    I was surfing on the web, not doing research, and my advisor came in and I went to Command-Q Safari, but instead I hit Command-1. Now, I thought it didn't do anything, but instead, it went to the 1st bookmark on the Bookmarks bar that wasn't in a folder. For instance, I have an Apple folder first but instead it went to Amazon which is right next to it. If you hit Command-2, it takes you to the next bookmark on your bookmark bar, and so forth. I tried other browsers to see if this was I feature that I've always had and didn't know it, but no, it seems unique to Safari. Well, just so everyone will know.

    Maybe I'm not explaing it well, but just try it to see what I mean.

    bookmarks

    This is probably the wrong place to post this - but I just dragged and dropped bookmarks from Chimera's sidebar into Safari! Works with folders too.

    BTW - you can shuffle the bookmarks in your Bookmarks Bar to assign hotkeys (numbers) for them.

    just saw a cool new one at RAILhead.

    cmd click the title bar of any page and you get a hierarchy of the site from the page you are on. little did i know that this is a feature borrowed from the finder....very useful for me.

    That has been a feature of the Mac OS since at least OS9, possibly OS8, and I love that feature, and its nice to know it is also in my web browser as well as my file browser. Cool find!
