    We all know about using two fingers to scroll around a webpage or document that is too big to fit the Safari window, right?

    Hold down the control button, and move the mouse (or your finger on the trackpad) around. The window will move with the cursor! Pretty cool eh?

    If you are zoomed in it will.

    First hold control and mousewheel up (or equivalent) to zoom in, then move the mouse to move the screen around.

    How is this a Safari trick, not an OSX trick?

    I don't think it is specific to Safari though… It works in all applications for me.

    It's not Safari. It's Mac OS X's zoom-in feature..Kind of like the separate program "Magnifier" in windows, but better (and easier to get to). You hold control and do your two-finger scrolling, or scroll-wheel if on a desktop, and it will zoom into your screen.

    With all the posts you had, I'm amazed you are new to OS X.

    note the beautiful, fuzzy lack of resolution independence! Maybe 10.6 will finally give us this 10.4-promised feature. One can dream.

    It was never promised for 10.4. Nor was it promised for 10.5. It was merely being built in the background. Officially Apple still has yet to say anything about it publicly.
