Please, tell me it's still accessible. The old keyboard shortcut command+option+A now brings up Page Resources.

Safari 5.2 (8536.2.3)

Activity Window is no longer under the Window menu. Also, Page Source has been moved under the Develop menu. That means if your Develop menu is not enabled, you can't view Page Source. Hope it's just a bug and not intentional.

It's still where you'd expect it in 5.2 on Lion.


By the by, an easier way to do this is install the clicktoflash extension. Also helpfully rids you of flash content unless you want it there.

the website for clicktoflash says safari 5.1 drops support for it?

also i dont even see them mention saving video content off websites as a feature

is it really easier than (command, option, A) finding the flv or mp4 file and double clicking it to start dowloading it?

i guess 1 click is easier than 2 but 2 clicks is not that bad either

You're looking at the website for the plugin, which is old and crappy. You need the extension: http://hoyois.github.com/safariextensions/clicktoplugin/

Running 5.2 in Lion, I can attest that is in fact NOT present anymore, which is very saddening.

Not here... Are you sure you're running the latest build? It was in the first one, the newest one has a version # of 7536.2.3 and its gone.
