First try to boot your computer into Safe Mode and open Safari. If it does open you can see if there are any extensions causing the crash and remove them. You can also update to the Safari 8.0.1 beta from https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action# and see if that helps fix it. If all else fails. Boot to the recovery partition and reinstall the OS ...

In Better Touch Tool, add a trackpad gesture for Two Finger Swipe Right (I use natural scrolling) and associate it with the 3F Swipe Left (Page Back) action. I also added a gesture for ...

Quick Look doesn't make web requests, so it can't show the contents of the webpage without opening it. The question you linked was asking about .html files, with the actual source saved locally. .url files only include a URL, so without downloading the page it can't render anything. You can still use .html or .webarchive files and they will be rendered in ...

One way to do this in any version of OS X from 10.4 onward would be to create an Automator action. If you create a service like this one: and save it, you can then assign a keystroke to it, so you can trigger it from the keyboard in any application.

Safari 8.0 does: Press and hold the Control key for a moment while you’re editing the location and you’ll see the search icon turn into an icon indicating that it’s interpreting the input as (part of) a URL instead of performing a search.

I've experienced the same thing, new windows instead of tabs opening when control clicking, and it has seemed totally random to me, too. The Safari Extension 'Link Thing' (maybe 'LinkThing' -?) will, by default, open all links in a new tab without your having to hit control unless the page (e.g. DuckDuckGo) disables and overrides the user's browser ...

I downloades SelfControl, and while it seems the only option for Safari users, it is a very limited program. You can only block up to 1 day.

Unless you've unwittingly hit the hot key or activated some software that wants to use voice recognition, it shouldn't be loaded. That being said, if you don't want to use ...

You can kill this process (in terminal or activity monitor), and it seems as long as the Dictation & Speech pref pane (Yosemite) has dictation and enhanced dictation off and the pref pane is not open, it won't re-spawn.
