoying when two pages have the same first word, but are different, such as the two Ask Different pages, "Ask Different chat - chat.stackexchange.com" and "Ask a Question - Apple - Stack Exchange." These become "Different chat […]" and "a Question […]," which isn't very smart of Safari.

Is there any way I can control this to whatever extent possible?
