    Previously in Safari, you could right-click on a tab (Control-click) in the tabs bar and reload a single tab or all tabs. I definitely used this short-cut a lot, especially to reload all tabs at once if my internet was farting out. Bring back right-click to reload tabs!!!

    This is a function stock in chrome and internet explorer. Hard to believe safari don't want to add this function.
    Plus, reopen recently closed tab is also a stock function in chrome and internet explorer. Hard to believe, because not all sites opened store a history item in browser.

    Well, right-click to reload tab was in Yosemite, so I don't know why they got rid of it. Probably gonna send them some feedback about it

    How did it work? If I right click I get an option to "reload page". Do you mean you could right-click with your mouse on the relevant tab on the tab bar?

    Not sure what you’re complaining about. I’ve never encountered the situation where a page was not added to my history. Also, you can reopen your last-closed tab with cmd + Z. I’m also pretty sure that there are extensions that can help you with

    @TOPIC: report, report, report. You have a feedback utility. Use it.

    But if I want to reopen not only last tab, say two last opened tabs, cmd+z could not complete this task.

    Sometimes pages you have visited will not add to history. Such as pages you open from a link in previous page.

    I don’t have that problem. All my pages seem to be added to the history. Can you give an example page? Best if you report that as well if you think this is a bug.

    A sample site is tsdm.net. This is a Chinese language site which I have seen this issue for months. In fact, this is not necessarily a serious issue if safari could support reopening more than one closed tabs. Now I use an extension to partly achieve this, but this extension doesn't provide function to view tabs I have closed.

    I have submitted this as an enhancement feedback weeks ago.

    yes, surprised to see this gone in the beta, been using it for a long time. right-click, reload all tabs. great way to keep refresh my 'default' tab set... hope it returns...


    EDIT: still not there (PB2); surprising. miss this feature a lot...

    Same here. Submitted Apple feedback requesting to have this restored in final release.
