Safari 4 Cover Flow

Sunday, August 16, 2009, 09:26 PM – Tips and Hints

One of the things I like about my Mac and my Mac apps is how they integrate together so well. Especially when it is the apps that Apple itself creates. An example of that is an element in Safari 4 called Cover Flow. Cover Flow lets you flip through websites you have visited as easily as you flip through album art in iTunes. Cover Flow displays your bookmarks and history as large images, and you can pick out a website instantly.

The quickest way to access this is to click on the Search History button in the bottom right corner of the Top Sites Window.

However, if you know you want to look for a page you visited a week ago, this method might be too slow. In that case, click on the open book icon at the left end of the Safari Bookmarks bar. That will open a History of all the sites you have visited in the past month.

You can choose any day from that list by clicking on it and, when the web sites pop up, you can page through them using the horizontal scroll bar or your mouse. If you are using a trackpad you can swipe left and right.
