[rant] Safari

I started using Mac again around Tiger, and I hated Safari. That browser has been improved greatly since then, but there's one thing that keeps me from trashing Chrome. An easy way to sort bookmarks. It's a basic feature that IE had since way back when. What's keeping Apple from including that simple but helpful feature?

Safarisort is your friend.

I'll take a look at that. In the mean time, I found this page on Apple's website and submitted a request. I ask that anyone else who'd like to see that feature included submit the same request.

Just curious as I don't really use bookmarks.. what's wrong with the current way it sorts bookmarks? You have the Bookmarks Menu, the bar, and then the full list by clicking on the book icon. And all of them support folders.

I see no way to quickly sort them alphabetically.

Ah. As simple as that, huh? I thought you wanted it to do something fancy

That does seem like a pretty obvious oversight.

Safarisort is just what the Dr ordered. It's not as elegant as having the feature built in the browser, but it work. Now I just need to find a suitable search engine to replace Google. I'm going to attempt to separate myself from Google. Shouldn't be too difficult since I only used their browser and search engine. I read that »duckduckgo.com is a good alternative.

Call me a masochist but I actually like Bing.

Ok. I'll give them a try. I don't hate Microsoft. I just like OS X better for everything except gaming.

Why? is it because Apple is doing so? If that's your reasoning, thats pretty shallow...

Nevermind. I really don't need to justify my decision to get away from google to anyone.

Try them side by side if you can remember some of the recent things you searched for.

Thanks Skeechan. I appreciate that you decided to assist me rather than insult me.
