Some hidden Safari tricks with Option key

One of those "probably known for years by most" items, but news to me.

In Safari, hitting Command-R will reload/refresh the page you're viewing. But if you're like me, and almost always use the Command-click to place links into a new waiting tab, I usually have 10 or 20 loaded pages all tabbed up and in one window.

Well, if you hit Control-Command-R, all of your tabbed pages will reload/refresh. Very handy if you go away for an hour or so, and want to see those pages all in their latest changes.

Safari will actually show this to you in its menu. Click on the View menu. Now, while the View has its drop down menu showing, toggle the Option key. You'll see the new menu item change. Check out both the File and Edit menu as well. There are some other options available when holding down the Option key. The best one for me is that "Plain Copy" one that copies without any formatting.

Great tips, thanks for posting! I always knew there was more than what I was getting out of it. I've run into some friends lately, though, who didn't know about tabbed browsing. I don't feel so behind after that! ;)
