    Many of you may remember that in Mavericks even if you set Pages '09 as the default for ".pages" apps, they would open in Pages 5 if installed. In Yosemite, it appears that you can set defaults to older apps. I set all my ".pages" apps to open in Pages '09 and quit all apps. No matter which Pages file I opened, they all oped in Pages '09 and not Pages 5.

    Thought this was a interesting feature that may not be known.

    Default Apps (System Preferences); Safari 7 on Mavericks

    Smart! Thanks.

    Default Apps

    I still use RCDefaultApp on Mavericks. I guess that it'll be equally effective on Yosemite.

    A title bar with a non-native version of Safari

    Getting Safari 7.x to work in that way on Yosemite, as a default instead of Safari 8.x, might be non-trivial, but it should be worth the effort. No rush …
