wtf apple.

This really sucks.. what was the problem leaving it in there? Between this and the search in the address I am not sure I like safari anymore.

Removed download rate also

It appears the download rate that used to show up in the same line with how much of a file has been downloaded has also been removed.

Use Chrome's Developer tools > Network until someone finds a workaround.

This is a big problem for me. I'm wondering if we can make a copy of Safari 5.1.7 and keep it alongside 6.0.

Can someone suggest an answer:

Why, why, why does safari not have the option to "ask where to download" option for file downloading??? It is handy to be able to choose destination rather than having it set to a single destination.

Every other browser has this. Why does apple refuse to put this into safari?

It's honestly the ONLY reason I don't use it, but would if it had this feature.

I use NetNewsWire (http://netnewswireapp.com/). It's a good app, but I don't like the fact that since the big splash regarding Black Pixel buying NetNewsWire they've made no updates in 9 months. Why they'd buy it only to make it appear to be abandonware I don't know, but that's what it feels like.

Thanks. will give it a go. Don't know why they took it away, it makes perfect sense to have feeds in your browser.

"MT-NewsWatcher" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Hmm

Holy crap, these GIANT tabs are 100% terrible. Wtf, Apple? I want the regular tabs back. They were much easier to manage that way.

Safari is definitely really snappier on my old 2007 Mac mini.

One other thing, is it me or Youtube now automatically switches to its new HTML5 player with Safari 6?

That's nice and all for HTML5 and open standards, but unfortunately the HTML5 player is simply unusable fullscreen on this Mac (less than 1 fps), even playing a 360p video. The Flash version can play 720p video without a hitch.

So I had to go to the Youtube HTML5 page and "leave the beta" to get the Flash player back.

Anyone can verify that this Youtube switch to HMTL5 is happening on Safari 6?

Thank you. I would NEVER have figured that out. The Develop menu should have been default ON and then you could turn off if you so desired. Who is gonna ever figure that one out??
"Who is gonna ever figure that one out??" - How about every power user? The whole idea of power user features is that they're NOT visible for normal users. Having the develop menu ON by default is a horrible idea.

wtf apple.
1. Safari->Develop->Inspector (command-alt-i)
2. Stopwatch icon in top left corner
3. Network requests

On that topic, the new Developer Inspector is a mixed bag -- it's now really, REALLY powerful (showing steps / time breakdowns for render steps, showing the actual DOM tree, etc.), but it's a horrible design compromise. It's absolutely unusable unless it's filling up >50% screen width. I used to have Safari and the Inspector both set to exactly 50% width, which would give me a nice 960px Safari window, and the inspector fully visible. Now, with all of the horizontal space taken up by sub menus, the network activity pane is absolutely unusable. 1cm wide columns with all text shortened by ellipsis. Not a fan. Will have to use more horizontal split layout now, which is not great for web dev IMO.

Please. Yawn. Go ahead and explain how Versions is a security risk. I know you're DYING to go on a rant, so consider your hook bit.

Cannot remove Safari 6

Tried to revert back to Safari 5 because I don't care for the Unibar and fat tabs - no can do. Safari cannot be removed or modified because it is required by OS X (or something to that effect).

Two finger tap, or right click > select Download linked file as > specify location

If you don't want to use the default Download folder and use another specific folder, set up a folder action - your downloads will go to that folder.

Is and always has been ⌘-shift-R - look in the Menus, keyboard shortcuts are listed right next to the action, if there isn't one listed you can create your own in System Preferences > Keyboard

if you use the excellent free BetterTouchTool you can program any swipe or tap you like, for years I have used 4 finger tap to enter and leave reader - couldn't live without it.

Actually, about the new Safari, I dislike the omnibar, the large tabs, and the removal of the Activity Window. I'll probably. I'll just have Safari 5.1.7 running on Mountain Lion if I can.
