I have found this software for my own use just now and I remembered your question. That's what I have found, perhaps that can help you : iGetter Site Explorer allows exploration of the entire web or FTP sites, so you can easily find and download files you're interested in.

This is not related to OS X, so I’ll let the moderator move this question to other network. But I’m still going to answer this. The one you’re talking about is Apple Touch Icon which can be implemented by using the markup below: <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="57x57" href="/apple-touch-icon-57x57.png"> <link rel="apple-touch-icon" ...

1) No. Safari requires libraries and frameworks that will only be found in Mavericks. You can potentially snag the Safari.app from someone runnin v7 on OS X 10.9, but I'm fairly certain it will simply crash on launch due to the requirements mentioned above. 2) Yes you can still install Mavericks provided you have purchased it from the Mac App Store. It will ...

iOS 8.1 has been released and solves the Windows Authentication issue for SharePoint 2013 (and other web sites using Windows Authentication).

As shown on this Wikipedia page, Safari for Windows has not updated in over two years. There is much speculation as to why, but in terms of the Web, a browser that is over two years old is ancient. Gmail likely requires features that are not available in Safari v5.1.7. Therefore you will need to use an alternate browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.

You can enable "Develop" menu in Preferences > Advanced. Then you can select choose the User Agent to be iPhone or whatever. And then resize the window appropriately: Edit: This doesn't get around the minimum width for the window. Here is a workaround. Go to View > Show Sidebar. This pulls out the sidebar, which can be resized making the viewport ...

As suggested by Moto_Nomad, this appears to have been caused by the Facebook Video Chat plugin requesting Java Runtime Environment. I needed to undertake the following steps to locate and disable this process. Launch Terminal, and type the command launchctl list | grep facebook This results in something like the following: - 1 ...

"Web Content Process" = "Tab" is a wrong assumption. A Web Content process can hold more than one tab. Depending on the implementation details of Safari, it might be possible that after closing the last Tab related to a particular Web Content Process it does not automatically mean to close that Web Content Process. It might be feasible for Safari to keep ...

Taking a look at Chrome's keyboard shortcuts helps. Cmnd+Shift+I is to "Email the current page". It's a bit annoying because it's so close to the developer tools (Cmnd+Opt+I).

The command-line solution given in another answer eventually worked for me but I needed to do one more thing: after defaults write com.google.Chrome NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add 'Email Page Location' '\0', I entered the command: killall cfprefsd (and killall Finder for good measure). This stopped the annoying Cmd-Shift-I shortcut on Chrome from ...

On your iOS an Android devices you can use an app that will manage the passwords and log in for you. These apps clear up the cache and store the passwords in a secure manager. You can lock them with a password as well. I'm using LoginBox, which I found to be the best solution around.

You can go through all links and controls in Safari using ⌥ Option+⇥ Tab. However, that's not ideal for Google. On Google, you can press ⇥ Tab and an arrow will appear next to the first result. You can then press the arrow keys to go up and down through the list. When you have selected the link you want (either through ⌥ Option+⇥ Tab or Google’s way) you ...

⌥⇥ + ↩︎ ⌥⇥ will iterate through all selectable items on a page and ↩︎ clicks the highlighted element.                           To use ⇥ instead, go to Safari → Preferences → Advanced and select 'Press Tab to highlight each option on a webpage'.

I opened a website in Safari on my iPhone 5s (iOS 8.0.2) and waited a few minutes. Then I clicked the iCloud Tabs button in the toolbar of Safari on my Mac mini (late 2012, OS X 10.9.5) and noticed that it was empty. It wasn't until I clicked the home button on my iPhone (sending Safari into the background) that the iCloud tabs synced. Try opening a website ...

Another thing I've found is to use multiple fingers to push as many x's on the corners of the windows as I can simultaneously. This still isn't as handy as the close all button was.

There is also Safari Omnikey, which has a dedicated toolbar button and which I found easier to use: Safari Omnikey Chrome-like keyword search for Safari browser. Search Amazon, Wikipedia or any other site directly from your URL bar.

Download and install Safari 7.1 manually, directly from Apple. This is the same link the App Store uses to check for updates. (Note that if you install that package on anything other than Mavericks — assuming Installer would even permit such a thing to happen — you will probably cause more harm than good. That package is for Mavericks only, as the filename ...

A really simple way to achieve what you wish to do without the tedious task of dragging tabs to other windows is to go to the Menu Bar, then the Window menu, then select Merge All Windows. If you want to keep using your own method, go to the Menu Bar, go to View, then select Show Tab Bar.

In Safari, one can move even the last tab of a window into another window simply by clicking on the tab's title area and then dragging and dropping onto the tab space of your target window. Dragging the last tab to a new window causes that window to close. This is what it looks like to move the last tab, which I had opened at Top Sites. That is actual ...

In Safari 8 on Yosemite you can drag the URL (or rather domain name) and drop it onto the plus sign which usually opens a new tab in another window. This way you can move the last tab from one window to another one. I believe that previous versions just loaded the dropped URL in the active tab, replacing the tab’s contents. In Safari 8 you can still ...

The Safari filtering of XHR in Safari 6 and 7 is different to any of the other browser tools that I know of. You need to go to the Resources pane and in the navigation sidebar on the left you will see folders that group resources. To get to Resources from the Safari menu, choose Develop > Show Page Resources or ⌥⌘A or select the Resources icon from the ...

If you're in full screen mode, this behavior is normal (the hide toolbar option greyed out, not the lack of visible toolbar contents). If your not in full screen mode, then: Go to View -> Customize Toolbar... Then, perform the "...drag the default set into the toolbar" option. Now, go to the View drop down again and the Hide/Show Toolbar option should be ...
