    I just discovered, that if you hit CMD + N to create a new window in Safari, if you hit the spacebar immediately you will get a new window with two tabs. (I'm not sure if this is a feature of Safari itself or some of the extensions I have installed). It seems relatively useless to me, but I just thought I'd share!

    Doesn't work for me. I just get a new window with a lot of white space in the address bar!

    No effect too after hitting the spacebar. Which version of Safari?

    Works for me, don't let up the command key though, if I do that it won't work, though like michaelrjohnson said I have no idea what use, or benefit this would be. No add ins by the way
    Safari 2.0.1

    I just get a new window with my home page and the Spotlight search field popping up.

    My default for spotlight is control+space, not command+space, maybe that's why I get the new tab and not spotlight

    Bizarre, I wanted to see how many extra tabs I could get, so I just kept pressing the space button, got 5 tabs open with one command+n, but now it won't do it at all. I'm like the rest of you guys now. Wonder what happened :confused:

    That's neat. I noticed that if I press Command+W and then tap the spacebar really quickly, I can get the windows to do a little pixel dance before they fade away. So cool!

    Not working for me even if I change Spotlight to Cmd+Space. Running Tiger 10.4.2 with all updates installed.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention I changed the default Spotlight commands.

    Either way, this is a bizarre and seemingly useless feature. :)

    Thanks for playing!
