“Tweaking Safari for a
Better Browsing Experience”
Presented by Jim Macak,
Double Click President
Safari has been bundled with Macintosh system software as the default browser since 2003. Many Mac users take Safari “for granted” and use it “as is,” never bothering to adjust its default preferences or enhance its functionality with browser extensions. However, with some “tweaking” Safari can provide a considerably improved world wide web “surfing” adventure.
The presentation about Safari at the May Double Click online meeting will include an examination of recommended changes to Safari’s preferences, instructions for enabling enhanced built-in functionality and an overview of a few third-party Safari extensions that can enhance one’s browsing experience.
In consideration of the health threat from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, “in-person” Double Click meetings at UW-M have been changed to “virtual” on-line meetings. We have chosen to use the Webex meeting software from Cisco as our on-line platform.
In order to “attend” the virtual meeting, members will need to download and install the free Cisco Webex Meetings software app on their computer, iPhone or iPad.
A .pdf document of instructions for installing and using the Cisco Webex Meetings software is available here: Double Click Virtual Meeting - Software Instructions.
Most Double Click monthly main meetings start with a presentation tailored especially for “beginners.” The session host is Steve Parker. Steve, the long-standing Beginner’s Group Coordinator and current Double Click Vice President, demonstrates macOS X tips and basic techniques.
Steve’s presentations are a popular feature of the first part of Double Click meetings. New (and even experienced) users are always sure to learn a tip or three from Steve. (If you have a tip, bring yours along to share!)
Note: On-line meetings are temporarily replacing physical meetings!
Regular Main Meetings of Double Click, Inc., the macOS User Group of Milwaukee, are held once a month on a Sunday afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m.
All regular meetings are free and open to the public.
