Using Apple's Safari to Browse the Internet

Part of the The Internet For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Safari is the default browser for most Mac users. There’s a free version for Windows, too. Safari works differently than other browsers, but it’s still small and fast.

  • Safari comes supplied on the Macintosh, iPhone, and iPad. You can download the Windows version at www.apple.com/safari.

  • Set your browsing preferences: Click the Settings icon (the gear above the right corner of the web page) and choose Preferences, or Press Ctrl+, (comma).

  • Add the current page to your bookmarks: Click the plus-sign icon at the left end of the Address bar.

  • Set your home page: Click the Settings gear icon, choose Preferences, click the General tab, and set New Windows Open With to Home Page.

  • Erase the history of which web sites you've viewed: Click the Settings icon, choose Preferences, click the Privacy tab, and click Remove All Website Data.

  • Control cookies on your computer: Click the Settings icon, choose Preferences, click the Privacy tab, and set the Block Cookies option.

  • Block pop-up windows: Click the Settings icon, choose Preferences, click the Security tab, and click the Block Pop-up Windows check box if it doesn’t contain a checkmark.
