Removing chrome, plus more Safari tricks
Merlin Mann | Sep 11 2004
Just mentioned in a comment here, but worth repeating since a couple people had asked about the “skin” on Safari shown in my screen shots.
It’s actually not a skin but a “chrome-less” version of Safari, courtesy of a great little app called Safari Enhancer. It lets you—among many things—remove the aluminum/chrome look from Safari. It also lets you hack up things like link style and colors, deactivate the cache, and import bookmarks from a bunch of different browsers. Most importantly perhaps, it can enable a debugging menu under which a wealth of fantastic features await you. (How about “Open this page in Firefox” and “Change my user agent to ‘IE 5’”? Great stuff.)
As long as we’re off on a Safari day, I’ll also mention the other Safari tools I swear by.
One that’s pretty popular with the kids that I don’t currently use is Saft, a plug-in that does Sogudi-like location bar searches, full-screen browsing, kiosk mode, and more. Lot of folks swear by it.
Any I missed or don’t know about that you love?
