I've always disliked the fact that you can't reopen closed tabs in Safari...

What a pleasant surprise.

Why do that when you can just hold down the little plus sign?
You've never accidentally closed a tab?

Yes i have then i go to my history. All it does is pull up your search history, you can get to your history just as fast by pushing the book then the clock. Takes 2 seconds. It's not a shortcut, just another way of doing it.

They are not the same. Say you have 2 tabs open, A and B. You browse exclusively on tab A for half an hour. Then you close tab B. You want to get back to B again. It's not at the top of your history, but it will be at the top of recently closed tabs.

It's still in your history though. My point to the OP was there was always a way to access a closed tab before this shortcut.

Seems kind of nitpicky to me.

What OP is telling us is a shortcut, thank you for that now I don't have to go the LONG way through my history. I did not know of this shortcut and I am very grateful.

Yes we all know you can goto history to find your old closed windows, what he is showing is totally different and frankly we didn't all need your worthless opinion on HIS discovery.

That doesn't do any good if you've accidentally closed a tab since holding down the buttons doesn't allow you to 'Open in Background' and they're greyed out if you make a new tab.
