Mac users have many choices when it comes to Web browsers, as our recent browser round-up illustrated. Yet, Safari remains a popular choice for Mac users, and in this Macworld Video, I share a couple of tips about OS X’s built-in browser.

In this video, I talk about printing text boxes that have been resized using that new capability in Safari 3. I also show you how to create a one-key find shortcut. And I wrap up the video by showing you how to run a “newer” version of Safari, by updating to the latest version of WebKit, which is Safari’s rendering engine.

defaults write com.apple.safari NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add Find... @f
