    User->Library->Safari is where Safari's bookmarks and preferences are kept. Is there any way I could set the location to a different spot?

    Would I have to go into the application file itself and modify something? It sounds to me like that changing Safari's path manually somehow would be the way to go. It sounds like it would be possible. Or if there's some sort of preference I'm unaware of that could be set to change the path, how could I do it?

    Why?

    In any case, you should be able to move the folder and have the OS remap the connection dynamicly.

    I shall do that now.

    [EDIT] That was dumb. Do do it. Lost my bookmarks and I am not having a good time trying to replace the lybrary folder.

    [EDIT 2] Fixed what I did. If you move it your brain will explode. Just a warning. Are you a Windwos user?

    Just being funny, most things in OS X end up in logical places, and on the 2k/XP networks I admin, well stuff ends up everywhere.
