Chapter 19. Safari

The Internet has come a long way since its early days in the 1960s, when it was a communications network for universities and the military. Today, that little network has morphed into an international information hub, an entertainment provider, and the world’s biggest mall. For that, we can thank the development of the World Wide Web—the visual, point-and-click face of the Internet.

Apple is obviously intrigued by the possibilities of the Internet. With each new release of OS X, more clever tendrils reach out from the Mac to the world’s biggest network: the Share button, integrated Facebook and Twitter, Dashboard, the Wikipedia link in the Dictionary program, Web clippings, Back to My Mac, and so on.

But Apple’s most obvious Internet-friendly creation is Safari, a smartly designed window to the Web. Herewith is what may be the world’s best and most complete coverage of Safari, all in one place, so you can get right to work killing time online.
