    Anyone notice since the new safari has 'share" you cannot easily email a friend a link...the email share button emails the actual page..
    Whats the point of that? Who wants to get a stale web page by email?

    thoughts?

    It just e-mails the link for me. Nothing more.

    It email the whole page, and the page is after my signature. Is there any way to put it before my signature? It's weird open the message and see signature at the top.
    I like the share button but it should retain the two options we had.

    When you click "Email this page" There should be a dropdown menu that says, "Send web content as" and you can select Link only.

    Look like there's still a problem with web content, PDF or link attached after the signature. In Lion, it's in the message (before signature). Is this a bug only happened to me?

    Nope. That happen to me as well. I think -- and hope -- that Apple sees this as a bug. It is VERY annoying.

    The position of the signature is controlled by a preference setting in Mail. Mail >> Preferences >> Signatures >> Checkbox: Place signature above quoted text.

    To me, this behavior seems correct. If I forward a web page to someone via email, I usually write a message like "hey, check out his article..." That message, along with my signature, should appear above the web page content that I'm forwarding.
