    I really enjoy the fact that piles of apps can be on at once.

    I want to know how to change the size of the Safari window so i can look on at it while looking at something else(like a DVD or TV show,for instance) without clicking.

    Pleassseeeee helpppp.

    You click the resize corner and resize it to whatever size and shape you desire.

    You could use a script to resize the window. Here's one that makes the window 800x600 and moves it to the upper left side of the screen:
    Code:
    tell application "Safari"
    	set bounds of window 1 to {10, 30, 800, 600}
    end tell

    Click and drag the lower right corner of the window.

    Read the original post. He wants to do it without using the mouse.

    Can you map an applescript to a key combination? Maybe quicksilver will let you do this? I'm nut much of a quicksilver or applescript guy myself but I'm sure others will know.

    Well, either way, you can't do it as-is.

    Make two bookmarks and put them (among the first 9, my advice is as number 1 and 2) in your Bookmarks bar.

    Name one "Small" (or whatever) and the other "Full". Edit the Addresses to:

    javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(800,600);

    for the small one (and adjust the numbers 800 and 600 to find your preferred "small" width and height, respectively), and

    javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight);

    for the full screen one.

    If they are positioned as number 1 and 2 in your Bookmarks bar, you can use cmd-1 and cmd-2 to access them...
