This month we will be looking at Safari.

How to start using Safari on Mac
Safari is Apple’s web browser — your portal to the internet. You can visit websites, bookmark favorite pages, and more.

Understanding the Browser Address Bar
Many people misuse the browser address bar by typing in the names of sites instead of complete URLs. In the address bar you can type a search term, domain name, or a full webpage address. But if you simply type in the name of a site, you will get search results instead of going to that site.

Using Safari Reader View
If you are trying to read an article online and the font is too small, too light, or other page elements are too distracting, you can use Safari’s Reader View to focus on just the text and other primary elements of the article.

Using Safari Favorites
In Safari you have a Favorites list that is part of bookmarks but also has some special features. You can see them at the top of your browser window, on a special home page and in other places. Learn how to add, edit and delete items from Favorites.

Setting Your Default Search Engine
You can use the address bar in Safari to search with your default search engine. In Safari Preferences you can set this to Google, Yahoo, Bing or DuckDuckGo. But you can browser to any search engine you want and use it outside of the address bar.

Enable Flash In Safari
By default Flash apps are not going to appear on webpages in Safari. However, it is easy to enable them by clicking on the prompt or using Safari’s Preferences. In some cases, using Preferences may be the only way to get Flash working properly on a site.

Autofill Your Name and Email in Safari
In addition to IDs and passwords, you can autofill your name and email address into forms with Safari. This is handy for filling out simple forms where you are not logging into a site. You can change which information is available in the Contacts app.

Safari Web Surfing Techniques
Here are three key techniques that everyone who surfs the web on their Mac should know. But using tabs, browsing history and page search you can move around quickly and find what you want.

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pacheco Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.
