For most Mac users Safari is the browser of choice. My website server logs indicate that about 70-percent of all visitors and readers use Safari. For security reasons I have Safari’s browser history and cookies deleted automatically. That also means Safari browsing sessions get deleted, too.
Here’s a free and easy way to collect and instantly restore multiple browsing sessions to Safari. The convenience is enormous. Simply click an extension and a previous browsing session– complete with multiple website pages in multiple Safari tab windows– appears and the pages load.
The extension is called, appropriately, SafariRestore. It’s free, simple to install and use, and very convenient; especially for Mac users who bounce around from website to website. Download SafariRestore and install as an extension to Safari.
Then, browse to four or five websites, open in different Safari window tabs. Then click the SafariRestore button in the browser toolbar. The open page has an option to Save Session. Click it. The session is saved. From then on, click that session i n SafariRestore and all those website pages will load automatically.
There’s no real downside to SafariRestore. Free. Easy. Useful.
I use the Cookie app to remove browsing history and website cookies each time Safari (or Chrome and Firefox) is used and Cookie’s settings respect the saved sessions.
SafariRestore lets you collect and save multiple website sessions and open all the webpages in each one with a single click. Nicely done and a big time saver.
