In part one of this article we talked about how Apple has added great features to the Safari browser and explored Reading mode and the browser’s improved performance. Today, we’ll look at more great features.
Perfect for iPhone & iPad users
If you own one or more iOS devices, then using Safari is a no-brainer as it synchronizes all the open browser tabs across all the devices. Thanks to iCloud, your Apple devices also sync bookmarks, Reading List items and browser history.
This is immensely beneficial for people who are on the move or for those who do not have the time to sit in front of their Mac to use the Internet. For example, by using the sync feature you can easily access the Reading List items that you added the night before on your iPhone so you can browse through them on the way to work.
Safari’s homepage is a sight to behold. By homepage, we are referring to the page that greets you every time you open a new tab or a new window. This page is a mixture of your favorite links (i.e. links from your bookmarks) and websites that you most frequently visit.
All of these links are presented in a neat symmetric manner with big clickable icons as placeholders. With a quick glance, you can choose to visit your favorite sites without any need of having to type in the address or go through a cluttered bookmarks list.
To conclude, Safari is faster, provides for better battery life and makes the process of browsing rather streamlined. Considering the fact that most of us spend a large part of our day browsing the Internet, it makes sense to ensure that our experience is as hassle free as possible. This new iteration of Safari ensures that and much more. To download it, go here.
