To empty the Safari caches, first you need to have the Develop menu displayed in the menu bar (Preferences | Advanced | Show Develop menu in menu bar). Then on the Develop menu, click on Empty Caches. You can also use the keyboard shortcut: option+cmd+e.

The only (very slow and clumsy) solution at the moment is to clear your Safari browsing history via the settings. At the moment there is no other way to close all tabs at once.

You can swipe tabs to left. Not all at once, but still quicker

Google are 'punishing' users of old browsers by showing them a different UI. The only real way round it is to update your browser... or you could try this... I found this advice on how to 'fake' the User Agent, but it doesn't claim to be a permanent fix, nor can I test it as I'm on Safari 7. Here's a temporary solution for Safari 5.1.10 on a Mac using ...

You probably just need to reset your Safari. You can only download up to Safari 5.1 version. After that it comes as part of the operating system.

The issue is a failure of the Cisco VPN client, as described here, and it was fixed by running sudo /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/websecurity_uninstall.sh. This had failed to occur to me because I hadn't used the client recently when the problem emerged. But looking through the console quickly revealed an absurd number of error messages that quickly identified ...

If the main idea is scripting Safari, I would try using Automator before trying AppleScript. I'd start by hitting the record button and then: Open Safari Navigate to your webpage GET by saving the webpage source Allow the page to do whataver AJAX calls you may want it to do save the webpage source again Fill out a form, hit submit for your POST save the ...

When clicking the bookmark Finder opens a window to the enclosing folder of the script. However the handler closes the folder again. Leaving the impression that no folder was opened. on ...

in other words Safari sucks. I've tried using CSS to center and image both vertically and horizontally in Safari and it doesn't work in a responsive site. It will however work in FF, IE, Opera, and Chrome just fine. Well, actually you can statically center an image in Safari, but it will not be able to be responsive and scale with the window size and still ...

It is a bad idea to let your browser memorize all your password, especially the important ones. It is easy to read stored passwords of any browser, even from Firefox password manager (https://www.raymond.cc/blog/how-to-find-hidden-passwords-in-firefox/#comment-645841) I would prefer to control which password is saved with my browser. But if you wanna stay ...

While far from a perfect solution, you could run this script from Rich Trouton on a regular basis to install updates. Note that the current version of the Flash player is 15, so you'd need to update the script's fileURL entry for this to download and install the correct .dmg.

I recommend using firebug. It is one of the most useful tools for me as a web developer. It works in safari. And I can't say enough about it. By the way, I'm in no way affiliated with firebug.

Safari stores its window state in /Users/USERNAME/Library/com.apple.Safari.savedState/com.apple.Safari.savedState. If you close Safari, then rename that folder, the next time you open Safari it'll open with a blank slate. Alternatively, you could temporarily disable the saved state feature across the board by going into the General pane of System ...

Open the Bookmarks menu, top left, right click the folder of bookmarks, Open in Tabs... Though irritatingly, it re-uses the current window, so maybe start with a new one first.

iCloud syncs Safari bookmarks as well as Keychain passwords across your Macs and iOS device today. Simply sign into iCloud on your Macs, and configure both "Safari" and "Keychain" in iCloud settings in System Settings. If you are having trouble getting this to work, check here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4001 In my experience, iCloud is not as quick, ...

I suspect it's an example of a new policy from Google, where they're deliberately showing old versions of their search pages if you use an out of date browser. You can find information about this from, for example, this BBC news report. It's probably a good idea to update Safari, for security reasons. This is what Google are trying to get you to do. But if ...

I use the same bash command as Neglectogram above, but used it within a somewhat primitive script I wrote, which uses Pocket's "add by email" solution as outlined in the other answer to this post. I go in to detail here as there seems to be a demand for a solution to this and such I want even novice users to be able to use this (if it works properly). My ...

First I recommend you should update your Safari app. I just made a comparison using the same web site for Images. My Safari (7.0.6) + Chrome + Firefox show exactly the same. The top row shows the categories you can select (also as images). You can scroll down true the images or select a category.
