If you start to type anywhere you've ever been [assuming you don't delete your history] it will start to present a list of the most-used/most common possibilities. Hitting Enter will go to the top hit; otherwise arrow down. Otherwise, if there's nothing useful in history to auto-complete & you don't step down with the arrow key… If it thinks it's a ...

Were able to solve the issue myself. For some reason, there were a few root certificates in my login Keychain, which have been revoked and replaced with newer certs in the System Roots keychain. Deleted those certs from my login keychain and everything works fine again.

High memory usage is not a reason for a machine to randomly restart, but if you say the memory usage has an effect on the frequency of it happening, the issue might be a defective RAM. There are several tools to test your RAM, a free example would be MemTest86.

You can use Better Touch Tool to assign custom gestures to any application. Here's an example how You this would look like in BTT (tip tap gestures to switch tabs):

There are many ways to do this. You can of course use AutoHotKey(ahk) to define any key combo and mapping you want, which can be used in any text-editing environment, not necessarily in a url bar. So this is an overkill. (Other hotkey apps also work.) Similar to Internet Explorer(or maybe Chrome, Firefox?), Safari also uses ctrl+enter(or return) as a ...

On iOS 5 (and maybe 6), the limit is a strict 1 week. On iOS 7 and later, the limit is around 1 week depending on iCloud sync status. It is currently not possible to increase this limit for Safari: Infinite Safari history on iPad?

This is the desired behavior (by Apple). The only case in which Safari searches within a word is if it's parted through capitalization. An example to explain why this makes sense. If I'd search for something like "or" it would then also find occurrences in words like "door", "therefor", "store", etc.

I've just discovered a hidden feature in Safari search that solves my problem. The attached picture shows the solution. Safari can search both for instances 'containing' the query or those that 'start with' the query. I imagine the default is 'starts with', which is why I raised the above question.

That looks like an n-dash to me, rather than a hyphen Hyphen - N-dash — typing 2 hyphens will change to an n-dash in regular text areas, if you have Smart dashes enabled in Edit > Substitutions, otherwise you could try copy/pasting this one... Safari iOS 8.1 — iPad

I have a similar problem. Last month, on one particular day, 80GB was downloaded (and another day, almost 40GB). This was definitely not something I was downloading - I don't even have 40GB of spare disk on any computer at home! After resetting router passwords (in case someone was hacking my wifi), and monitoring all my home computers, I also narrowed it ...

If you develop a website you can add a file called an OpenSearch specification that identifies the site as having searchable content. You can see the apple.stackexchange.com OpenSearch specification here. The important bit is the following line that tells browsers the format for submitting search queries to the site. <Url type="text/html" method="get" ...

The file that houses your reading list (and bookmarks) is called Bookmarks.plist and it is located in ~/Library/Safari/. You could restore it via TimeMachine or any other backup you are (hopefully) running.

JavaScript of Baidu Ad and Statistics are redirected to GitHub urls https://github.com/greatfire/ and https://github.com/cn-nytimes/ It is in fact DDoS due to large population. GitHub returns an alert page in order to stop the recursive JS running for each user. This is possibly done by GFW (Great Fire Wall) as the two URLs are not welcomed by them and ...

Actually, Wikipedia provided solutions for this, Wikipedia:Media help (audio and video) It is highly recommended that you use a program which is capable of playing both Vorbis audio and Theora video since these two different media formats are often in the same digital container format, Ogg.

Yes. Links, browsing history, open tabs. Everything should stop syncing on the device you uncheck Safari on.

I'm not sure how accurate or the usability of this would be, but it might be possible. On your website you would need a few things. A textbox of some sort that one would be able to dictate the commands into When the page loads, call the .focus() on the textbox, which will allow the user to call up dictation (Double press Fn) and tell you what they want to ...

WasteNoTime is a good app for this. It is a browser extension.

You can use added hot-keys to make a whole set of different actions happen when you click a link. This is the way I have mine set in Safari Preferences… This way, a simple click will open the link in the current page, Cmd ⌘ /click will open it in a new Tab but not activate it & Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ /click will open it in a new Tab & also bring it ...
